The Reds' Homer Bailey has some big acts to follow when he takes the mound Tuesday with a chance to finish an NL division-series sweep of the San Francisco Giants in Cincinnati. The first is his own no-hitter on Sept. 28, a gem twirled against Pittsburgh, the last time he was on the hill at Great American Ball Park. The second is teammate Bronson Arroyo's masterpiece on Sunday night, in which Arroyo retired the first 14 batters before giving up a two-out single to Brandon Belt in the fifth.

Cheater? Not him Bronson Arroyo of the Cincinnati Reds has denied accusations by the St. Louis Cardinals that he used pine tar to doctor the baseball and get a better grip on pitches. St. Louis manager Tony La Russa and pitching coach Dave Duncan both told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch in yesterday's editions that the stain on the bill of Arroyo's cap was pine tar that helped him better grip the ball during a 6-1 Reds victory Wednesday. "It [the stain] is from playing in every other park where there's so much mud on the balls that black stuff comes off on your fingers every time," Arroyo said.

Bronson Arroyo (8-7) extended his latest surge by pitching eight innings last night, and the Cincinnati Reds defeated the visiting New York Mets, 5-2, and snapped their 10-game winning streak. The Mets' amazing run ended one win shy of the franchise record. The Reds scored four times in the fifth off John Maine (8-7) despite getting only two balls out of the infield. The Reds loaded the bases on Paul Bako's single, Jay Bruce's walk and Jeff Keppinger's infield single with two outs.

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. He is the sixth player to hit three homers in a game this season; Pittsburgh's Andrew McCutchen was the last on Aug. 1. "This one's a lot more emotional for me," said Gomes, who opened the season in Triple A and did not join the Reds until May 22. "That was one of the best performances I've seen in a long time," Reds manager Dusty Baker said.

Ken Griffey Jr.'s 537th career homer got upstaged by Bronson Arroyo's first. Arroyo got the loudest and longest ovations yesterday - and a respectful bow from Griffey - in a successful Cincinnati debut. He pitched into the seventh inning and hit his first career homer in his first at-bat, leading the Reds to an 8-6 victory yesterday over the visiting Chicago Cubs. "I'll take that 50 times over," Arroyo said. His do-it-all debut overshadowed a big moment for Griffey, who moved ahead of two Yankees with his first homer of the season.

Everything is going right for Bronson Arroyo and the Cincinnati Reds these days. And all is amiss for the Washington Nationals. Arroyo threw eight innings of one-hit ball, and visiting Cincinnati jumped out to an early lead, just as it did all series, for a 5-0 victory over Washington yesterday that completed a three-game sweep. Arroyo improved to 4-0 with a 2.34 ERA in five starts, allowing only Ryan Zimmerman's single to right-center with two outs in the fourth. The righthander left after 119 pitches - "I was running out of juice," he said - and Kent Mercker and David Weathers combined for a hitless ninth.

Back home at Great American Ball Park, the Cincinnati Reds quickly started hitting. Ken Griffey Jr.'s three-run homer got the Reds rolling in a five-run first inning last night, and they set a season high for scoring to back Bronson Arroyo in a 15-5 rout of the Milwaukee Brewers. One day after Cincinnati lost at Detroit, 1-0, Austin Kearns added a two-run shot to help Arroyo (6-2) rebound from a rocky start in Pittsburgh last Wednesday. David Ross set a career high with four RBI, Brandon Phillips had a career-high four hits and Adam Dunn also homered.

As it is in every other major league ballpark, the pitchers mound at Citizens Bank Park is 60 feet, six inches from home plate. It's just that it doesn't seem that way to Roy Oswalt, who will go against righthander Bronson Arroyo and the Cincinnati Reds Friday in Game 2 of the NL division series. "For some reason the mound here, the way the park is set up, I feel like I'm standing next to the hitter when I'm throwing," Oswalt said Wednesday. "It doesn't feel like the regular 60 feet.

Bronson Arroyo wishes the four-man rotation were still the norm. Arroyo took his turn a day early and threw his first career shutout last night, a three-hitter that sent the Cincinnati Reds to a 3-0 victory over the visiting San Francisco Giants. The Reds finally emerged from the funk of a 2-8 West Coast trip that pushed them back in the pack of National League wild-card contenders. Pitching in a dire situation on 3 days of rest, Arroyo (12-9) got Cincinnati turned around.

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. - The Phillies have five starting pitchers on their 40-man roster. One carries a career 4.38 ERA. Another has never thrown a pitch in American professional baseball. A third has 18 major-league starts to his name. Ruben Amaro Jr. is searching for pitching at these winter meetings, and that is no secret. The Phillies general manager is alarmed at the market prices for a mid-rotation starter. He could acquire one via a trade, but his chips are limited. The path to improving a starting staff that ranked 14th among National League teams in ERA is muddled.

THE HIGH-POWERED Colorado Rockies were no match for Bronson Arroyo's slow-motion act. Arroyo limited the NL's most prolific offense to four singles in eight innings, and Jay Bruce had a two-run homer among his three hits, leading the Cincinnati Reds to a 3-0 victory over the visiting Rockies last night. Arroyo came in with a 4-8 career record against the Rockies, but kept them off balance from the start. His first three pitches of the game clocked 70, 72 and 72 mph. His pitches occasionally dipped to 69 mph. The Rockies lead the NL in runs, with 275, but couldn't do much with those many oh-so-slow deliveries.

You could say that Kyle Kendrick kept the Phillies in the game on a cloudy, drizzly afternoon in which he did not have stellar command. Then the beleaguered bullpen put a match to it. That would be only half the truth. Full disclosure: The Phillies' offense was never in this game against Bronson Arroyo and the Cincinnati Reds, and so this momentum-deprived season continued Saturday at Citizens Bank Park with a 10-0 loss. It was the sixth time the Phillies have been blanked, matching the team's total number of scoreless games for the entire 2012 season, which, if you recall, wasn't exactly a celebrated one. Only the woeful Miami Marlins have been shut out more often.

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.

DOMONIC BROWN'S god-given abilities are tantalizing. He can make more than 40,000 jaws drop simultaneously. When Brown shows off his five-tool talent, as he did more than a couple of times on Wednesday night at Citizens Bank Park, you understand why Ruben Amaro Jr. put the "Not for Sale" sign on his former top prospect when the Toronto Blue Jays held Roy Halladay out for the Phillies to take three summers ago. But in his first 18 games in...

As far as auditions go, Domonic Brown had a good night, Vance Worley provided mixed results, and the Phillies continued to look toward the future, because the present has not been very encouraging. After struggling with Bronson Arroyo for eight-plus innings, the Phillies could not solve closer Aroldis Chapman for the second straight night in a 3-2 loss to the Cincinnati Reds Wednesday at Citizens Bank Park. Brown had a double, hit his first home run of the season, made a sensational catch in right field, and gunned down a runner at the plate.

CINCINNATI - Roy Halladay's feet touched second base and he looked around the diamond from a spot so unfamiliar. He saw the three runners he had driven in with a bases-clearing double celebrating at home plate. He glanced at third base and saw Juan Samuel clapping his hands. Then Halladay put his hands on his knees and bent over for a minute during Tuesday's 9-0 Phillies win because even he needs a moment to collect his breath sometimes. Of course, rest was something Halladay reluctantly endured before Tuesday.

CINCINNATI - Charlie Morton shut down Cincinnati's powerful lineup again, throwing a five-hitter for his second career shutout, and Pedro Alvarez hit a three-run homer Wednesday night, leading the Pittsburgh Pirates to a 5-0 victory that snapped their six-game losing streak. Morton (5-1) avoided heavy rain for a change and stymied Cincinnati again. He threw a five-hitter for a 6-1 win at Great American Ball Park on April 15, coming within one out of his second career shutout. Alvarez ended his streak of 15 games without driving in a run when he connected in the fourth off Bronson Arroyo (3-4)
