The New York Mets broke up their 1986 World Series champions a little more Friday when they dealt shortstop Rafael Santana to the New York Yankees, a few hours after trading away relief pitcher Jesse Orosco. The deal that sent Santana to the Yankees was the first between the two intracity rivals to involve a major league player. Four minor league players were also included in the deal. Santana, 29, batted .255 last season, hitting 5 home runs and driving in 44 runs.

The Atlanta Braves, a team not known for its knowledge of ornithology, say the bird Dion James killed with a fly ball was a dove and not a pigeon. In the third inning of the Atlanta Braves' 12-4 victory Sunday over the New York Mets, James led off with what should have been a routine fly to left field. New York's Kevin McReynolds began drifting under the ball but stopped when it collided with the bird. By the time McReynolds retrieved the ball, James stood at second with a double.

Don Mattingly: The New York Yankees' first baseman failed to hit a home run in his first 76 at-bats. No surprise. Mattingly is a career .283 hitter in April, a .336 hitter over the other months. He has hit only 4 of his 123 career home runs in April. "I don't know why that is," Mattingly said. "Timing, I guess. I'm just a little off right now, that's all. The month's not over yet. There's still time to do some damage."

Danny Heep scored from second base on a throwing error by Howard Johnson in the 16th inning Sunday, allowing the Dodgers to snap a nine-game losing streak with a 3-2 victory over the New York Mets. Heep led off with a walk off Randy Myers (2-5). After Dave Anderson sacrificed, Mike Devereaux grounded to third baseman Johnson, who backhanded the ball but threw past first baseman Keith Hernandez. Tim Belcher, who pitched two innings in his major-league debut, recorded the victory.

The list, compiled through Saturday, includes players with at least 300 at-bats in a season and have played more than one season.

Mookie Wilson didn't know what it was--but he knew where it went. "It was a slow pitch, I'm not sure exactly what," Wilson said Sunday after he led off the 14th inning with a home run to break a 3-3 tie and give the New York Mets a 4-3 victory over the Dodgers. "I just look for the ball. When I see it, I try to hit it." The triumph enabled the Mets to creep within a half-game of the Cardinals in the NL East. New York and St. Louis begin a three-game series Tuesday night at Shea Stadium.
