Dodgers: Chan Ho Pak, who in 1994 became one of the few players to make his professional debut in the majors, was making his seventh career appearance.

Expos: Montreal played in its first game in under three hours: 2: 41.

Giants: Barry Bonds played center field for the first time since Aug. 6, 1991, when he was with Pittsburgh. He moved over from left field in the sixth inning to replace Stan Javier, who left the game with a strained right hamstring. Javier's status is day-to-day.

Marlins: Shortstop Kurt Abbott sat out because of a sore thigh, and second baseman Quilvio Veras remained sidelined for the second game in a row because of a strained left hamstring. Both are day-to-day. . . . Marlins starters have worked at least seven innings in each of the first five games.

Phillies: Rich Hunter, 21, is the youngest pitcher to start for Philadelphia since 19-year-old Mark Davis started in September 1980 against Montreal.

Pirates: Jay Bell's triple was his 1,000th career hit. . . . Danny Darwin was the last of the 25 Pirates who left spring training to appear in a game.

Reds: Right-hander Jose Rijo, bothered by bone chips in his right elbow, is expected to have the chips removed tomorrow in Birmingham, Ala., by orthopedist Dr. James Andrews.

Rockies: Colorado is the only team in the majors that hasn't committed an error this season.
