Expos: The team honored Bob Oldis before the game for his 28 years of service to the franchise. Oldis, who will retire at the end of the season,, was the team's original bullpen coach but made his mark as scout. He was the organization's scout of the year in 1976.

Indians: Kenny Lofton is the first Cleveland left-handed hitter to get 200 hits since Dale Mitchell had 203 in 1949. Carlos Baerga, a switch-hitter traded to the Mets, had 200 in 1993 and 205 in 1992. . . . Kevin Seitzer's grand slam was the ninth by the Indians this season, a club record.

Marlins: Manager John Boles has a record of 33-32 since taking over from Rene Lachemann at the All-Star break.
