PADRES 6, MARLINS 2: Host Florida stole 10 bases _ one short of the modern NL record _ yet still lost.

Luis Castillo and Cliff Floyd stole three bases and Mark Kotsay and Preston Wilson swiped two for the Marlins, who were 10-for-10 on steal attempts.

The post-1900 NL record of 11 was set by the New York Giants in 1912 and tied by St. Louis in 1916. The modern major-league mark of 15 was set by the New York Highlanders, later the Yankees, in 1911.

The last time any team had 10 steals in a game was June 30, 1996, when Colorado did it against Los Angeles. The Marlins' team record for stolen bases was six.

Stan Spencer (1-1) won for the first time in 14 starts. He pitched 6 innings, allowing two runs and five hits. He struck out six.
