In fact, the Reds have not scored on him in 18 consecutive innings.

Manny-free Dodgers storm on The Los Angeles Dodgers, who seemed to be purely a function of Manny Ramirez's sizzling bat in their late surge to the NL West title last fall, appear to have missed the slugger not a whit this spring. With Ramirez gone for three weeks now, serving a 50-game suspension for using a banned substance, the Dodgers have stormed to their best May since the heyday of Koufax and Drysdale. Los Angeles went 20-9 in May, posting its highest win total for the month since going 21-7 in 1962.

Phillies slugger Ryan Howard slugged 58 home runs and won the National League MVP award. Soon he'll have an allowance to match. Howard, profiled on HBO's "Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel" in a segment to air Monday night, talks about how his financial adviser - his mother - gives him an allowance out of the money he earns. "She handles the funds. Like, I'll get it, and then I won't see it. She'll let me look at the check, and then it's gone," Howard said. The 27-year-old St. Louis native made $355,000 last year.

Everybody knows how badly the Phillies need Brett Myers and Cole Hamels to be a formidable 1-2 punch at the top of their rotation this season. But so far Myers has not delivered in his first two starts. He allowed eight hits, four runs, three walks and two home runs in five innings during yesterday's 8-2 loss to the Cincinnati Reds at Great American Ball Park. He is 0-1 with a 6.30 ERA overall, and he has not reached the sixth inning in either start. In his first start last Monday in the season opener, Myers said he simply did not have good stuff.

Hey, man - as Dusty Baker likes to say - the Reds were relieved to get out of Wrigley Field in Chicago with a victory and end a five-game losing streak. "It's been a tough 5 days. We needed this game badly," Baker said yesterday after Joey Votto and Ken Griffey Jr. led Cincinnati over the Cubs, 9-2. Baker's return to Chicago, where he managed the Cubs from 2003-06, started with two losses, right after the Reds had been swept three games in Pittsburgh. "We didn't want to have back-to-back sweeps.

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.

One of these days, Placido Polanco will be on the field for a Roy Halladay no hitter. Yesterday wasn't it. Polanco, who did not play during Halladay's perfect game against the Marlins on May 29, missed the no-hitter against the Reds with a case of back soreness. The veteran third baseman's injury was one of the few pieces of bad news that arose yesterday, when the Phillies won their seventh straight postseason series opener, this time beating the Reds, 4-0, while celebrating history.

When it came to appointing a starting pitcher for Game 1 of the National League Division Series, Cincinnati manager Dusty Baker freely admitted that he did not have the "three clear-cut choices" that the Phillies have. "You could put [Roy] Halladay and [Roy] Oswalt and [Cole] Hamels in a hat and put your hand in there and you'd come up with a No. 1," Baker said yesterday at his news conference at Citizens Bank Park. "We have guys that are approaching No. 1. We have quite a few of them.

When he announced his starting rotation against the Phillies for the National League division series, Reds manager Dusty Baker surprised many by leaving out Travis Wood . But Baker left open the possibility that Wood could start if the best-of-five series goes to four games. Wood, a lefthander who has been among the league's better rookie pitchers, took a no-hitter into the ninth inning against the Phillies on July 11 at Citizens Bank Park. The Phils had more problems against Wood during Roy Halladay's no-hitter in their 4-0 win in Game 1 Wednesday.

CINCINNATI - Ramon Hernandez hit a two-out, three-run homer in the bottom of the ninth inning Thursday, rallying the Cincinnati Reds to a 7-6 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers in an opening-day flashback to their 2010 NL Central title season. The Brewers became the first team in 42 years to open the season with back-to-back homers when Rickie Weeks and Carlos Gomez connected off Edinson Volquez. Ryan Braun also had a solo shot, helping Milwaukee take a 6-3 lead to the ninth. That's when the Reds reverted to their winning ways of 2010.

The Reds are an interesting bunch. Especially Dusty Baker. The man is an odd cat - or dog, rather. He's more of a dog guy, as it turns out. This week, in the run-up to the National League division series, the Reds' manager happily offered some fascinating personal information. Among the revelations: a detailed recap of a scrap he got into with an unruly crew of Canadians during the 1981 World Series - a brawl that rendered him one-handed for days thereafter because he ostensibly mashed a few of our northern neighbors into creamy poutine.

JOEY VOTTO called it miserable. Jonny Gomes figured he'd better swing because waiting for a mistake was futile. Dusty Baker said the whole thing was a nightmare. For every historical pitching performance, there is an opposing club that slinks back to its dugout wondering what in the world the other guy is throwing. Roy Halladay's no-hitter last night left the Reds bewildered and focused on the only positive of the night. The 4-0 loss was just one game in a best-of-five series.

THE PHILLIES draw first blood more often than the cast of "True Blood," HBO's paean to the involuntary transfusion. Children of the night, vot music they make, as Count Dracula used to say. At 7:42 on the night National League history was made, Reds leadoff hitter Brandon Phillips gave his team's last drop. Roy Halladay had pitched his way into the rare air of baseball history. No National League pitcher had ever thrown a postseason no-hitter. Until last night. And he came one mislocated pitch from his second perfect game of 2010.
