Braves: Atlanta's five-man rotation is a combined 40-12. Andres Galarraga celebrated his 37th birthday. He is the oldest everyday player for the team since 37-year-old Hank Aaron hit a career-high 47 homers in 1971.

Diamondbacks: Have had at least one extra-base hit in their last 59 games.

Reds: Owner Marge Schott, recovering from a broken hip suffered on opening day, made a rare appearance at the stadium. With the help of a cane, she walked onto the field before the game and got hugs from Reggie Sanders, Willie Greene, Bret Boone and manager Jack McKeon.
