It's a fact: Thirty-two of the 56 earned runs the Cardinals' Darryl Kile has given up have come in his five losses. His ERA in the other 13 games is 2.58.
Who's hot: The Diamondbacks' Steve Finley has homered in four of his past five games after going 20 games without one.
Who's not: The Cardinals, who entered the weekend with the fewest errors in the NL, have seven in their past three games.
On deck: The Pirates will be on the road for 11 of their next 14 games.
