Quote: "I thought Coors Field was a great hitters' park, but this place tops them all." - Ellis Burks, who had a home run among the Giants' 22 hits at Enron Field in Houston

It's a fact: The Astros are 21 games under .500 for the first time since Oct. 6, 1991.

Who's hot: Phillies catchers Mike Lieberthal and Tom Prince have combined to throw out 12 of the past 21 runners who have attempted to steal.

Who's not: The Cardinals' Edgar Renteria is hitless in his past 16 at-bats.

On deck: The Padres' Tony Gwynn's has 534 doubles, one away from tying Lou Gehrig for 22nd all-time.
