Giants' Bonds loves Los Angeles

Posted: Thursday, April 04, 2002

LOS ANGELES -- Barry Bonds did it again.

The San Francisco slugger hit another pair of home runs Wednesday night, giving him four in two games and leading the Giants over the Los Angeles Dodgers 12-0.

Bonds became the second player in history to homer twice in the opening two games of a season, joining Hall of Famer Eddie Mathews, who did it for the Milwaukee Braves in 1958.

Cubs 10, Reds 3

CINCINNATI -- Sammy Sosa hit his first home run of the season, and Kerry Wood (1-0) struck out 10 in only five innings Wednesday night to lead the Cubs over the Reds.

Marlins 6, Expos 5

MONTREAL -- A.J. Burnett (1-0) took a shutout into the eighth inning, and Derrek Lee hit a grand slam for Florida as baseball returned to normal in Montreal with a tiny crowd and an Expos loss.

Phillies 3, Braves 1

ATLANTA -- Vicente Padilla (1-0) pitched six strong innings in his first major league start, and Pat Burrell hit a solo home run and scored twice.

Pirates 5, Mets 3

PHOENIX -- D'Angelo Jimenez singled home the go-ahead run, and Phil Nevin doubled in two more during the ninth inning for San Diego.

The World Series champion Diamondbacks, behind Randy Johnson and Curt Schilling, shut out the Padres in the first two games of the three-game series.

The Padres ended their scoreless streak in the first inning when Jimenez led off with a double and Ron Gant hit a sacrifice fly.

Mark Grace's homer off Jeremy Fikac (1-0) in the eighth tied it at 5. Trevor Hoffman got his first save.

Mike Myers (0-1) took the loss.
