Braves: Pitcher Pedro Borbon underwent tests on his sore shoulder, a day after being placed on the disabled list. Borbon has been bothered by rotator cuff problems and was to undergo magnetic resonance imaging tests.

Dodgers: Mike Piazza, still looking for his first extra-base hit after 15 singles, brought the crowd of 35,570 to its feet in the first inning with a deep drive to the warning track in right. Richard Justice turned the wrong way on the ball before recovering in time to backhand it against the wall.

Giants: Matt Williams and Shawon Dunston have hit safely in all eight games this season. . . . Giants leadoff hitters had hit safely to open each of the last five games until Dunston grounded out to start yesterday's game.

Mets: Todd Hundley has reached base in 12 of his past 20 plate appearances, including five walks, four singles, a double and two homers. . . . Bernard Gilkey has hit safely in his first seven games as a Met (12-for-31).

Reds: Reliever Johnny Ruffin, who spent the night in jail on misdemeanor traffic charges, relieved John Smiley in the sixth and retired four batters without giving up a hit or a walk. . . . Reliever Chuck McElroy will start for Triple-A Indianapolis tomorrow.
