Jim Neidlinger said he will approach the most important start of his budding major league career tonight as would any former United Parcel Service worker who has pitched everywhere from Buffalo to Venezuela, experiencing everything from a rock-throwing crowd to the birth of his first child. "I will come to the park, grab a cup of coffee, sit right here in front of my locker and relax," he said. "I know about the importance of keeping everything under control."

Jim Neidlinger pitched a no-hitter to lead the Nashua Pirates to a 2-0 victory over the Glens Falls Tigers in Eastern League baseball Tuesday night. Neidlinger, who on Monday was named to the league's all-star team, struck out six and walked two as he boosted his record to 6-6. His ERA fell to 2.76. After the game, the 21-year-old, three-year veteran of the Pittsburgh Pirate organization credited his performance to his ability to change speed and hit the corners.

With Fred Claire's patience with the Dodger bullpen nearly out, he has renewed serious trade talks with the Milwaukee Brewers for relief pitcher Dan Plesac, sources said. The trade, which almost was made in spring training, would send some combination of Dodger pitchers to the Brewers--including Mike Hartley and minor leaguers John Wetteland and Jim Neidlinger--in exchange for Milwaukee's all-time save leader.

The ejection of Jose Gonzalez from Thursday's game was one of the uglier ejections in recent memory as Gonzalez threw his bat and helmet before he left the field. According to Gonzalez, who was ejected when he argued two strike calls after a strikeout, umpire Mark Hirschbeck taunted him. "I said, 'You called a bad pitch,' and he said, 'Just because you are having a bad day, don't take it out on me.' " Gonzalez said.

In this most unusual of springs, Dodger relief pitcher Jay Howell had the most unusual of outings Monday. Especially for a guy appearing in only his fourth game since last September. Facing the Atlanta Braves in the eighth inning with a 2-1 Dodger lead, he struck out Lonnie Smith. And struck out Nick Esasky. And struck out Dale Murphy. After the Dodgers had won, 2-1, Howell then offered a most unusual explanation. "It was a fluke, an aberration," Howell said. "It didn't happen. I didn't do it.

Ramon Martinez learned the true price of his $85,000 holdout Tuesday when the Dodgers' opening-day pitching assignment was given to Tim Belcher. Belcher will cap a comeback from arthroscopic shoulder surgery when he takes the mound on April 9 at Atlanta. It is an honor Martinez thought belonged to him. "I don't know what to say," Martinez said, shaking his head. "Nobody has told me anything. I don't know what is going on. I don't know what to think."

The Dodgers and Philadelphia Phillies found yet another way to decide a one-run game in the ninth inning, ending their wacky three-game series Wednesday with a 3-2 Dodger victory. This one followed Monday's 2-1 brawl-dominated Dodger victory and Tuesday's 12-11 Phillie victory that featured a nine-run ninth inning. Before a Dodger Stadium crowd of 27,934, Hubie Brooks drew a one-out walk from losing pitcher Joe Boever (2-4) and took third on Mike Scioscia's hit-and-run single.

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.
