    Howard and Pujols (40th homer), advancing strong cases for themselves today.

    Did Todd Helton get any mention at QB?

    The answer is yes. A couple other hitting streak notes ...

    Only five times have 30-game hit streaks been compiled in consecutive seasons (including Rollins/Utley):
    2002 (Castillo, 35) and 2003 (Pujols, 30)
    1998 (Eric Davis 30) and 1999 (V. Guerrero, 31; L. Gonzalez, 30)
    1997 (Garciaparra, 30; Alomar Jr., 30) and 1998 (Eric Davis, 30)
    1969 (Willie Davis, 31) and 1970 (R. Carty, 31)
    1894* (B. Dahlen 42, B. Hamilton, 36) and 1895 (Fred Clarke, 35)
    1893* (Geo. Davis, 33) and 1894 (B. Dahlen 42, B. Hamilton, 36)

    Three times have there been multiple 30-game streaks in one season:
    1999 (V. Guerrero, 31; L. Gonzalez, 30)
    1987 (Molitor, 39; Santiago, 34)
    1980 (Landreaux, 31; Brett, 30)
    1922 (Sisler 44, Hornsby 33)
    1894* (B. Dahlen 42, B. Hamilton, 36)

    *not in modern era

    Cubs bullpen melts down again. Bonds up, going for No. 729. But walks.

    If Cinci and Atlanta win tonight, the Marlins are 1 game back of the Phillies, Reds and Padres.

    Now, the Marlins get 10 against the Phillies.

    Assuming that isn't a 5-5 split, the winner of that is the wild-card favorite.

    Still, I like the Marlins' chances a lot.

    16 of the 26 are at home.

    Other than the Phillies, whom they play seven times at home, the Marlins play the reeling Diamondbacks next, skippinng Webb, Livan and Batista as they did Carpenter in St. Louis.

    They play the Mets seven times, the Braves three and the Reds three.

    One thing about the Tigers: last year at this time, the White Sox were going through the same thing.

    Great race. Howard has the cumulative stats (with more games played). Pujols has the rate stats. Pujols will make the playoffs. Howard probably won't.

    This doesn't include Game 2 of today's doubleheader.

    Only 18 doubles for Howard????... what a horrendously low number.

    Reds lose, 2-1 to DAVID WELLS.
    68-69, 25 left.
    2.5 out of the wild card race.

    Cincy just wrapped a 1-8 west coast swing. Fortunately, there are still six more against Pittsburgh.

    Can the Reds go 13-12 the rest of the way? That is the question.

    Prince Albert is Ian Snell's daddy -- four HRs against the Bucs' starter this season. In 12 games, he's slugging 1.158 against Pittsburgh.
