Notables

* San Diego's Eric Young separated his right shoulder making a catch against the center-field fence in the first inning of the Padres' home opener against Pittsburgh. Young appeared to jam his arm against the fence as he made a leaping catch of Jason Bay's fly ball for the third out of the inning.
* Alex Gonzalez's first homer in the fourth ended a streak of 15 innings without a run for Florida.
* Washington's Brad Wilkerson had reached base safely in eight straight trips to the plate (a walk and seven hits) before he fanned in the seventh.
* Cincinnati's Adam Dunn struck out three times, raising his three-game total to seven. He set a major league record by fanning 195 times last season.
* Eric Milton, who won his Reds debut Wednesday night, will start again Sunday at Houston, getting only three days between starts.
* Baltimore's Rafael Palmeiro singled in the ninth, his first hit in 10 at-bats.
* Ivan Rodriguez, starting his second season with Detroit, had his sixth four-hit game with the Tigers.
* The Royals' David DeJesus extended his hitting streak to 18 games, thanks to a ruling on a slow roller that was thrown away by Carlos Guillen.
* The Angels' Vladimir Guerrero has hit safely in all 21 games he's played against Texas.
