The Cincinnati Reds and officials in Hamilton County, Ohio, have agreed to build a riverfront ballpark downtown, one that could open in 2003. The cost of the stadium, with an agreed-upon 30-year lease, has been capped at $235 million. Cinergy Field, which opened as Riverfront Stadium in 1970, will be demolished to make way for the new park. Cubs catcher Sandy Martinez dropped his appeal of a two-game suspension from the National League for his part in a brawl with the Braves on May 25. Orioles first baseman Rafael Palmeiro and Indians righthander Bartolo Colon were named the American League's player and pitcher of the month for June.

Cincinnati's Barry Larkin met with general manager Jim Bowden for about two hours yesterday to consider the shortstop's request for a trade. Afterward, Larkin reiterated his desire to play for a contender, but Bowden said any trade was a "dead issue" right now. Larkin asked for a trade about two weeks ago because the Reds are rebuilding, according to Bowden. The Reds talked to four clubs but could not make a deal, he said. Montreal placed pitcher Mike Maddux on the 15-day disabled list because of a strained tendon in his right elbow.

Eric Anthony called Eddie Taubensee the hero. Taubensee said it was just his turn. Both hit pinch homers in Cincinnati's five-run eighth inning yesterday as the Reds out-homered the visiting Atlanta Braves to win, 9-8. Jerome Walton and Reggie Sanders also homered for Cincinnati, while David Justice, Charlie O'Brien and Chipper Jones connected for the Braves. "I've never been in a game where there were two pinch-hit home runs in an inning," Anthony said. "That's almost unheard of. "To me, Eddie's was the big blow.

Snow flurries, a touch of the flu and the red-hot Colorado Rockies - not exactly a pitcher's ideal elixir for success. It was a recipe for disaster yesterday for Cincinnati starter Ricky Bones as Ellis Burks homered twice and Andres Galarraga added four hits to help the Rockies extend their winning streak to six with a 13-4 rout of the Reds. On an afternoon with light snow and a wind-chill near 6, every Colorado starter had at least one hit, and the Rockies finished with 19 for the second straight game.

There was at least one place in this town where people seemed reluctant to talk about Pete Rose's legal victory, where smiles were scarce and answers were terse. That would be the Reds' clubhouse after yesterday's 7-0 loss to Orel Hershiser and the Los Angeles Dodgers. "I'm not talking," Reds leftfielder Ken Griffey said, turning his back on reporters who had hoped to ask him about his manager and former teammate. "I don't want to talk about Pete," rightfielder Paul O'Neill said.

The Cincinnati Reds are a lot like the Phillies. Both teams will attempt to play with the big boys next season despite low payrolls and diminished expectations. Both have signature players - righthander Curt Schilling for the Phils and shortstop Barry Larkin for the Reds - who have suggested to management that they should be traded. As baseball's winter meetings got under way yesterday at the sprawling Opryland complex, however, it was the Reds who seized the spotlight with the first announcement.

The Union are shorthanded and having to juggle international spots. They are playing on the road at an unusual time and in likely stifling conditions. That said, the team is eagerly anticipating its U.S. Open Cup quarterfinal against the host New York Red Bulls on Tuesday at 4 p.m. "It will be a unique game, 90 degrees in that stadium [Red Bull Arena] where there is no air and it will probably be 100 on the field," Union coach Jim Curtin said Monday before practice. "It won't be the fastest-paced game but one where two good teams go at it with the chance to get to the final four of a major competition.

Most of the former college point guards zoomed around the Philadelphia University court during The Basketball Tournament over the weekend, but Reggie Redding, who played small forward at Villanova, took a slower approach to the position. Five years after graduating from Villanova, the former St. Joseph's Prep star is playing for the Liberty Ballers, a Philadelphia-based team in a tournament that will award $1 million to its winner. The Basketball Tournament started with 97 teams competing across the country.

CINCINNATI - All eyes at Great American Ball Park will be on the field even before the first pitch of Tuesday night's All-Star Game. Pete Rose, expected to meet with new MLB commissioner Rob Manfred later this summer regarding his bid for reinstatement, is set to take part in a pregame ceremony alongside Johnny Bench, Joe Morgan, and Barry Larkin. The four were selected by fans as the Reds' Franchise Four. Rose, who in 1989 accepted his permanent ban from baseball for gambling on the sport, continues to seek reinstatement.

The Union will play the New York Red Bulls in a U.S. Open Cup quarterfinal July 21 at Red Bull Arena in Harrison, N.J. Game time is 4 p.m. because Red Bull Arena is hosting the International Champions Cup on July 21-22, the two dates that the U.S. Open Cup set aside for this quarterfinal game. The Red Bulls are playing Chelsea on July 22, which means they will compete on consecutive days. Major League Soccer's collective bargaining agreement does not allow players to play on consecutive days, so the Red Bulls will need two different lineups.

The 76ers are close to making a decision that will dictate center Joel Embiid's immediate and long-term future, general manager Sam Hinkie said in a news conference Friday. Hinkie said that another surgery has not been ruled out, and that he can't see Embiid playing for either of the Sixers' two summer league teams. Embiid, 21, missed what would have been his rookie season after surgery last June to repair the navicular bone in his right foot. In March, nine months after his injury, Hinkie said Embiid had a CT scan that "looked right on schedule.

What's the cutest animal? Koalas? Sure. Meerkats? Love 'em. Capybaras? Check. Hippos, prairie dogs, even iguanas - they all make the list. But, sorry guys, the title is all wrapped up once you see a red panda. The endangered, bambooo-eating native of the Himalayas, aka Ailurus fulgens , is about the size of a house cat (well, a big, well-fed one) and has a bushy ringed tail and raccoon-like markings. But it's not related to its namesake, the giant panda (which is a bear - and, yeah, also cute)

Somewhere in a remote part of Canada, antennae are likely picking up the signals of 100 shorebirds that just weeks ago were on the beaches of Delaware Bay, where they were caught with giant nets and fitted with tiny transmitters. The birds are robin-size creatures called red knots. After precipitous declines in their population on the bay - from about 100,000 birds in the 1990s to about 12,000 a few years ago - federal officials designated them as threatened in December. Researchers know that red knots have one of the longest migrations on the planet - from the tip of South America to their breeding grounds in the Arctic.

CINCINNATI - Chase Utley appeared to turn a corner in mid-May, when he began a hot streak that persisted through the first game of this month. Lately, though, Utley is struggling again at the plate. In a 5-2 loss to the Cincinnati Reds Wednesday at Great American Ball Park, the Phillies' veteran second baseman was hitless in three more at-bats, extending his latest drought to 0 for 21. Utley, who raised his average 108 points to .207 over 22 games from May 9 to June 2, will enter this weekend's series in Pittsburgh batting a National League-worst .185.

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.

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.
