CINCINNATI - When three Phillies baserunners had nowhere to go and a promising fourth inning died in a game that ended in a 2-1 loss to the Cincinnati Reds, Charlie Manuel could not scream. He had no clear view of a ball that was ruled a catch but not really one. It happened too quickly; his players were confused. On a Tuesday night when Kyle Kendrick pitched well enough to win and Jimmy Rollins celebrated his 2,000th hit, these Phillies discovered a new way to lose. "That's kind of the way everything happens for us," Manuel said, "isn't it?"

Freddy Galvis will enter the series opener Tuesday against the Cincinnati Reds in his biggest slump in an otherwise great first two months of the season. The Phillies' 25-year-old shortstop sat Sunday, his fifth day off in the season's first 52 games. A recent 12-game stretch dropped Galvis' batting average from .355 to .289 after the loss to the Colorado Rockies on Saturday. He had just seven hits in his last 52 at-bats and was hitless in his last 13. The ever-confident Galvis said he believes he is still hitting the ball well, just to the wrong spots on the field.

Reds general manager Jim Bowden spoke to Sanders about a contract yesterday, but Sanders said he would not play baseball this year. "Trust me, Jim gave me his best one," Sanders said.

Pete Rose never expected baseballs bearing his autograph and a printed apology for betting on baseball to be sold publicly, his business agent said. A New Jersey auction house plans to put 30 such balls up for bid in April, unsure how much they'll fetch. The baseballs belonged to a memorabilia collector who died last December. Baseball's banished hits king signed the baseballs for some of his friends about a year ago, but didn't want them put up for sale, according to business agent Warren Greene.

It didn't take Charlie Hustle long to cash in on his latest controversy. Disgraced hit king Pete Rose is already selling balls signed, "I'm sorry I bet on baseball" on the Internet - at $300 a pop. On Monday, the New York Daily News revealed that such balls signed by Rose were going to be auctioned. On Tuesday, Rose said he signed the balls for private collectors and never expected to see them on the open market. By yesterday, he was hawking a new batch of the balls on his Web site, for $299, plus $4.99 shipping and handling.

Hoover, who walked two and hit Hank Conger, the Angels' final position player.
