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.

Johnny Cueto, right, has been one of the top righthanders in the league this season, but the 24-year-old rarely lasts longer than six innings. Mike Leake is a 22-year-old rookie who recently has shown signs the workload may be taking a toll. Depending on two pitchers that young in October could be risky. Bronson Arroyo is a solid professional who is heading toward his seventh consecutive season with more than 30 starts. He was an NL all-star in 2006 and pitched in 10 postseason games for the Red Sox, eight of them in relief, before going to Cincinnati.

Xavier Nady drove in Nyjer Morgan with a 10th-inning single and Pittsburgh beat host Atlanta, 4-3, last night. The Braves used seven pitchers after Mike Hampton's much-anticipated comeback was postponed by a chest injury suffered in pregame warmups. Jeff Bennett started in Hampton's place. Hampton, scheduled to make his first start since Aug. 19, 2005, strained his left pectoral muscle while warming up in the bullpen. The Braves' lefthander was listed as day-to-day. Hampton's absence forced the Braves (1-3)

Cincinnati seems intent on breaking the mold for baseball's small-city teams. Owner Bob Castellini has concluded the only way to make the Reds a consistent contender is to spend to keep the team together rather than losing players through free agency. "You do that to build a franchise and a foundation for years to come," Castellini said. "So I don't [expect] to continue to have all these huge contracts. But you build your franchise on the people that are in that dugout and on that field.

It looks as if Johnny Cueto won't be back, after all. The Cincinnati Reds dropped the injured ace from their division series roster Wednesday, replacing him with righthander Mike Leake for Game 4 against the San Francisco Giants. Major League Baseball granted permission for the move at 11:30 a.m., less than five hours before the first pitch. The Giants won, 8-3. Cueto pulled muscles in his side during the first inning of the series opener Saturday night. The Reds had been hoping he'd improve enough to be able to pitch again.

GREG DOBBS drove in a career-high five runs, including a solo homer, and Logan Morrison and John Buck each homered to lead the visiting Florida Marlins to a 11-2 win over the Washington Nationals last night. Dobbs drove in Florida's first run in the first on a groundout, scoring Omar Infante who had tripled. He added another run-scoring single in the seventh and two more on a single during Florida's five-run ninth inning. It was the second time this year the Marlins have scored at least 10 runs.

JOHNNY CUETO ordered three runs. His Cincinnati teammates dutifully delivered. The Reds pitcher came off the mound after the sixth inning of his start Sunday against the visiting Washington Nationals with the score tied, 3-all. "I said, 'I want three runs here. Do it for me,"' Cueto said. Todd Frazier confirmed Cueto's order. "I was screaming with him," the Cincinnati third baseman said. "He was saying it in Spanish, but we understood. " Boy, did they. The Reds scored three runs off Washington ace Stephen Strasburg on their way to a 6-3 win in what started out as a highly anticipated matchup of young aces.

Compared to his extracurricular activities, negotiating contracts must be a breeze for New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman. But during his latest feat, as he helped raise funds for the Wounded Warrior Project, Cashman hurt himself. Cashman suffered a broken right leg Monday while skydiving with the U.S. Army Golden Knights from Homestead Air Reserve Base outside Miami. The Yankees said X-rays revealed a broken fibula and dislocated ankle; Cashman was scheduled for surgery.

The World Baseball Classic has been far from a hit on American shores. Most fans cast their eyes a few weeks farther down the line to the start of the major-league season. Perhaps that could change this time around. After all, everyone loves some international intrigue. The Taiwanese baseball federation apologized to the South Korean federation earlier this week, according to South Korea's Yonhap News Agency. Why? Four Taiwanese scouts posed as umpires and snuck into a South Korean practice game on Tuesday.

CINCINNATI - Hardly able to get a hit, the San Francisco Giants used a misplayed grounder to prolong their NL playoff series. Third baseman Scott Rolen's two-out error in the 10th inning gave the Giants the go-ahead run Tuesday night in a 2-1 victory over the Cincinnati Reds, who couldn't shake 17 years of home postseason futility. The Giants avoided a sweep in Game 3, cutting their division series deficit to two games to one. Rolen, an eight-time Gold Glove winner, couldn't come up with Joaquin Arias' short-hop grounder, bobbled it, and threw late to first.

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.

CINCINNATI - The Phillies didn't suffer from a hangover from Sunday night's debilitating loss in Atlanta. They didn't look overmatched against the first-place Reds, either. Instead, they beat the second-best team in baseball with three rookie pitchers. Tyler Cloyd made the most of his second big-league start and Phillippe Aumont was up to the task when asked to nail down his first major league save opportunity. Despite sporting a fastball that will never impress a radar gun, Cloyd dominated the Reds for seven innings while Aumont did what the team's veteran closer couldn't do the night before as the Phillies took a 4-2 win in a Labor Day matinee.

CINCINNATI - This September will conjure few memories for a team accustomed to its annual champagne celebration with postseason planning. These Phillies are playing out the string, and a day like Monday is ripe for sleepwalking. They arrived in Ohio shortly after midnight following a wretched defeat in Georgia and faced an early wake-up call for holiday matinee baseball. The leading candidate for National League Cy Young fired against their depleted lineup. The Phillies sent a junk-balling 26-year-old rookie pitcher up against the team with the second best record in baseball.
