MIAMI - The sellout crowd in the Miami Marlins' new ballpark cheered the introduction of their starters, who were accompanied by women dressed as Latin showgirls. There was another roar for Muhammad Ali, who delivered the first pitch. Then Kyle Lohse and the World Series champion St. Louis Cardinals went to work, and the place grew quiet. Lohse held Miami hitless until the seventh inning and pitched into the eighth to help the Cardinals win the first game in Marlins Park, 4-1, Wednesday night.

No place like home Hank Aaron's childhood home in his native Mobile, Ala., will be renovated and turned into a museum once it's relocated next to the stadium named for the Hall of Famer and former home-run king. Hank Aaron Stadium, known as "The Hank," is home to the minor-league Mobile BayBears. The Aaron house is expected to be moved in October and could open as a museum in late March at the stadium's Gas Light Park. "Hammerin' Hank" grew up in the small home in the Toulminville neighborhood, about a block from a city park that now bears his name.

Rick VandenHurk and three relievers combined on a one-hitter, and Mike Jacobs hit a three-run homer to help the Florida Marlins beat the visiting Atlanta Braves, 4-0, last night. VandenHurk (1-1), recalled Monday from Double A Carolina, pitched five hitless innings for his first win since last Aug. 23. He walked five and left the game after throwing 94 pitches. Chipper Jones led off the sixth with a line-drive single up the middle off Joe Nelson, but Nelson retired the next three batters, Renyel Pinto pitched two perfect innings, and Matt Lindstrom pitched a 1-2-3 ninth.

Brian Schneider homered against his former team again and Carlos Delgado also went deep last night to help the New York Mets beat host Washington, 9-3, finishing a three-game sweep. Oliver Perez (9-7) handed a 5-3 lead over to the Mets' beleaguered bullpen in the seventh, and Joe Smith, Duaner Sanchez and Aaron Heilman combined to throw 2 1/3 scoreless innings. Perez allowed six hits, walked three and struck out eight. Washington has lost seven straight. Schneider, the former Nationals catcher, hit a two-run drive off Collin Balester (2-5)

Twice Garret Anderson put the Atlanta Braves ahead, and the second time they stayed there. Anderson's first three RBI this season helped the Braves end a four-game losing streak last night by beating host Florida, 8-6. The longtime Angels star, acquired in the offseason, came off the disabled list Tuesday after missing 12 games with a strained quadriceps. "I'm just happy to be out there playing," said Anderson, who has only 33 at-bats. "I haven't played that many games this year, and it's going to take some time to get into shape.

With the games getting closer, the Florida Marlins keep winning. Jorge Cantu singled with two outs in the ninth last night to score Emilio Bonifacio, and the Marlins remained unbeaten through four games by defeating the visiting New York Mets, 5-4.

They're 4-0 for the first time in franchise history.

FOR YEARS the Eagles have touted the silver lining to Andy Reid's playbook. Only Bill Belichick has more wins than Reid since 1999. Reid's 10 playoff wins are the most in Eagles history and rank him 11th all-time. No coach in Eagles history has won more games or achieved a higher winning percentage. Yet what do we say? That we would trade all of it for one Super Bowl championship. One friggin' parade. We used to say the same thing about the Phillies before 2008, but the truth is that these last four seasons have been far more fun than frustrating, have made South Philadelphia a place to be on spring, summer and autumn nights far more often than a place to be avoided.

Baseball loves its records, and it's hard to argue with that when you consider the following: Brothers Justin Upton and B.J. Upton both hit career home run No. 100 on Friday night, just about an hour apart and in different leagues. First up was Justin Upton, who plays for the Diamondbacks. He connected in the second inning against Phillies starter Kyle Kendrick. Then it was his older brother's turn. B.J. Upton of the Tampa Bay Rays went deep in the fourth inning against the Orioles' Tommy Hunter.

NO ALGORITHM can predict what will happen when a hitter with the speed of Jose Reyes sends a weak chopper bounding through the infield grass. Instincts and muscle memory take over when the bat meets the ball: Placido Polanco charges in from the basepath, scoops up the bounce, and in one smooth motion snaps a throw in the direction his momentum is traveling. From start to finish, the play takes 4 or 5 seconds. The decisive moments take a fraction of that. A half step is all that separates comfort from trouble.

Without the injured Ryan Howard and Chase Utley to start the season, the Phillies talked about playing more small ball. For an example on how small ball is executed, all the Phillies had to do was look in the opposing dugout on Monday. The Miami Marlins ruined the Phillies home opener by alternating small ball with some heavy hitting during Monday's 6-2 win at Citizens Bank Park. Miami put the heat on immediately when Jose Reyes and Emilio Bonifacio opened the game with singles and then executed a double steal.

A STAR THIRD baseman most of his career, 37-year-old Scott Rolen made a big impact in a rare pinch-hitting appearance. Rolen drove in the winning run in the ninth inning with a sharp infield single that third baseman Hanley Ramirez failed to handle, lifting the Cincinnati Reds to a come-from-behind 6-5 win over the Miami Marlins. Pinch-hitting is often thought of as a niche for marginal players who can adapt to the demands of the role. Rolen, a seven-time All-Star and eight-time Gold Glove winner, looked just fine in it. "It's certainly not easy," said Rolen, now 8-for-18 as a pinch-hitter in his career.

THE SLIDING Atlanta Braves stumbled again last night, losing 6-5 to the Florida Marlins on Omar Infante's game-ending two-run homer. Atlanta now has dropped three of four, and its NL wild-card lead is down to 2 1/2 games over surging St. Louis. The Braves have eight games remaining, the Cardinals nine. Rookie closer Craig Kimbrel came in to preserve Atlanta's 5-4 lead and retired the first two batters he faced in the ninth. But Emilio Bonifacio then hit a chopper to third baseman Chipper Jones, who could not field the infield hit. Infante then drove a 1-0 pitch to deep left for his first game-ending homer.

JOHNNY CUETO kept his promise to Dusty Baker. Baker, the Cincinnati Reds manager, asked Cueto to aid his tired bullpen by throwing a complete game, and Cueto agreed to do it. "Dusty asked me for a complete game this morning. I said, 'I will,' " Cueto said. Cueto pitched a three-hitter, Joey Votto added a three-run homer and tied his career high with five RBI and the Reds completed a three-game sweep of the visiting San Francisco Giants with a 9-0 win yesterday. Todd Frazier hit his first career home run and Drew Stubbs had a career-high four hits as the Reds posted three consecutive wins for the first time since sweeping the Dodgers June 13-15.
