Quote: "It's been awhile since I've done that, and to do it twice in a week, it's been nice. This whole year has been perfect except for the month of August. I'm in heaven." - St. Louis slugger Jim Edmonds after hitting two game-winning homers in three days against the Mets.
It's a fact: The Giants have the best home ERA in baseball.
Who's hot: St. Louis has won seven of eight and is a season-high 20 games over .500.
Who's not: Milwaukee's Mark Loretta was 2-for-33 before his pinch-hit double in the Brewers win over Colorado.
On deck: Al Leiter goes for his 15th win as the Mets play the Cincinnati Reds.
