CINCINNATI Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips spent Thursday morning in Family Court battling one of his baby mamas, a local woman with whom he has a 4-year-old daughter. He has another child with a woman in Buffalo. Phillips, who was selected as a reserve in tomorrow's MLB All-Star Game, and Danielle Daluisio had a casual relationship in 2006 that resulted in a daughter, Micole Malia Phillips . Phillips has seen the child a total of five days in four years according to Daluisio's lawyer, Lynne Gold-Bikin , chairwoman of Weber Gallagher's family-law division.

What members of the Cincinnati Reds were saying after being no-hit by Roy Halladay: "In the three at-bats I had, I might have had one pitch to hit and I fouled it back. " - Drew Stubbs "In my last at-bat, I was just up there hacking - I looked up on the board and he's got like 21 or 22 balls in the eighth inning - and that didn't work for me, either. " - Jonny Gomes "I was taking too big of swings, honestly. When it got to 3-2 and he threw that sinker down, I was just able to lay off it. " - Jay Bruce, whose fifth-inning walk accounted for the Reds' only baserunner.

The first lineup Charlie Manuel wrote down for Game 1 of the NL division series did not have Jimmy Rollins leading off. But that was before Placido Polanco came to the Phillies' manager Wednesday morning and told him he could not swing a bat because of a bad back. So Manuel made a familiar move. "When I took Polanco out, of course, I moved Jimmy up in the leadoff hole," Manuel said. Wilson Valdez replaced Polanco at third. "I thought he was going to play," Valdez said before the game of Polanco, who believed late Wednesday that he would be available to practice Thursday and play riday.

THE PLAY: The Reds led, 4-3, but the Phillies had two on and one out when Jimmy Rollins hit a soft liner to right. Jay Bruce misplayed the ball and all heck broke loose. Second baseman Brandon Phillips compounded the error by dropping the subsequent relay throw, and both runners scored to give the Phillies a lead they would never surrender. THE SETUP: Reds rookie fireballer Aroldis Chapman started the inning by grazing Chase Utley with a pitch before striking out Ryan Howard on a 101-mph fastball.

Until the Reds really became Dusty Baker's team, Roy Oswalt owned them. Oswalt was 21-1 with a 2.35 earned run average in 30 appearances against the Reds until the middle of the 2009 season. He was an Astro, and the Reds were NL Central rivals, so they saw him a lot and they couldn't do anything with him. Baker took over as manager in 2008. The first four times the Reds faced Oswalt with Baker as manager, Oswalt went 3-0 and surrendered only six runs. In four starts since then, Oswalt is 0-2 with a 6.55 ERA. "We have a different team," Baker explained.

ROY OSWALT didn't expect to throw a no-hitter, which is good considering that Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips hit the second pitch he threw over the fence in left. Pitchers like it when batters hit the ball at someone. Phillips hit it at someone who had paid for his seat. Oswalt did hope to hold the Reds down and pitch deep into the game. Didn't get that, either. Lasted just five innings, gave up a couple homers, four runs, three earned. Which would be a little disappointing if the Phillies hadn't rallied for a 7-4 win to take a commanding lead of two games-to-none in their best-of-five National League Division Series against the Reds.

For the first time this season, there was nothing at stake for the NL West champion Los Angeles Dodgers. So Joe Torre, maintaining a tradition he used during his time with the Yankees, let backup catcher Brad Ausmus manage the team. Ausmus' day was a success. Vicente Padilla (4-0) struck out 10 in five innings, and the Dodgers finished the regular season yesterday with a 5-3 victory over the visiting, wild-card Colorado Rockies.

Are the Cubs buried yet? The Chicago Cubs have lost seven straight and have scored only five runs in their last six games. While manager Lou Piniella offered the requisite "we'll get it back," disclaimer, his next comment to the Chicago Tribune indicated some real concern. "Do we get buried before we find it?" Piniella asked. "That's the scary part of the equation. " And that was before yesterday's 7-2 loss to San Diego. K-Rod returns Mets closer Francisco Rodriguez was taken from the clubhouse in agony Saturday night, with back spasms so painful his legs locked up. Medical personnel took him to an ambulance on a stretcher.

Federal agents tried to pressure former Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Jason Grimsley into wearing a listening device in an effort to collect incriminating evidence against San Francisco Giants slugger Barry Bonds, the Arizona Republic reported. "It was a specific effort to target Bonds," attorney Edward F. Novak told the newspaper for yesterday's editions. "We were told that Jason's cooperation was necessary to their case. " Novak said agents asked whether Grimsley knew any of Bonds' teammates who could reveal anything about the Giants' slugger.

Cincinnati seems intent on breaking the mold for baseball's small-city teams. Owner Bob Castellini has concluded the only way to make the Reds a consistent contender is to spend to keep the team together rather than losing players through free agency. "You do that to build a franchise and a foundation for years to come," Castellini said. "So I don't [expect] to continue to have all these huge contracts. But you build your franchise on the people that are in that dugout and on that field.

CINCINNATI - A young family walked out of the elevator and onto the field level at Great American Ball Park late last night, about a half-hour after the game. A boy held a baseball in his hand. "Which one is that?" a stadium security guard asked in the hallway that leads to the Reds' home clubhouse. "The third one!" the boy said triumphantly, raising the souvenir with one hand and high-fiving the guard with the other. He was off to deliver the ball to the hero of the night.

Aaron Harang is pitching for his eighth major-league team, so the Phillies' No. 2 starter has faced more than his share of former teammates. But Cincinnati, the club he opposed Thursday night at Citizens Bank Park, is the team with which he spent the prime of his career. Harang, who last pitched for the Reds in 2010, experienced success against Cincinnati in the past. He did not have any in this series finale, as he endured his worst start of an otherwise great season in the Phillies' 6-4 loss.

IT'S KNOWN as "The Buster Posey Rule. " And, though it's not the 2010 NLCS anymore, Buster Posey is still a thorn in the side of the Phillies. Posey, of course, was drilled at the plate by a baserunner in a May 2011 game and had his leg shattered. So the rule, which debuted last season, is appropriately named. Rule 7.13, which prohibits a catcher from blocking the plate unless he has possession of the ball, also doesn't allow a runner to deviate from his pathway to initiate contact with an opposing catcher.

SOMETIMES IT'S funny the way losing streaks are broken. Last night was certainly that, unless you're a member of the Cincinnati faithful. The weather was abnormal for this time of year. It was cold, wet and blustery. It felt more April than June. And the way the Phillies won was equally weird. The Phillies tallied three runs against the Reds that they probably shouldn't have in helping to snap a seasonlong, seven-game losing streak, winning, 5-4, in front of an announced crowd of 20,209.

TONY CINGRANI profiles as the kind of pitcher who often gives the Phillies' lineup fits. Lefthanded. Funky delivery. Or, as Ryne Sandberg put it yesterday afternoon, "Throws from his shirt-sleeve. " So when Cliff Lee took a half inning to find his rhythm and the Reds made enough of the opportunity to push two runs home, you might have felt like you were about to witness a game that you had seen many times before. Reality, however, had something else in store yesterday at Citizens Bank Park.

Cliff Lee pitched and hit well enough to earn a win. He had to settle for being picked up by his teammates. Eighth-inning RBIs by Domonic Brown and Carlos Ruiz broke the tie and led the Phillies to a 5-3 win over the Cincinnati Reds on Friday at Citizens Bank Park. "A comeback win like this means a lot and shows the character of this team," Brown said. With the score tied at 3-3, Michael Young drew a one-out walk in the Phillies eighth. Ryan Howard, of all players, then reached base on a check-swinging bunt that reliever Sean Marshall couldn't handle.

CINCINNATI - For 2 hours and 26 minutes Monday, the Phillies and Reds played sublime baseball. They exchanged dominant starting pitching, thrilling hits and breathtaking defensive plays. A 4-2 Reds victory ended when Aroldis Chapman fired a 100-m.p.h. fastball past Ryan Howard, and everyone could have used a lengthier distraction. Ben Revere wrote "PRAY For Boston" on a piece of tape, affixed it to the webbing of his glove, and made one of the most incredible catches in recent memory.

JOHNNY CUETO ordered three runs. His Cincinnati teammates dutifully delivered. The Reds pitcher came off the mound after the sixth inning of his start Sunday against the visiting Washington Nationals with the score tied, 3-all. "I said, 'I want three runs here. Do it for me,"' Cueto said. Todd Frazier confirmed Cueto's order. "I was screaming with him," the Cincinnati third baseman said. "He was saying it in Spanish, but we understood. " Boy, did they. The Reds scored three runs off Washington ace Stephen Strasburg on their way to a 6-3 win in what started out as a highly anticipated matchup of young aces.

SAN FRANCISCO - Brandon Phillips still sees the highlights of his weak grounder for the final out in Roy Halladay's no-hitter of the Cincinnati Reds in an embarrassing playoff opener two years ago. Now, Phillips and the Reds have their own memorable winning playoff moment. After losing their ace, no less. Sam LeCure, Mat Latos and three other pitchers shut down San Francisco after Johnny Cueto went out in the first inning with back spasms, and Cincinnati was powered by home runs from Phillips and Jay Bruce to beat the Giants, 5-2, in Game 1 of the NL division series Saturday night.
