Jeff Blauser had never hit a home run in the major leagues before, so he wasn't quite sure how it felt. Blauser hit his first major league home run with two out in the eighth inning to give the Atlanta Braves a 2-1 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers Tuesday. With the score tied 1-1, Blauser hit a pitch from reliever Jesse Orosco (2-2) over the left-field fence. "I knew I hit it well," Blauser said, "and I knew the wind was blowing across the outfield.

Historians may note that the recent fire in the luxury box section of Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium wasn't the first in the place. The first occurred when the former Brave mascot, Chief Noc-a-homa, accidentally torched his tepee while he was celebrating a home run. The Chief's fire was extinguished when fans in the upper deck leaned over and poured beer on the flames.

Dodger Manager Tommy Lasorda says now is the time that all you can do is "hope and pray." On Tuesday it worked. Lasorda got a fine performance from rookie right-hander Jim Neidlinger, and Kal Daniels doubled home two runs and scored two as the Dodgers again crept within 4 1/2 games of Cincinnati in the National League West by defeating the Atlanta Braves, 6-2.

A season of testing for Fernando Valenzuela began Friday night with the Atlanta Braves, which was something less than a trial by fire, given the Braves' 54-106 record in 1988, the worst in the National League. The Dodger left-hander with the suspect shoulder emerged with at least a passing grade: Eight strikeouts in 6 2/3 innings earned him that much, even if three of the K's came at the expense of one Geronimo Berroa.

Publication in a local newspaper of the route for a possible World Series parade in Toronto annoyed several members of the Braves. "They're going to have a parade for finishing second, too, aren't they?" first baseman Sid Bream said. Said shortstop Jeff Blauser: "That's OK. They can plan all they want. We're going to have one down Peachtree Street."

The Atlanta Braves acquired outfielder Otis Nixon from the Montreal Expos and placed shortstop Andres Thomas on unconditional waivers. Nixon, 32, stole 50 bases in 231 at-bats last season. He batted .251 with one home run and 20 RBIs in 119 games. To get Nixon and minor league third baseman Boi Rodriguez from the Expos, the Braves gave up catcher Jimmy Kremers and a player to be named. Thomas lost his battle with free agent Rafael Belliard and Jeff Blauser for the shortstop job.
