Giants: LF Moises Alou left last night's game against Colorado after the second inning with tightness in his right hamstring. Alou, bothered by the hamstring in recent weeks, appeared to slow down while going from first to third on a single by Ray Durham in the second.

The 39-year-old Alou was San Francisco's lone representative at last month's All-Star game. His status was uncertain.

Phillies: Right-handed reliever Aquilino Lopez was claimed off waivers from the Rockies, then was optioned to Class AAA Scranton Wilkes-Barre.

The Phillies placed reliever Terry Adams on the restricted list to make room on the 40-man roster. Lopez was 2-0 with a 2.75 ERA in 14 games with the Rockies.

Rockies: Recalled RHP Scott Dohmann from Class AAA Colorado Springs. It's his second stint with the Rockies after making the opening day roster. He pitched in nine games for Colorado, going 0-1 with an 18.90 ERA before being optioned to the minors. He was 2-1 with a 4.38 ERA in 39 innings at Colorado Springs.
