The last time the Dodgers started a left-hander in a regular-season game was Sept. 24, 1992, when Bob Ojeda took the mound. The Dodgers have since played 429 games, 24 shy of the major league record without starting a left-hander. Joey Eischen would love to be the one to break the streak. He was good enough during his four innings of a 5-4 victory over the Montreal Expos on Tuesday at West Palm Beach, Fla., to warrant at least another start in his bid to become the Dodgers' fifth starter.

The message light was blinking on Expo General Manager Kevin Malone's answering machine when he arrived to work Saturday morning. It was Kathy Eischen, the mother of Dodger rookie reliever Joey Eischen. "It was a beautiful call," Malone said. "She thanked me for trading Joey. "I'll tell you something, [Friday] night was the first time I ever prayed and pulled for an opposing pitcher. Can you believe that? For two innings, I was pulling for him. I didn't like that.

The Dodgers, acknowledging they might have erred by not re-signing center fielder Brett Butler but not about to let the transgression ruin their playoff hopes, pulled off baseball's biggest trade of the season. They acquired all-star center fielder Roberto Kelly and rookie left-handed reliever Joey Eischen from the Montreal Expos Tuesday for right fielder Henry Rodriguez and infielder Jeff Treadway. "They could have saved themselves a whole lot of trouble by just keeping me, couldn't they?"

As the high school pitcher prepares to throw to the batter, several major league scouts are waiting to clock his fastball with radar guns. The scene is repeated at West Covina High baseball games many times when 17-year-old Joey Eischen pitches. The 6-1, 185-pound left-hander is one of the top pro pitching prospects in the San Gabriel Valley--maybe the best. Eischen is a center of attention, at times a little more than he would like.

There was no greater beneficiary from the Dodgers' trade Wednesday with the Detroit Tigers than Dodger reliever Darren Dreifort. Dreifort, who figured he'd be sent back to triple-A Albuquerque at the end of this week when starter Tom Candiotti is eligible to return from the disabled list, now will be with the Dodgers for the rest of the season. In fact, it was Dreifort's performance during his first two appearances that led to Joey Eischen's departure.

Four Dodgers, including third baseman Mike Blowers and outfielder Chad Curtis, have elected to become free agents.

He batted .265 with six homers and 38 RBIs in 92 games, but injured his left knee on July 17 and didn't play after that. Curtis, 27, batted .

The Dodgers never have been so happy to see Dodger Stadium on Tuesday after their harrowing trip from New York on Sunday night. The Dodgers' chartered flight was 45 minutes en route to Los Angeles when it was discovered that there was a compression problem, causing several Dodgers to have ear aches. They turned around and landed in Newark, N.J., never flying above 10,000 feet. "We were about to blow up," reliever Joey Eischen said, "and they probably didn't tell us."
