Quote: "He did what he was supposed to do with it." -- Marlins starter Alex Fernandez, on giving up a home run to Sammy Sosa
It's a fact: The Dodgers, the final NL team to play a home game, are 24-19 in Los Angeles home openers and 21-18 since Dodger Stadium opened in 1962.
Who's hot: Pokey Reese, hit just above the left elbow Monday by a pitch, returned to the Reds lineup and went 4-for-4 with a walk.
Who's not: Expos rookie Peter Bergeron struck out looking three times. He has struck out 10 times in 11 games.
On deck: The Dodgers recalled Eric Gagne from Triple-A Albuquerque, and he will start today.
