WEATHER: Dome sweet dome

HUGE WEEKEND? Carlos Beltran has 988 hits in the American League to go along with his 1,329 career hits in the National League. That means he needs 12 hits — which would be quite the weekend — to become the eighth player all time with at least 1,000 hits in each league. The others are Frank Robinson, Dave Winfield, Vladimir Guerrero, Fred McGriff, Orlando Cabrera, Carlos Lee and Alfonso Soriano. You might remember that Soriano reached the mark on May 14 against the Mets.

TWO OF A KIND: Should Beltran reach 1,000 hits in the American League, he would also join Soriano as the only players in MLB history to record 1,000 hits, 500 runs, 500 RBI, 100 home runs and 100 stolen bases in each league.

ONE MORE TIME: Chris Capuano is facing the Blue Jays for the fifth time this season. He made relief appearances against Toronto three times as a member of the Red Sox, then he earned a no-decision against Toronto on July 26 in his first start as a Yankee (6 IP, 5 H, 2 ER, 4 BB, 4 K).
