Cincinnati outfielder Juan Encarnacion was hit in the right temple by a thrown ball during batting practice yesterday and scratched from the starting lineup. Encarnacion slumped to one knee after getting struck by a throw from second baseman Todd Walker before the game in Anaheim and was surrounded by teammates, manager Bob Boone, and general manager Jim Bowden. Encarnacion is listed as day-to-day. He left the field under his own power. Despite a 2-for-22 slump, Encarnacion is hitting .260 in 57 games with 38 RBIs and has 11 home runs, tying him with Adam Dunn for the team lead.

The Cincinnati Reds made a trade to clear room for their top prospect yesterday, sending outfielder Alex Ochoa to the Colorado Rockies for second baseman Todd Walker and a minor-leaguer. The deal between last-place teams gave the Rockies another versatile outfielder and gave the Reds a chance to bring up Adam Dunn, their most highly regarded prospect in years. Dunn, a 21-year-old outfielder who chose baseball over playing quarterback at Texas, hit .334 with 32 homers and 84 RBIs in 94 games this year at double-A Chattanooga and triple-A Louisville.

After seven weeks on the disabled list, Ken Griffey Jr. was back in center field for the Cincinnati Reds last night. Griffey, who tore a tendon in his right knee April 7, started and batted third against the Atlanta Braves. He hit .273 with one home run and three RBIs in the seven games before the injury. "It's been tough," he said before the game. "The only thing I really know is baseball and playing baseball. " The plan for now is for Griffey to play every other day to slowly work himself back into game shape.

Brian Schneider came up with the big hit just when the Montreal Expos needed it most. Schneider hit a tiebreaking homer on a full count in the eighth inning off reliever John Grabow (0-3), and the Montreal Expos defeated the Pittsburgh Pirates, 2-1, last night in San Juan, Puerto Rico. "I was not trying to hit a home run," Schneider said. "I was trying to stay alive and just get on base. " Schneider's ninth homer made a winner of Luis Ayala (1-6), who replaced Tony Armas Jr. in the eighth.

The reaction of fans was much different for Barry Bonds in front of the home crowd. Bonds received a standing ovation when he stepped to the plate for the first time yesterday in the San Francisco Giants' 6-4 win over the Atlanta Braves. Bonds saw all of eight pitches to hit, and 14 total. He drew his first two intentional walks of the season, struck out and grounded weakly to first. After the game, he made his way through the locker room to the trainer's table, saying, "Go get iced up. " He didn't address close to 50 media members at his locker.

Oswalt returned from the 15-day disabled list to get his first win since May 3 and the visiting Houston Astros collected 11 hits off Greg Maddux. Oswalt (6-3), who'd been out with a strained back and hadn't pitched since May 29, allowed eight hits and three runs in six innings.

Pedro Martinez blew 'em away. Carlos Beltran knocked 'em in. Everything was going exactly according to plan for the new-look Mets - until Adam Dunn exposed the one area they overlooked.

Adam Dunn later added a pinch three-run homer, his major league-leading 17th, as the Reds won for the 11th time in 15 games. By dropping the first two games of the series, the Braves lost back-to-back games for the first time since April 11-12.

The wind was blowing at nearly 40 mph, making every fly ball an adventure for fielders or a home run. Rain increased steadily and made the grass slippery and the infield muddy. Another wild weather day at Wrigley Field in Chicago before yesterday's game between St. Louis and the Cubs was postponed by rain in the top of the fifth inning. It wiped out 20 runs and seven homers, and spared Cubs starter Matt Clement the worst outing of his career. The game was postponed after a 64-minute delay with the Cardinals leading, 11-9.

Johnny Almaraz did not plan on taking off his baseball uniform and putting on a scout's hat in his early 20s. No, the plan was to pitch in the big leagues and, if that did not work out, he was going to return to Southwest Texas State and get his degree in health administration. Plan A, as it turned out, was stripped from Almaraz's control in his second minor-league season with the Cincinnati Reds, who had selected the righthanded pitcher in the 14th round of the 1988 draft. The Texas native pitched 14 times for Billings, Mont., in his rookie minor-league season and went 5-5 with a 5.04 ERA. He never pitched again.

BUSTER POSEY and Madison Bumgarner. Matt Adams and Trevor Rosenthal. Eric Hosmer and Yordano Ventura. Manny Machado and Zach Britton. The first two already have World Series rings with San Francisco, the second two helped lead a new wave of Cardinals into another World Series appearance 12 months ago, and the last four are all key contributors to the rousing successes in Kansas City and Baltimore this season. While 26 of baseball's 30 teams have hit the road, those eight players are still playing in the postseason.

OAKLAND - The A's tried their hardest to continue their epic collapse but, in the end, they were no match for the Phillies, who left the O.co Coliseum as 8-6 losers yesterday thanks to a two-run, walkoff home run by Josh Donaldson off Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez in the 10th inning. One day after the Phillies seized a 3-0 victory, A.J. Burnett walked six batters and hit two more with pitches in a sloppy performance by both teams. The A's are atop the wild-card standings, by one-half game over Kansas City and by two games over Seattle.

ANOTHER DAY, another extra-inning game between the Phillies and the White Sox, and another walkoff victory for the Phils. Following 24 innings of baseball combined in a Saturday day-night doubleheader and the gut-wrenching news that centerfielder Ben Revere was placed on the disabled list yesterday, the Phillies needed somebody to step up. Revere's replacement, John Mayberry Jr., did so in the bottom of the 10th. With the bases loaded and two outs, Mayberry singled up the middle to score Chase Utley, who reached on a leadoff double, giving the Phillies a 4-3 victory over Chicago.

It set off one of the more legendary baseball brouhahas, featuring Ryan, then a 46-year-old sure Hall of Famer in his last season, wrapping Ventura, then 26, in a chokehold under his left arm while delivering vigorous right-hand hammers to the youngster's noggin. How legendary is the fight? Well, a video of the battle is regularly shown on the jumbo screen at the Ballpark at Arlington to fire up the crowd.

Jonny Gomes homered in his first three at-bats to back Bronson Arroyo's two-hitter and the Cincinnati Reds beat the visiting Washington Nationals 7-0 last night. Gomes hit two-run homers in the second and fourth innings and added a solo shot in the sixth to help the Reds take a 7-0 lead. He struck out in the eighth inning. It was the second time in Gomes' career that he has hit three homers. The first was on July 30, 2005, against Kansas City.
