ATLANTA (AP) _ A Chicago newspaper reporter was robbed in a parking lot near Turner Field after Game 1 of the NL playoffs between the Cubs and Braves.

Mike Kiley, a baseball writer for the Chicago Sun-Times, was walking to his car in a private lot less than a block from the stadium's main entrance when the robbery occurred about 9 p.m. Wednesday.

Kiley, who had covered Atlanta's 7-1 victory, said the robber pulled a pistol and said, ``Give me your wallet right now or I'm going to shoot you.''

No arrests were made. Kiley said he decided not to file a report when Atlanta police told him he couldn't file it by telephone and would have to come to a precinct.

Kiley said the bandit got away with about $150, as well as credit cards, a driver's license and other personal items.

Braves president Stan Kasten said he was told of the incident shortly before the start of Game 2 Thursday night.

``I don't know anything about it, but I will follow up later tonight or tomorrow,'' he said.

Reporters who covered the Braves during the regular season are allowed to use a fenced media lot next to the stadium. Other members of the media park in private lots.
