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.

The few caustic signs in the stands weren't a bother. Mike Leake was glad just to be back on the mound and, for a few hours, away from his troubles. Better yet, he got a win. Leake got razzed by some fans during his first appearance since his shoplifting arrest, but ignored the handwritten signs and gave the Cincinnati Reds a much-needed boost yesterday, going seven innings for a 7-4 victory over the visiting Arizona Diamondbacks. Joe Votto homered and Ramon Hernandez had two hits, including a run-scoring double for the Reds.

The passion of Zito Everybody knows the story: When Barry Zito left the Oakland A's to cross the bay to the San Francisco Giants in 2007 in a then-record $126-million deal, he had a Cy Young and a 102-63 record. Then he went 31-43 over the next three years, won a label as a free-agent bust, and earned the enmity of Giants fans (yep, they boo players in other places besides Philly, though this is a little-known fact). "You walk into a bookstore or a coffee shop and people look at you with disgust in their eyes," Zito told Ann Killion of Sports Illustrated.

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.

Brooks Conrad slowed up as he rounded first base, unsure if his drive had cleared the leftfield wall to give the Atlanta Braves an improbable victory. Then he saw Laynce Nix swat at his empty glove in frustration. The ball went over. Game over. Conrad hit a pinch-hit grand slam yesterday to finish off a seven-run ninth inning that gave the Atlanta Braves a 10-9 victory over the visiting Cincinnati Reds, who fell out of first in the NL Central and can only hope the stunning loss doesn't leave a hangover on their surprisingly strong start.

MATT GARZA waited 10 months to take the mound again, but he will have to wait a little longer to get a victory. Travis Snider hit a pinch-hit grand slam during a five-run sixth and the Pittsburgh Pirates spoiled a strong return to the mound for Garza with a 5-4 win over the visiting Chicago Cubs last night. Garza allowed one hit over five shutout innings in his first outing in 10 months, but the Pirates pounced on a Chicago bullpen that is 10th in the National League in ERA by sending 11 men to the plate in the sixth.

SAN FRANCISCO - Mike Leake pitched eight scoreless innings and rapped two hits off Tim Lincecum as the Cincinnati Reds gave the San Francisco ace one of his worst beatings ever in a 10-2 victory on Saturday. Brandon Phillips hit a two-run double and scored twice and Joey Votto knocked the two-time Cy Young award winner out with an RBI double in the fifth inning to give the Reds their second win in three games in San Francisco. Lincecum (5-5) equaled his career worst by allowing seven runs in four-plus innings, marking the first time since his rookie year in 2007 that he had allowed seven earned runs in a game.

Cincinnati Reds pitcher Mike Leake was arrested on a shoplifting charge at a downtown department store yesterday, accused of trying to steal six shirts with a total value of $59.88. The 23-year-old starter was booked at the Hamilton County Justice Center on a first-degree misdemeanor charge of shoplifting. It carries a maximum of 180 days in jail. He was arrested about 2 hours before Cincinnati pitchers were expected at Great American Ball Park to take batting practice before the final game of a series against Pittsburgh.

The Cincinnati Reds weren't even supposed to be here. A year after winning 78 games, manager Dusty Baker has led his team to a 91-71 record and the National League Central Division title. The surprising success has led to a 2-year extension for Baker. The Reds have relied heavily on a surprisingly strong bullpen and an even stronger offense. The Reds start their pursuit of a sixth World Series title tomorrow against the Phillies. Here's what you should know about the Reds: 1. Cincinnati had the most intradivision wins in all of baseball.
