Quote: "One of the things that motivates me the most is how good these guys are playing." - Marlins pitcher A.J. Burnett, who makes his second start today since coming off the DL after missing half the season
Who's hot: The Marlins' Luis Castillo has a 16-game hitting streak.
Who's not: The Reds lead the majors with 70 wild pitches.
On deck: Sammy Sosa is on course to become the only Cub to exceed 100 RBIs for six straight years. Hack Wilson had 100 or more RBIs for five straight years from 1926 to 1930.
