Game Notes
THE HOME RUNS BY FLORIDA'S MIGUEL CABRERA AND JUAN ENCARNACION IN THE THIRD INNING WERE BACK-TO-BACK.
HOME PLATE UMPIRE JERRY CRAWFORD LEFT THE GAME AFTER THE TOP OF THE FOURTH INNING BECAUSE HE WAS FEELING ILL. RIGHT FIELD UMPIRE MIKE REILLY HAS TAKEN OVER BEHIND THE PLATE AND THE GAME WILL NOW BE UMPIRED BY A FIVE MAN CREW.
CORRECTION -- THE NEW FLORIDA PITCHER IS CHAD FOX, NOT CARL PAVANO AS PREVIOUSLY REPORTED.
