Two or three times a day now, Expo second baseman Vance Law calls his 4-year-old daughter, Natalie, back home in Provo, Utah. Perhaps on his next call, Law will tell his daughter of the home run he hit off Dodger pitcher Bob Welch with two out in the ninth inning Tuesday night, giving Montreal a 1-0 win before a crowd of 9,201 in Olympic Stadium. But mostly, Law, the father of three, will be happy just to hear the sound of his little girl's voice.

Former major leaguer Larry Parrish hit a home run to help the Hanshin Tigers to a 3-2 victory over the Central League's defending champion Yomiuri Giants today. Parrish played last season for the Yakult Swallows and won the league's home run title with 42. At Tokyo's Jingu Stadium, a grand slam homer by former Chicago Cub Vance Law in the fifth inning led the Chunichi Dragons to a 6-5 victory over the Swallows. It was Law's second homer this season.

Jack Clark, who earlier this week was robbed of two home runs on outstanding catches by Eric Davis in Cincinnati, hit a two-run homer deep into the left-center-field bleachers in the first inning Thursday to spark the St. Louis Cardinals to a 3-1 victory over the Cubs at Chicago. Clark's homer, on a 3-and-2 pitch with two out, helped make a loser of Greg Maddux (4-5) and a winner of Danny Cox (6-2). The latter needed eighth-inning help from Todd Worrell, who picked up his 12th save.

Orel Hershiser, 6-0 as a starter this season, pitched the 14th to get his first save of the season and fifth of his career. The Cubs had tied the score 5-5 in the ninth with a run off reliever Jesse Orosco.

Historians have branded as myth stories that Abner Doubleday invented baseball, although a specially formed committee in 1907 determined that Doubleday, a Civil War general, founded the game in Cooperstown, N.Y., in 1839. The committee arrived at its conclusion largely on the testimony of one Albert Graves, a former resident of Cooperstown who served under Doubleday in the Civil War.

The Padres must have played pretty well Wednesday night because several Montreal Canadians came by afterward and plopped down the Stanley Cup. "Thanks for bringing it to me, guys!" Tim Flannery bellowed. On a night that the Canadians were honored here at Olympic Stadium as champions of the hockey world, it was the Expos who seemed to be playing on ice.
