Few of Pete Harnisch's career wins were more dramatic or emphatic than No. 99. Harnisch held Pittsburgh hitless into the seventh inning, tied his career high with 12 strikeouts and wound up sharing a one-hitter as the Cincinnati Reds beat the visiting Pirates last night, 1-0. Sean Casey homered off Kris Benson (10-10) with one out in the bottom of the eighth, moving the Reds back into first place in the NL Central by percentage points over Houston. The Astros lost to Milwaukee earlier in the day. Harnisch (13-6)

A man in handcuffs looks like a criminal. So says Amable Valerio, who claims a jury convicted him of reckless endangerment in 1996 after seeing him in cuffs at the start of his trial and probably "branded him a criminal" before hearing evidence. He said the sighting "destroyed the presumption of innocence which every defendant enjoys. " Forget it, said the state Superior Court. It ruled last week that the trial judge was correct in refusing Valerio's mistrial motion, three days after the jury's handcuffing experience in a Pike County courtroom.

A 17-year-old who had escaped last month from a juvenile facility in Delaware County got away in handcuffs yesterday from Bucks County authorities. The youth, whose name was being withheld by police, escaped at 2:10 a.m. from a van that had stopped at a red light in Doylestown, police said. The van was en route from Doylestown Hospital to Bucks County Juvenile Detention Center on Route 611 in Edison. Brian Hogan, a guard who was driving the van, chased the youth for a block but lost him near Hamilton Street, Doylestown Borough police Sgt. Joseph Kissel said.

After apologizing yesterday for an altercation with a Buffalo cabdriver, Chicago Blackhawks winger Patrick Kane said the toughest part of the ordeal was his family seeing him in handcuffs. "They said it's something they never want to see again," Kane said after the opening practice of the 2009 U.S. Olympic orientation camp in Woodbridge, Ill. "My family didn't raise me that way, so it's tough to let them down, too. " A grand jury in Kane's hometown of Buffalo is expected to decide this week whether he should face criminal charges after the predawn Aug. 9 dispute left the cab driver bruised and with broken glasses.

Put the handcuffs aside. We'll get back to them in a minute. Frankly, there's something else on that video that troubles me almost as much. And if you're saying to yourself, "What video?" well . . . welcome home. How are things in the rain forest? Here in the States, everybody's talking about a much-televised video - shot in March but made public last week - of a 5-year-old in St. Petersburg, Fla., being taken into custody by police officers after throwing a tantrum at school.

It's a familiar stage play on the 6 o'clock news. A defendant in handcuffs. A scrum of reporters reaching out with microphones. The thrrp-thrrp of cameras. The whole scene bathed in white TV light. Yesterday, it was John M. Perzel's turn to endure the "perp walk. " For as long as anyone can remember, cameras have been waiting at the courthouse door for the politician or celebrity who gets himself in trouble. There are images of Prohibition-era gangsters in fedoras waltzing on the arms of cops.

IMAGINE taking a job running a troubled corporation with thousands of employees and being charged with turning it around. Only hitch is, you can hire only five people to help you do it. All other hires are done by another governing body, and based pretty much solely on test scores - not on qualifications like leadership abilities or management vision. That's going to be the dilemma facing the city's next police commissioner. Besides the next mayor, there's arguably no other job as important to the city and its future than the person who replaces Commissioner Sylvester Johnson when he retires at the end of the year.

DENVER - Cole Hamels' last three starts have lowered his season ERA by almost a full run. The 31-year-old lefthander's latest performance, his longest outing of the season, fueled the Phillies to their longest winning streak since September 2012. The Phillies earned their sixth consecutive win on Monday night in a 4-3 victory over the Colorado Rockies. Their ace allowed just one run and six hits over 71/3 innings. Hamels has won each of his last 11 starts in which he has been afforded at least three runs of support while he is in the game.

ATLANTA - A brisk top of the first inning Tuesday night ensured only three extra minutes for any nerves to stew as Chad Billingsley readied in the visitors dugout. The 30-year-old righthander walked to the Turner Field mound, threw his seven warm-up pitches, and toed the rubber to face Nick Markakis. After two years, two elbow surgeries, and countless steps of rehabilitation on his right elbow, Billingsley was a major-league pitcher again. The results in the Phillies' 9-0 loss to the Atlanta Braves proved far from what the pitcher had envisioned, but he left with some encouragement.

ST. LOUIS - Cole Hamels trotted out to the Busch Stadium mound shortly after 9 p.m. local time Monday. The bottom of the seventh inning signified just the second time this season the 31-year-old lefthander toed the rubber with a lead. A three-run top of the seventh in the Phillies' 4-1 win matched the team's combined run support for its ace over his first four starts. Hamels' win was his first in seven outings dating to last season. It came against the Cardinals on the same day the St. Louis ball club officially lost ace Adam Wainwright for the rest of the season.

THERE IS A scene in the old TV show "M*A*S*H" where Charles Winchester, the rich snob from Boston, chuckles because some farmers in the United States were wiped out by a tornado or something. Winchester owned stock in the farmers' direct competitors and the disaster resulted in a windfall for the heartless doctor. "They have their interests," he sneered. "I have mine. " When star players get suspended or go on injured reserve or whatever, there is an opportunity for fantasy leaguers to pounce on the misfortune - often by grabbing that player's direct backup.

THREE YEARS AGO, Jose Antonio Vargas was a 30-year-old with the kind of career that most young journalists only dream of - a share of a Pulitzer Prize with the Washington Post , a coveted byline in the New Yorker - when he decided to risk everything on the truth. The former Daily News intern confessed in a magazine article that he's been in the United States as an undocumented immigrant - brought here without papers from the Philippines at age 12 - and then announced he was leaving journalism to fight as an activist for the rights of some 12 million people who share his plight.

ATLANTA - The remnants of a depleted crowd chanted "Freddie! Freddie! Freddie!" when Cole Hamels threw his 84th pitch of the damp night. Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman waved at the majestic change-up that scraped the soaked dirt in the sixth inning. Carlos Ruiz hopped, ripped off his mask, and shouted at Hamels after the strikeout. "I know we haven't done it much, but we've got to start something," Hamels said. "The pride that we all have, it has to be for something. There's not too many opportunities to play the game of baseball.

AFTER HEARING about the recent heroin overdose of Stephanie Bongiovi, the 19-year-old daughter of entertainer and philanthropist Jon Bon Jovi (Tattle, Nov. 15), I was relieved to learn the young lady received medical attention quickly enough to avoid death or permanent injury. However, I was saddened to learn that police in the upstate New York town where she was attending college are now pursuing criminal charges against her for drug possession, in relation to the incident. Ms. Bongiovi is not a criminal, but rather someone in need of health services.
