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.

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.

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.

WITHIN a 2-week span before the end of 2014, Ruben Amaro Jr. has jettisoned two everyday players from the Phillies' lineup. A dozen days after Jimmy Rollins officially was traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers, the general manager sent outfielder Marlon Byrd to the Cincinnati Reds in exchange for pitching prospect Ben Lively on Wednesday. The Phillies also sent cash to Cincinnati to complete the deal. Byrd, who turns 38 in August, hit a career-high 25 home runs in 2014. He also struck out a career-high 185 times; only Ryan Howard struck out more among major league hitters.

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.

MIAMI - On Friday, Kyle Kendrick pointed the finger at himself after giving up three first-inning runs in a loss to the Cincinnati Reds. But it was a little difficult to fault Kendrick that night, since they were the only runs he allowed and since the Phillies failed to score at all. The Phils had also been shut out the previous night, and in two of the last three times Kendrick took the mound. In his last 15 starts, the Phillies were averaging 2.36 runs per nine innings in games when Kendrick took the mound.

The Phillies position players have remained relatively healthy, but the offense has been inconsistent through a 17-21 start entering Friday's game at Citizens Bank Park against the Cincinnati Reds. The Phillies entered the weekend with a minus-34 run differential, the third worst in Major League Baseball. They were 29th in runners left in scoring position per game (4.11) and 26th in runners left on base per game (7.63). Before Friday's game, manager Ryne Sandberg was candid when asked if he was surprised at the offense's inconsistency, especially without many health issues in the first 38 games.

ALLENTOWN - Reliever Jeremy Horst seemed to turn his career around with a stellar closing to the 2012 season with the Phillies. After beginning 2013 in the major leagues, he saw his year end with an elbow injury. Now the lefthander is attempting to work his way back to the majors while pitching for triple-A Lehigh Valley. The 28-year-old Horst is still shaking off the rust during the first month. In eight relief appearances entering the weekend, he had a 3.38 ERA with 13 strikeouts and three walks over eight innings.
