CINCINNATI - A young family walked out of the elevator and onto the field level at Great American Ball Park late last night, about a half-hour after the game. A boy held a baseball in his hand. "Which one is that?" a stadium security guard asked in the hallway that leads to the Reds' home clubhouse. "The third one!" the boy said triumphantly, raising the souvenir with one hand and high-fiving the guard with the other. He was off to deliver the ball to the hero of the night.

It was not just a big game in Cincinnati and Philadelphia. They also were watching with great interest north of the border in Ontario on Wednesday night when the Phillies' Roy Halladay waved his magic arm and sent 104 pitches in different directions while pitching the second postseason no-hitter in baseball history. Richard Griffin, a baseball columnist for the Toronto Star, said Halladay still is revered by Ontario baseball fans who watched him pitch for a dozen seasons with the Blue Jays.

THE PLAY: Another game, another killer error for the Reds. This time shortstop Orlando Cabrera's first-inning overthrow allowed the Phillies to score the first run. THE SETUP: A lingering injury to his left side kept Cabrera out of the original starting lineup, but he reported feeling healthy after taking grounders during batting practice. Manager Dusty Baker had intended to start Paul Janish, a youngster regarded as the more polished fielder, but changed his mind just before the game.

What members of the Cincinnati Reds were saying after being no-hit by Roy Halladay: "In the three at-bats I had, I might have had one pitch to hit and I fouled it back. " - Drew Stubbs "In my last at-bat, I was just up there hacking - I looked up on the board and he's got like 21 or 22 balls in the eighth inning - and that didn't work for me, either. " - Jonny Gomes "I was taking too big of swings, honestly. When it got to 3-2 and he threw that sinker down, I was just able to lay off it. " - Jay Bruce, whose fifth-inning walk accounted for the Reds' only baserunner.

CINCINNATI - Jay Bruce hit a two-run homer in the eighth inning off Roy Halladay, rallying the Cincinnati Reds to yet another win in their final at-bat Wednesday, 4-3, over the Phillies. Joey Votto also homered off Halladay (9-7), who fell to 2-4 since his perfect game on May 29. Jonny Gomes opened the eighth with a single, and Bruce connected for Cincinnati's 25th comeback win - most in the majors. The Reds have 14 wins in their last at-bat, tied for the major league lead.

MIAMI - Entering Saturday, Odubel Herrera stood with three National League stars. The Phillies centerfielder had started in every one of his team's games, a feat matched only by Joey Votto, Nolan Arenado, and Anthony Rizzo. Could Herrera start all 162? It is unlikely. Just four Phillies have done it, and only Jimmy Rollins has accomplished it in the last 32 seasons. But Herrera said 162 is a goal. And his manager, Pete Mackanin, sees some merit to the idea. "He's full of energy," Mackanin said.

CINCINNATI - The bullpen door opened in right field at Great American Ball Park, and Jeanmar Gomez paused. Nine outs. Pete Mackanin asked his bullpen for nine outs. Nine outs, and the Phillies could secure an opening-day win Monday to start this season rife with drab expectations. A quartet sang "God Bless America. " Mackanin pleaded in silence. But when two rebuilding teams gathered before 43,683 people in a city that holds a parade for opening day, the weakest group in the building was exposed.

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.

HATS OFF to Reds first baseman Joey Votto, who helped make a dying fan's wish come true. Jeffrey Crews, of suburban Dayton, died of brain cancer on July 4 at the age of 62. But 2 days earlier he had one of the best days of his life. When Votto found out the terminally ill man wanted to attend a game, the Reds' first baseman arranged for field-level seats for Crews, his wife, three children and daughter-in-law. Votto chatted with the family, posed for a photo and gave Crews an autographed bat. Then, to top it off, Reds starter Homer Bailey pitched a no-hitter against the Giants.

H OMER BAILEY threw his second no-hitter in 10 months and the first in the majors this season, pitching the Cincinnati Reds to a 3-0 victory over the visiting San Francisco Giants last night. Bailey (5-6) became the third Reds pitcher with more than one no-hitter, joining Jim Maloney and Johnny Vander Meer - still the only big-leaguer to toss two in a row. Bailey beat the Pirates, 1-0, in Pittsburgh last Sept. 28 and got another 17 starts later. "Every dog has its day twice, I guess," Bailey said.

GIO GONZALEZ allowed just one hit in eight innings, and Denard Span and Danny Espinosa drove in three runs each to lead the Washington Nationals to a 8-1 win over the visiting Cincinnati Reds last night. Gonzalez, who allowed 12 runs in his previous nine innings, retired the first 11 Reds batters before Joey Votto homered with two outs in the fourth. He struck out seven and walked two. By the time Votto homered, Gonzalez (2-1) had a 6-0 lead. "Gio's a guy with an All-Star track record and a guy who could have won the Cy Young last year and it's not surprising," Votto said.

CINCINNATI - It took nine minutes for the Phillies to lose Wednesday. Charlie Manuel did not move from his perch in the dugout. He hung his arms over the railing as he watched the Reds celebrate what felt like a spring training victory. Fewer than 1,000 people dotted the stands. "Obviously, there is no intensity," Phillippe Aumont said. "As a pitcher, you have to find a way to fire yourself up. " Aumont faced four batters. All four reached base. Cincinnati won the resumption of a suspended game, 1-0, with a walk-off single by Jay Bruce.

CINCINNATI - It's a valid excuse that comes up every October, when some major league teams are asked to start their postseason games during the late afternoon, when the sun creates shadows on the infield. It hampers the hitters' ability to see pitches. On Wednesday afternoon at Great American Ball Park, in the conclusion of Tuesday's suspended game, the sun became a valid excuse for the Phillies' latest defeat. Except it played tricks on outfielders, not hitters. Two nights removed from arguably the best catch of 2013, Ben Revere lost a ball in the blazing sun as the Reds quickly put an end to the restarted game in a 1-0 victory.
