How do you spell relief ? Baseball player Tracy Jones spells it t-r-a-d-e . The former Loyola Marymount University star was swapped from the Cincinnati Reds to the Montreal Expos during the All-Star break, and the outfielder who once professed undying fealty to Pete Rose told the press: "Even if (Expos manager) Buck Rodgers wants to come over every day and kick me in the mouth, it's got to be a better situation."

Last year, Sean Scott and John Hyden reached the final of the Assn. of Volleyball Professionals' last event before it ran out of money and shut down its tour. They lost, and it stung more so than usual. "I remember going, 'If this was my last beach volleyball event, it would've been nice to go out with a win,' " Scott said. But entering this year, the duo came up with a scheme. "We knew to make a living at this sport in a transition year, we've got to win every tournament," Hyden said.

Cincinnati is becoming an eerie place to play baseball these days. Tuesday, Tracy Jones of the Reds stood at home plate as a pinch-hitter against the San Diego Padres with the score tied and the bases loaded in the ninth inning. San Diego reliever Lance McCullers walked Jones to force in the winning run, giving the Reds a 4-3 victory at Riverfront Stadium. Up comes Jones again as a pinch-hitter against the Padres Thursday, with the score tied and the bases loaded in the 10th inning.

As baseball brawls go, this is almost sure to be a costly one. There were no injuries after Saturday night's battle between the Seattle Mariners and Milwaukee Brewers, in which eight players were ejected, but fines from the American League this week are expected to be sizable. And there could even be a few suspensions. The brawl occurred in the eighth inning when, with the Mariners ahead, 6-2, the Brewers' Bob Sebra intentionally hit Tracy Jones with a pitch.

The manager wanted to prove his point, so he cupped his hands around his mouth and hollered from the dugout: "Hey, Tracy Jones!" In the sunshine of Anaheim Stadium, Tracy Jones smiled and waved as he trotted by, but he did not say a word. "See, I told you he doesn't say much to me. He's real quiet," said Detroit Tigers manager Sparky Anderson, with a smile of his own. "Besides, I always judge a person by how they are with me, not how they are with someone else. That's not fair.

On Tuesday night, when Padre reliever Lance McCullers walked Cincinnati's Tracy Jones with the bases loaded to force in the winning run, everybody in the Padre clubhouse chalked it up to just one more thing on this infernal trip that they might never see again. Everybody was wrong. Same trip, two days later, they saw it again.

The Cincinnati Reds got a shot in the arm Thursday while the Dodgers were given a swift kick, both courtesy of a couple of Southern California products. Call it a local anesthetic. For the Dodgers, it'll only hurt when they think about it. Tracy Jones, the 26-year-old outfielder from Leuzinger High School in Lawndale and Loyola Marymount, and Kurt Stillwell, the 22-year-old infielder from Thousand Oaks High, roommates and best friends on the Reds, did in the home team.
