NL hot corner
Quote: "I'd like to get back to .500 first."- Cubs manager Don Baylor after his team's six-game winning streak ended.
It's a fact: The Marlins' Preston Wilson has 129 strikeouts, and he remains on pace to break Bobby Bonds' major-league record of 189 set in 1970.
Who's hot: The Reds' Sean Casey extended his career-best hitting streak to 19 games.
Who's not: The umpires at the Cubs-Giants game, who wore a variety of shirts and pants because their gear did not arrive by game time.
On deck: Ken Griffey and the Reds take on Vladimir Guerrero and the Expos.
