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.

A transportation report issued Monday about the use of red-light cameras throughout New Jersey shows a decrease in crashes at intersections where the devices are used. Two locations where a three-year analysis was available shows that right-angle crashes are down 86 percent, rear-end crashes are down 58 percent, and total crashes are down 72 percent, according to the New Jersey Department of Transportation. Estimated crash-severity costs have been reduced $246,200. Initially, rear-end crashes at some intersections increased, according to a report issued a year ago. The reports are part of a five-year red-light pilot program that was launched in 2009 and ends in December.

ALL PETE ROSE wants is a second chance. Twenty-five years ago, Rose was banned from the game he knew and loved. For 15 years, the game's all-time hits leader denied the allegations that he bet on baseball, but in 2004, Rose came clean. Yesterday, Rose made an appearance at Christ's Church of the Valley in Royersford to be interviewed in front of three of the largest crowds the church had ever experienced. Speaking with Senior Pastor Brian Jones at the 9, 10:15 and 11:30 a.m. services, Rose used the time to tell the audience of past experiences in the game, the mistake he made as a manager and his hope for a chance to be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame.

A majority of New Jersey motorists continues to support the use of red-light cameras, but in declining numbers, a new survey by AAA shows. The poll of 1,000 motorists found 56 percent support use of the cameras to catch drivers who run red lights. That's down from 77 percent in 2007, before New Jersey allowed the use of such cameras, and down from 61 percent in 2011, as cameras were being used in 25 towns as part of a five-year pilot program. Some of the change in attitude may be attributed to their increased usage, as people who have been caught by red-light cameras are more likely to view them negatively, AAA Mid-Atlantic spokeswoman Jenny Robinson said.

Science disappeared, but Geometry was saved. After a house fire in Strawberry Mansion last year, a cat named Science went missing, but Geometry was rescued by Red Paw Emergency Relief Team, a nonprofit that assists people and their pets when fire strikes. A month after the fire, Geo - as Red Paw nicknamed him - was surrendered by his owners, who were still struggling to get their lives back in order. The cat remained in Red Paw's foster care until he was recently adopted by a firefighter.

The recent layoffs announced by Crozer-Keystone Health System and Temple University Health System are a sign of financial turmoil at all but the strongest Philadelphia-area hospital networks. Crozer and Temple both had operating losses in the six months ending Dec. 31, and so did Einstein Health Network and Holy Redeemer Health System. However, officials at Einstein, which has hospitals in Philadelphia and Montgomery County, and at Holy Redeemer, which has a hospital in Meadowbrook and other diverse health services in the region, said Thursday that neither system was planning layoffs.

Amid a winter ranked among the worst in the Philadelphia region's history, the local Red Cross has struggled to deliver disaster relief. "We have been incredibly busy," Renee Cardwell Hughes, CEO of the American Red Cross of Southeastern Pennsylvania, said Monday. The area has been buffeted by excessive snow, bitter temperatures, ice storms, and power outages. "We always see an uptick in fires when the weather gets cold, but because there has been no break in the cold weather, we have seen an incredible number of fires," the former Common Pleas Court judge said.

Hollywood's brightest stars sparkled at Sunday night's Academy Awards in gowns fashioned from nude metallics and white shimmer, wrapping up a nearly flawless red-carpet season. The night's best-dressed prize goes to Naomi Watts, stunning in a white, cap-sleeved dress courtesy of Francisco Costa for Calvin Klein. Lupita Nyong'o was a close second. She looked like she was floating in the icy-blue, whimsical Prada gown that she said reminded her of Nairobi, Kenya, her childhood home.

Fresh off an ambitious, three-game road trip that required double overtime to dispatch Providence on Tuesday, there will be no rest for weary No. 9 Villanova (23-3, 11-2 Big East) Saturday when it hosts surging St. John's (18-9, 8-6) at the Wells Fargo Center. "It's good to get back home and play at Wells Fargo Center," Villanova coach Jay Wright said, "but we've got our hands full with St. John's. Everybody thought they would be one of the tougher teams in the conference in the preseason.
