Quote: "I've never had to go through something like this. I just have to be patient. I expect to go out and pitch the way I can, and it's not happening." - Cubs starter Kerry Wood, after giving up five runs on four hits and five walks over four innings against Montreal on Friday.
It's a fact: Rondell White's three-run homer in Montreal's 9-8 loss to the Cubs on Friday cleared the left-field bleachers, bounced onto Waveland Avenue and into an open second-floor window of a three-story apartment building.
Who's hot: When the Dodgers' Shawn Green walked in the third inning yesterday, it marked the 48 consecutive game in which he reached base safely.
Who's not: After yesterday's 3-1 loss to the Padres, the Reds have lost five straight games and four straight series - their longest streak since dropping five straight series in July 1998.
On deck: Darryl Kile brings his 10-3 record to Los Angeles as the Cardinals face Chan Ho Park (8-4) and the Dodgers.RAWNAME:z954721_07-56-50.txt
