How did Cincinnati Reds pitcher Homer Bailey celebrate no-hitting the Pittsburgh Pirates on Friday? By answering mail and knocking back a bit of Kentucky bourbon at his Iron City hotel bar with teammates. The 26-year-old said he answered all the 140-plus messages he got, but he did admit some copying and pasting. Bailey's was the seventh no-no in the big leagues this year, but he saw the vagaries of the game at play. "There is a real fine line there in throwing a no-hitter," he said.

Manny may be coming back, but his dreadlocks are taking a holiday. The Texas Rangers agreed Wednesday on a minor-league deal with Ramirez, 41, last seen with Taiwan's EDA Rhinos. He hit .352 with eight home runs and 43 RBIs in 49 games with the Rhinos, who offered to raise his salary from $25,000 to $60,000 to get him to stay. Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said part of the deal was that Ramirez, twice suspended for positive drug tests, agree to cut his hair. (Yeah, that'll do it.)

Hoffman back on the bump for Brewers - sort of Trevor Hoffman may be in a class of his own as a closer - he leads the majors all-time with 595 saves - but he'll have to settle for being a setup man for the time being. Milwaukee put him back in Sunday, but he will be pitching middle innings as he searches for his old form, MLB.com reports. He's off to a promising start. Hoffman pitched a perfect eighth in a 4-3 interleague win at the Twins on Sunday. Manager Ken Macha had sidelined him to work with pitching coach Rick Peterson after bad turned to worse Tuesday against the Reds.

SAN FRANCISCO - Brandon Phillips still sees the highlights of his weak grounder for the final out in Roy Halladay's no-hitter of the Cincinnati Reds in an embarrassing playoff opener two years ago. Now, Phillips and the Reds have their own memorable winning playoff moment. After losing their ace, no less. Sam LeCure, Mat Latos and three other pitchers shut down San Francisco after Johnny Cueto went out in the first inning with back spasms, and Cincinnati was powered by home runs from Phillips and Jay Bruce to beat the Giants, 5-2, in Game 1 of the NL division series Saturday night.

The kid sure knows how to answer a call. Starlin Castro got awakened by his first call to the majors yesterday and arrived in historic style, hitting a three-run homer in his first at-bat and driving in a record six runs during the Chicago Cubs' 14-7 victory over the Reds in Cincinnati. "The kid - what a debut!" manager Lou Piniella said. "He's got to be ecstatic. He should be. " The 20-year-old became the youngest shortstop in Cubs history when he stepped onto the field for the first time.

CINCINNATI - Billy Hamilton sprinted around the diamond until he reached Homer Bailey near third base. Fireworks erupted Sunday at Great American Ball Park while a Reds pitcher - whose two-run single ignited a nightmarish fifth inning - scored on a slap-hitting outfielder's home run. This is how the 36th loss, 4-1 to Cincinnati, looked for the Phillies. There is no end in sight; they are on pace to lose 96 games. The Phillies have the worst record in the National League at 25-36.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Any time the money reaches these kinds of proportions, it is easy to sit back and scoff, and the Phillies can sometimes make it easy for those who wish to do so. But the tone of Ryne Sandberg's voice told the story yesterday. The Phillies needed A.J. Burnett. "He's a belated Christmas and Valentine's Day gift that I've been waiting for," the manager said. These are the names of some of the No. 3 starters that Burnett could find himself matching up against in the National League this season: * Julio Teheran, Braves: 3.20 ERA, 185 2/3 innings, 8.2 K/9, 2.2 BB/9 in 2013 at the age of 22; * Jordan Zimmermann, Nationals: 3.25 ERA, 213 1/3 innings, 6.8 K/9, 1.7 BB/9, 27 years old; * Zack Wheeler, Mets: 3.42 ERA, 100 innings, 7.6 K/9, 4.1 BB/9, 23 years old; * Homer Bailey, Reds: 3.49 ERA, 209 innings, 8.6 K/9, 2.3 BB/9, 27 years old; * Michael Wacha, Cardinals: 2.78 ERA, 64 2/3 innings, 9.0 K/9, 2.6 BB/9, 21 years old; * Hyun-Jin Ryu, Dodgers: 3.00 ERA, 192 innings, 7.2 K/9, 2.3 BB/9, 26 years old. Last year, the Phillies faced Teheran, Zimmermann, Wheeler, Bailey and Ryu a total of 12 times.

The Reds' Homer Bailey has some big acts to follow when he takes the mound Tuesday with a chance to finish an NL division-series sweep of the San Francisco Giants in Cincinnati. The first is his own no-hitter on Sept. 28, a gem twirled against Pittsburgh, the last time he was on the hill at Great American Ball Park. The second is teammate Bronson Arroyo's masterpiece on Sunday night, in which Arroyo retired the first 14 batters before giving up a two-out single to Brandon Belt in the fifth.

JAIME GARCIA homered off Bronson Arroyo and pitched into the seventh inning, helping the St. Louis Cardinals clinch a tie for the second NL wild card and spoil Dusty Baker's return from a mini-stroke with a 4-2 victory over the visiting Cincinnati Reds on Monday night. The defending World Series champions have won 11 of 14 and led the Los Angeles Dodgers, playing at home later against San Francisco, by 2 1/2 games. A loss by the Dodgers or another Cardinals win would wrap up a playoff spot for St. Louis and a visit to Atlanta for the wild-card game Friday.

Dan Uggla hit a three-run homer and Michael Bourn also went deep Tuesday night, leading the Braves to a 5-4 win over the visiting St. Louis Cardinals that snapped an eight-game losing streak - Atlanta's longest in more than 2 years. "This is not an indication of what's going to happen the next day or the next week or the next month," Uggla said. "But it definitely snaps the feeling of, 'Aww, man, are we ever going to win again?

ROOKIE Randall Delgado pitched five innings for his first major league win, and the visiting Atlanta Braves put the brakes on their recent skid by beating the Florida Marlins, 4-0, last night. "It was an important victory for the team," said Delgado (1-1). "There was a little pressure, but after a couple of innings I forgot about that. " The 21-year-old righthander, making his sixth career start, allowed five hits and lowered his ERA to 2.70. Cristhian Martinez and Anthony Vavaro both retired six consecutive batters to complete the 16th shutout for the Braves, which ties for third-most in the majors.
