CHICAGO -- Sammy Sosa hit his major league-leading 25th home run, and Todd Hundley homered twice Friday as the Cubs beat the White Sox 8-4 in the first game of the season for city bragging rights.
The homer was No. 475 for Sosa, tying him with Stan Musial and Willie Stargell for 19th on the career list.
Matt Clement (5-4) gave up three runs and five hits in 7 2/3 innings.
Expos 8, Blue Jays 2
MONTREAL -- Lee Stevens homered and had a season-high four RBIs, and Tomo Ohka pitched seven strong innings to lead Montreal.
Stevens drew a bases-loaded walk in the first off Justin Miller (4-3) before hitting a two-run homer -- his ninth of the season -- in the third.
Braves 2, Red Sox 1
ATLANTA -- Gary Sheffield drove in Rafael Furcal on a sacrifice fly in the eighth inning, leading Atlanta over Pedro Martinez and Boston.
Martinez (7-2) lost his second straight. He gave up both runs in eight innings of work, allowing eight hits and striking out five. In the three starts before this one, he allowed 11 earned runs.
Orioles 7, Phillies 3
PHILADELPHIA -- Jeff Conine tripled in two runs to break a tie in the eighth, lifting Baltimore.
Philadelphia, coming off a 5-1 road trip, fell a season-worst 10 1/2 games behind Atlanta in the NL East. The Phillies finished two games behind the Braves last year.
DH-FREE DAYS: For the first time in nearly 30 years, a designated hitter did not come to bat in a full day of major league baseball games. A full slate of games was scheduled to be played Friday without a designated hitter for the first time since the American League implemented the rule for the 1973 season.
