Worth noting

• The Bucs' poor performance hitting with runners in scoring position is reflected by the fact they have actually outhit the opposition in five of their last 11 losses, dating back to the Sept. 10-12 series in Cincinnati.

• Walker has gone 43 at-bats since his last extra-base hit, a double on Aug. 21.

• Andrew McCutchen's triple in the eighth-inning of Monday's game was the Bucs' 35th of the season, matching last year's total. The last time the club had more was in 2005 (38).
