The Dodgers have been playing well lately, and they have increased their lead over their National League West challengers behind excellent pitching. Nevertheless, they felt compelled Tuesday to make another trade for a pitcher who they hope will help them stay successful into October. So, after Orel Hershiser notched his 18th victory with a 4-2 win over the Montreal Expos, the Dodgers announced that they had acquired left-handed middle reliever Ricky Horton from the Chicago White Sox.

They were just six pitches. A few curveballs, a few fastballs. But in the eighth inning Wednesday night, with San Diego Padre reliever Mark Davis pitching and the Dodgers attempting the hitting, they were six pitches that illustrated a season. With the bases loaded and one out and the Dodgers trailing by a run, Dodger pinch-hitters Mickey Hatcher and Mariano Duncan stared at, and hacked at, and ultimately struck out on the six pitches as the Dodgers lost, 2-1, in front of 33,708 at Dodger Stadium.

Was putting Kirk Gibson in the leadoff role an inspired move? Only time will tell. For the present, however, the Dodgers can't help but be inspired by it. In joining with Willie Randolph to form a team within a team at the top of the lineup, Gibson provided a catalytic punch Monday night as the Dodgers made it two in a row over the Cincinnati Reds and salvaged a split of the four-game series, 9-2. A Dodger Stadium crowd of 28,161 saw...

For this sermon on the mound, we bring you the Irreverend Rick Dempsey, the Dodger catcher whose shin guards may be older than the Dead Sea Scrolls but whose perspective goes far beyond the bars that cross his mask. On this occasion, fewer than five weeks before the start of the regular season, Dempsey offered a meditation that, if titled, would go something like this: "Faith, Hope, Orel and Fernando, but the Greatest of These is Orel."

Reviving memories of last year's contract hassle with the Angels, first baseman Wally Joyner filed for salary arbitration Tuesday. Attorney Barry Axelrod said that he has been unable to generate meaningful discussions with Angel General Manager Mike Port, creating a situation similar to last winter, when Joyner eventually staged a spring training holdout before agreeing to the Angels' long-standing offer of $340,000.

Randy Hendricks, the agent for Dodger shortstop Alfredo Griffin, said Friday that Griffin has decided to sign a contract he agreed to in November. Griffin had been considering a grievance procedure because he forfeited his rights to free agency by agreeing to contract terms before the Dodgers' deadline for signing their eligible free agents. The club then lifted the deadline to continue negotiations with Steve Sax and Mike Marshall.

It was almost six weeks ago that the Houston Astros started the hassle over doctored bats when they questioned the legality of one used by New York's Howard Johnson, the National League's most surprising home run hitter. Johnson was exonerated, but the ensuing controversy brought about a rash of bat confiscations. Ironically, the first illegal bat uncovered belonged to a Houston Astro.
