The Cincinnati Reds traded outfielder Eric Davis to the Dodgers on Wednesday night as part of a four-player deal that sent right-handers Tim Belcher and John Wetteland to the Reds.

Kip Gross did not join the Dodgers in their group embrace Monday after they swept their second doubleheader in four days, but that doesn't mean he didn't celebrate. Somewhere out on Interstate 10, maybe he honked his horn. After defeating the Montreal Expos in the first game, 8-3, Gross said he would listen to the second game, the Dodgers' 4-3 comeback victory, while driving a compact truck he recently purchased from teammate Dave Hansen. Destination? Albuquerque.

From the moment he was sent to the minor leagues on the last day of spring training, pitcher Kip Gross dreamed of the day he would return to Dodger Stadium. But he never dreamed he would live through a nightmare first. After being recalled from triple-A Albuquerque on Wednesday night, Gross flew here Thursday and found himself in a cab riding through the middle of the violence in South-Central Los Angeles.

Baseball arbitrator Richard Casher ruled in favor of the Cincinnati Reds today, awarding pitcher Randy Myers $875,000 for the 1990 baseball season, the Reds said. Myers, who was paid $300,000 last season, had sought $1.1 million. Casher heard both sides submit their figures and arguments Tuesday in New York. Myers' case was based on his performance last season with the New York Mets, which included a 7-4 record, 2.35 earned run average and 24 saves.

Kip Gross lowered his spring earned-run average to 2.08 Saturday, but it may not help his chances of making the team because, on the same field, Jay Howell was raising expectations. Shortly before Gross worked out of a bases-loaded, none-out jam to set up the Dodgers' 7-4 victory over the Atlanta Braves, Howell threw well enough to make the Dodgers say he could be ready in the first few days of this season.

Fred Claire, the Dodgers' vice president, was not amused by the players' first-day prank of burning equipment bags from the Cincinnati Reds and San Francisco Giants. The bags belonged to Kip Gross and Dave Anderson, who joined the Dodgers this winter. "I don't mind competitive fires, but if I was to rewind the tape of our first days in camp, I would delete that portion," Claire said in Vero Beach, Fla. "I was a little disappointed that it took place. It was all meant in a fun spirit, but. . . .

Todd Benzinger is one Dodger who came to Cincinnati this week expecting to face the same kind of contender he saw in Atlanta. What he found, he said, is a team that could be wilting under the heat administered by Manager Lou Piniella. "The Reds look flat, like they are in the same position we are in," Benzinger said. "During times like these, having Lou there doesn't help much, either."
