A daily glance inside the numbers from the world of sports:
Sidney Ponson, who took the loss in the Reds' 10-6 victory over the Orioles on Sunday, has lost seven consecutive interleague decisions, tying him for the second-longest streak for any pitcher since interleague play began in 1997. Shane Reynolds lost nine consecutive interleague decisions (1999-2002). One of the players tied with Ponson got off the schneid Sunday: Tim Wakefield got the win as the Red Sox beat the Cubs 8-1, ending his interleague losing streak at seven. The other pitcher to lose seven in a row was Willie Blair (1998-2001).
