Barry Bonds went 1 for 7 in the series, with six walks and no homers. Chipper Jones sprained his ankle in the eight inning and is day-to-day at this point.
In San Diego, Mike Piazza went 1-4 with an RBI in a losing cause for the Padres who lost 10-4 to The Rockies. Mike is hitting .200 on the season, with 3 hits in 15 at atbats including his Opening Day homerun. No word on when Mike Cameron will come off the DL.
