Braves: Andruw Jones' 11-game hitting streak ended.

Cardinals: Shortstop Royce Clayton made his seventh error when he made a good play up the middle then threw the ball away on an infield hit by Edgar Renteria. Outfielder Ron Gant, who batted .138 against Florida with one RBI last year, did not start and struck out with two men on in the seventh as a pinch hitter.

Cubs: Brant Brown extended his hitting streak to a career-high 12 games with a first-inning single.

Reds: Barry Larkin got his 300th career steal in the first inning. Willie Greene returned to the lineup at third base. He left Monday night's game with stiffness in his back, and had one pinch-appearance since then.
