Previewing the National League.
A team-by-team look at the National League entering spring training, including key players each club acquired and lost, and dates of the first workout for pitchers and catchers, and the full squad:
Friends and neighbors of a gunman who was shot dead by police as he fired randomly at passing cars on a Hollywood street — critically wounding one man — say he was deeply troubled by the recent breakup with his girlfriend.
The defending NL Central champions have opened the season playing like they belong in first place.
Capsules of National League teams, listed in order of finish last year:
Skip Schumaker hit his first career grand slam during St. Louis Cardinals' biggest inning of the season, supplying more than enough runs for right-hander Chris Carpenter to beat the Cincinnati Reds for the ninth time in a row, 7-3 on Monday night.
