The father's lower back hurt him worse than he would ever admit. But the young man trying to catch ground balls on this rocky field was his son. And so he would help. "Put your glove like this," Julian Javier shouted in Spanish. "Move your hands like this." The son, headstrong as always, wants to handle this latest challenge alone. But the older man offering to help him was his father. And so he would listen. "OK, Poppy," Stan Javier said. "I will try it this way."

Stan Javier had a two-run, pinch-hit home run in the sixth inning Tuesday night and the San Francisco Giants defeated Seattle, 4-3, the Mariners' first loss in five interleague games. Ken Griffey Jr. and Barry Bonds played to a virtual draw in their ballyhooed matchup, each singling and scoring a run in the first regular-season game between the Giants and Mariners. The crowd of 40,024 was the Giants' largest of the season since opening day.

Two members of that celebrated Dodger outfield were hard at work Saturday in a 3-2 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies. Stan Javier tied the game with a run-scoring single in the fourth inning, and Chris Gwynn clinched it with an RBI double while pinch-hitting in the eighth. Darryl who? OK, so fans won't be asking that question any time soon, but they are becoming aware that there is more to the Dodgers--and to winning--than million-dollar bats.

After spending two seasons hoping for a trade, Stan Javier got his wish Thursday when the Dodgers traded him to the visiting Philadelphia Phillies for minor league pitcher Steve Searcy and a player to be named. Javier walked into the Dodger clubhouse as the team's sixth outfielder and soon after was down the hall being fitted for a Phillie uniform. He was penciled into the lineup as their starting center fielder and leadoff hitter. "I thought I had seen everything," Javier said.

When the Dodgers acquired Stan Javier from the Oakland Athletics for second basemen Willie Randolph, it meant more than adding a new outfielder to the L.A. picture. The move allowed Juan Samuel to shift to second base, where he would prefer to play, and set up some question marks for the Dodger outfield, which Kirk Gibson may or may not eventually answer. The deal was put together Saturday night, but not officially announced until 1:25 a.m. EDT on Sunday.

With Darryl Strawberry scheduled to return to the Dodgers' lineup Wednesday in San Diego against the Padres, the clubhouse could have two unhappy outfielders. Stan Javier, despite hitting .353 in his last nine starts, will no longer start against left-handed pitching. And Chris Gwynn, despite eight hits in his last 18 at-bats, will not start against right-handers.

Pitcher Tim Crews, outfielder Stan Javier and third baseman Jeff Hamilton on Wednesday agreed to terms with the Dodgers for 1991 contracts. All three players were eligible for arbitration. Terms were not announced. Crews, a right-handed reliever, was 4-5 with a 2.77 earned-run average in 1990. He appeared in a team-high 66 games. He earned $215,000 in 1990 and had been asking for $790,000 in arbitration in 1991. The Dodgers had offered $550,000. The switch-hitting Javier batted .

Stan Javier said he will not cause trouble, especially during a time when his team desperately needs outfielders. But with only four starts and a team-low 45 at-bats after 56 games, look for a disconsolate Javier to ask for a trade with the return of Eric Davis or Darryl Strawberry. "I don't know what to say," Javier said Friday "I am not selfish, so I will not complain. But this has been very hard for me. I have gone from the best year of my career to back to where I started."

Stan Javier singled home Jose Canseco with two out in the 13th inning Thursday night at Chicago, and the Oakland Athletics added two unearned runs for a 6-3 victory over the Chicago White Sox. With one out, Canseco and Dave Parker singled off reliever Bill Long (0-1). Mark McGwire walked on four pitches to load the bases, and pinch-hitter Dave Henderson struck out, before Javier lined his game-winning hit to left field.
