It's a fact: The Atlanta starters in this three-game series -- Denny Neagle, Greg Maddux and Dennis Martinez -- have 503 career wins; Montreal's three scheduled starters have won a total of two.
Who's hot: Gary Sheffield is 16-for-36 (.444) with two homers, nine RBIs and seven runs in 10 games for the Dodgers.
Who's not: For the third consecutive game, no one on the Reds had more than one hit. The Reds have had back-to-back hits only three times in the past three games.
On deck: The Pirates' Jason Schmidt goes for his seventh straight victory today and tries to become the NL's first eight-game winner.
