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?"

Deion Sanders was back with the Cincinnati Reds - for a day. Sanders visited his former teammates yesterday before a game against the Atlanta Braves, whom Sanders also played for from 1991 to '94. Sanders was traded to San Francisco July 21. The former two-sport star helped the Dallas Cowboys win the Super Bowl last season. 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.

The Phillies and Eagles were honored last night at ESPN's annual ESPY Awards in Los Angeles. Phillies ace righthander Roy Halladay, who went 21-10 last year and led the Phillies to the postseason, was named the Best MLB Player. Halladay also won for the Best Moment, for the no-hitter he threw on Oct. 6 as the Phillies blanked the Cincinnati Reds, 4-0, in Game 1 of the National League Division Series. The Eagles' 38-31 victory over the New York Giants on Dec. 19 won the ESPY for Best Game.

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.

CINCINNATI - Chris Iannetta hit a solo homer and a bases-loaded single in the 13th inning on Monday, powering the Los Angeles Angels to a 3-1 victory over the Cincinnati Reds in the majors' first interleague season opener. Both teams emptied their benches and bullpens before Iannetta - who caught all 13 innings - finally provided the breakout hit. The Angels loaded the bases with two outs in the 13th off J.J. Hoover, who walked two and hit Hank Conger, the Angels' final position player.

Shortstop Barry Larkin, a 12-time All-Star who spent his entire 19-year career with the Cincinnati Reds, has retired and joined the Washington Nationals in their front office as a special assistant. "I just felt it was time," Larkin said when reached yesterday at his home in Orlando, Fla. "I had some opportunities with other teams to play, but I didn't feel that I could make the commitment as a player with another team. " The Reds, his hometown team, had rejected his overtures to return for a 20th season, deciding to turn the position over to younger players.

The Phillies have given you cause to pay attention again. It is the middle of May and only a handful of teams in baseball have more wins than the team that had the most losses a year ago. If you went to Citizens Bank Park on Sunday afternoon hoping to find some more reasons to believe this can last deep into the summer, you were left in the cold both literally and figuratively. In fact, the Phillies' wind-chilled, 9-4 loss to the Cincinnati Reds did nothing but confirm the worst fears about a team that is exceeding all expectations.

CINCINNATI - The door to the manager's office opened about 10 minutes after the Phillies' debilitating 3-2 defeat to the Cincinnati Reds on Wednesday night and Pete Mackanin confessed how difficult his job has been through just two games. "Boy, these close ones are killing me already," he said. "It is a shame because we wasted two good starting performances and couldn't close it out. We need to score more runs, make it a little easier. " Easier is not something Mackanin's job is likely to become between now and the season finale in early October.

CINCINNATI - The pick-your-poison pen that rookie general manager Matt Klentak has assembled for the start of the 2016 season left Phillies manager Pete Mackanin with nothing but wrong doors to open once the eighth inning arrived early Monday evening at Great American Ballpark. Jeremy Hellickson, making the first opening-day start of his career, ended up as the guy who got zonked, and the relievers who coughed up the 2-1 lead he had left for them knew the starter had received a raw deal.

WITH YESTERDAY'S game postponed because of rain, the Phillies will open their final series of the season against the Miami Marlins as part of a single-admission doubleheader today starting at 4:05 p.m. Gates open at 3:05 p.m. Aaron Harang (6-15) will go against Marlins righthander Tom Koehler (11-14) in the first game, followed by rookie righthander Alec Asher (0-5) and Marlins lefthander Justin Nicolino (4-4) in the nightcap. Asher, 23, had his shortest, and one of his worst, outings as a big-leaguer Wednesday in a 7-5 win over National League East-champion New York Mets, allowing five earned runs and two homers on three hits in only two-thirds of an inning.

The Phillies have spent most of the last six months as baseball's worst team. They have scored the third-fewest runs, allowed the third-most, and are among the worst defensively. But as they enter the final two days of their season, they have yet to lock up the prize that comes attached to such a woeful season - the No. 1 pick in the next draft. That could change Saturday, when they play a single-admission doubleheader against the Miami Marlins at Citizens Bank Park. First pitch is set for 4:05 p.m. The magic number coming into the day is 2, meaning any combination of two Phillies losses or Cincinnati Reds wins will clinch the top pick for the Phillies.

CINCINNATI - Maybe it was too much anticipation about what was going to happen. In this city, Pete Rose is revered like nowhere else - even Philadelphia. One of the roads adjacent to Great American Ball Park is called Pete Rose Way. No matter Rose's status of exile from Major League Baseball, he can never be erased from Reds lore. So when Major League Baseball granted a one-night reprieve allowing the banned-from-baseball Rose to walk into a major league ballpark and have a minor role in last night's All-Star Game festivities, it was assumed the cheers from the sellout crowd would blow the roof off the stadium if it had one. Rose's greeting wasn't underwhelming but it was far from overwhelming.

CINCINNATI - Teams in the summer market for a second-tier starting pitcher will watch closely to see how Aaron Harang bounces back from his worst two starts of the season. The journeyman righthander regressed as last year wore on, and potential trade partners for the Phillies are now likely to be wary of a recurrence. For the second time in six days, the Cincinnati Reds had their way with Harang, their former five-time opening-day starter. The 37-year-old's struggles didn't provide the Phillies much of a chance in an 11-2 loss, their major-league-worst 38th in 60 games.

CINCINNATI - Thirty-three-and-a-half years ago, the Phillies' front office made one of the more forgettable moves in franchise history. It sent five-time All-Star shortstop Larry Bowa and infield prospect Ryne Sandberg to the Chicago Cubs in an offseason trade that netted 29-year-old shortstop Ivan DeJesus. Bowa's career was nearing the finish line - he'd play three more seasons as a starting shortstop - but Sandberg went on to be one of the best-hitting second basemen in baseball history and to earn a place in Cooperstown.

During Cody Asche's first weekend as a major-league leftfielder, the Colorado Rockies hit only three line drives and fly balls his way. Several other hits flew well over his head and into the Citizens Bank Park seats. But on Tuesday night the Cincinnati Reds kept Asche plenty busy at his new position. The converted third baseman appeared comfortable while hauling in five balls hit toward him in the Phillies' 5-4 win, none more important than a Brandon Phillips fly out at the wall to end the sixth inning, stranding two runners in scoring position.

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.
