It took away the game from WTBS and moved it from night to day. But it forgot to check with the weatherman. An afternoon shower forced the game to be delayed and CBS had to shift to Toronto's 6-0 victory over Oakland. "It was a combination of network and local commitments," producer Ed Goren said.

Ron Gant's bases-loaded single off the left-field fence with two outs in the 11th inning drove in the winning run that put the Braves back in first place in the NL West with a 3-2 victory over Los Angeles. They won it against Roger McDowell (8-9), the seventh Dodgers pitcher. Pinch hitter Jerry Willard drew a leadoff walk in the 11th and was replaced by pinch runner Keith Mitchell. Terry Pendleton dumped a bloop double to left, and David Justice was walked intentionally, loading the bases before Gant's hit scored Mitchell with the winner. It was Atlanta's eighth victory in nine games, and only its fifth win in 14 meetings with the Dodgers this season.

"This is one possibility. It will be a reality if it will raise more money. We are studying it and will continue studying it." Here, then,' is what Einhorn and his colleagues are studying: Once the expansion clubs arrive, giving each league 14 teams, Giles would like to split the American and mtional Leagues into three geo Blue Jays add Parker for September stretch THE ASSOCIATED PRESS TORONTO Dave Parker, cut by California last week after losing his stroke at age 40, signed Saturday with the Toronto Blue Jays for the final three weeks of the season. Parker will not be eligible for the postseason if the Blue Jays make it that far. cc oame' w,a? atting onIy -232 11 home runs and 56 RBIs in 119 games for the Angels. "He's intimidating and with him sitting on the bench, the manager on the other side may chance his pitching strategy," said GM Pat GiUick. The 6-foot-5 Parker is a veteran of almost 18 major-league seasons, five league championship series and three World Series. Asked how Parker will be used, Gillick said: "That's up to (interim manager) Gene (Tenace)." Parker has 339 career homers and 1,490 RBI with five different clubs - Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Oakland, Milwaukee and Oakland. The seven-time All-Star hit a pair of homers and drove in three runs for Oakland when the As beat the Blue Jays in the 1989 AL championship series. CRAIG RELEASED: Giants manager Roger Craig was resting comfortably Saturday after undergoing an angioplasty Friday to relieve blockage in his coronary arteries, team officials said.- Craig was released from Stanford Hospital Saturday afternoon for recuperation at home. the graphically sound divisions cast, west and Central. Once that is complete could be as soon as 1993. on which Knight News Service PHILADELPHIA Phillies owner Bill Giles' vision of baseball's future may startle you. Giles says major-league baseball could look radically different by 1994. He says there is a 50-50 chance that 1994 baseball will feature: Three-division leagues; Expanded playoffs with one wild-card team; Interleague play. It sounds a little crazy, especially to baseball purists, but Giles is being received warmly by owners looking for ways to increase baseball's appeal for fans and television. "Most people I talk to like the idea," said Giles, who brought copies of his detailed plan to the owners' quarterly meeting here last week. "My own opinion is that this is all going to happen sometime within the next five years." Revolutionary? Yes. Impossible? No. Commissioner Fay Vincent says Giles' 50-50 odds are "not unreason- fans like an expanded playoff, we have to take a serious look at it. I think it's kind of interesting." Giles would also like to begin interleague play Yankees vs. Mets, for example even though the suggestion has been voted down in the past because it dilutes the importance of the World Series. Still, Giles thinks that with proper restraint perhaps having each AL Central team playing each NL Central once a year interleague games could be a huge financial windfall via pay-for-view television. Baseball's resistance to change is the obvious obstacle. Three-fourths of the owners must approve most of these changes unanimous approval is required for massive divisional changes and it wouldn't take many purists to block it. But Giles has yet to meet any of them. "This will create more interest in the game, which usually means more money," he said. "Nobody I've talked to has objected to this. It will be looked at in a serious way soon." studying ones blueprint. Baseball is traditionally slow to change, and especially hesitant to proposals this radical, but owners at these meetings say they are ready to consider significant restructuring of America's pastime. "Realignment should be discussed and accomplished," San Francisco owner Bob Lurie said. "Things aren't set up correctly right now. I'm sure there are still some hard-line romantics out there, but this has merit no matter who you are." Giles' plan is still preliminary and is being discussed only informally here. It has not come up for a vote, and probably won't until after baseball's television committee meets in November and decides whether to recommend it. Those hedges aside, though, massive changes in baseball are closer to happening than ever before. Baseball's lucrative television contract with CBS and ESPN will expire at the end of 1993, and baseball is looking for innovative ways to appeal to TV, which has suffered severe losses on the existing contract. "There is an economic crunch, and trial basis the three division winners would go to the playoffs. The second-place team with the best overall record would be the wild card, in many cases creating pennant fever in cities that would have also-rans under current circumstances. Only in the 1981 strike season has baseball had more than two playoff winners in either division. Baseball is the only major team sport that doesn't send its second-place teams to the postseason.
