Hot corner

April 11, 2000

Quote: "The weather is something to me that's a fun element. It's another facet of the game. It's supposed to be cold in Milwaukee on April 10. I was kind of sorry there weren't any snow flurries." -- Florida Marlins manager John Boles on the Brewers' home opener.

It's a fact: The Rockies, who have led the majors in attendance in each of their seven seasons, drew 48,094. It was a club record for Opening Day at Coors Field, and the 50,427 total tickets distributed set a regular-season record.

Who's hot: Four of the six hits by the Braves' Andres Galarraga have been home runs.

Who's not: Florida's Alex Gonzalez is hitting .096 (3-for-31).

On deck: Los Angeles at San Francisco. A longtime division rivalry resumes in the opening of Pac Bell Stadium.
