Quote: "The one didn't have anything to do with the other. I'm not used to wearing them. I don't want to make any excuses. I should have made the catch. I just lost the ball in the sun."

-- A's third baseman Olmedo Saenz, who, without sunglasses, dropped a fly ball in foul territory in the second inning, allowing the Rockies to take an early lead.

It's a fact: The Astros lead the National League with 182 doubles, and Craig Biggio leads the majors with 39.

Who's hot: After yesterday's 1-for-3 outing, Royals' Joe Randa is hitting .492 against (29-for-58) against the NL.

Who's not: Reds' Steve Avery has given up 26 runs -- 21 earned -- in the first innings of his 18 starts.

On deck: Barry Bonds and the NL West-leading Giants visit Juan Gonzalez and the AL West-leading Rangers for Game 2 of their series tonight.
