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 conversation with Phillies pitching coach Bob McClure helped David Buchanan formulate a new goal for his second major-league season. The fast-working righthander prides himself on throwing strikes, and he and McClure agreed he is the type of pitcher capable of finishing a season with fewer walks than starts made. Buchanan dug himself a considerable hole, however, in his season debut Thursday night. The 25-year-old uncharacteristically issued four walks, including one of the four-pitch variety with the bases loaded.

THE PHILLIES were playing in Cincinnati on a Monday night. Ben Revere made a highlight-reel catch, with the words "Pray for Boston" freshly etched on his glove. The Red Sox had just wrapped up their annual Patriots' Day game at Fenway Park before heading out for a short, three-game trip to Cleveland. A week before the 2-year anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombing, a federal jury declared that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was guilty of all 30 counts he was charged with in the horrific event that left three spectators dead and wounded more than 200 people.

Cole Hamels displayed his usual stuff Monday, manager Ryne Sandberg said, but the Phillies ace lacked consistent command of his pitches. The Boston Red Sox teed off on four of them, sending three fastballs and a change-up into the left-field seats at Citizens Bank Park. The first was all that truly mattered, though, as an offense that is expected to struggle needed only opening day to reveal itself. Three hits made up the Phillies' output in their 8-0 loss, perhaps an indicative performance to start what is expected to be a long season for the team's fans.

A YEAR AGO, Mookie Betts was preparing for his season as a Double A infielder in Portland, Maine. Yesterday, he hit a third-inning home run against Cole Hamels and ran down the few balls hit to him in centerfield. You want to know why the vibe is so different for the Boston Red Sox after a season in which they managed to lose even more games than the Phillies, Mookie is as good a place to start as any. Only 22, Betts was the leadoff hitter in Boston's free-agent-infused Opening Day lineup yesterday, a lineup that has added Hanley Ramirez and Pablo Sandoval to central figures Dustin Pedroia and David Ortiz, a lineup that, yesterday at least, included a healthy and mobile Shane Victorino.

She was 80 years old, and her blood pressure was out of control. She didn't care about that, though. She was more concerned about her feet. They had been red for a couple of months, and now they were getting "tingly. " They didn't hurt, and they weren't swollen. On exam, there was some redness of the tops of her feet that cut off abruptly just before her toes. There was some similar reddish discoloration of her knees as well. Her feet weren't swollen, and they had good circulation. I was much more concerned about her irregular heartbeat, so by the time I finished with an EKG (which was fine)

THE RED SOX' David Ortiz wrote an entertaining piece for the Players' Tribune, the website run by former Yankees great Derek Jeter. Ortiz, who is listed as "editor at large," gave a first-person account of being tracked down and tested for performance-enhancing drugs during the offseason. "I was ready to shoot somebody, man. Literally," writes Ortiz. "I was sleeping at my house in the Dominican this winter when I heard a banging on my front door at 7:30 in the morning. Now, I got security.

  There's an important rule in medicine: don't treat members of your family. It's a good rule, and I'm pretty good about following it. I would never go so far as to prescribe controlled substances for a family member, but it's hard to avoid offering a diagnosis from time to time. My husband got out of the shower one day and began drying off his back. "Ouch!" he said. "What's wrong?" I asked. "Something hurts. " I looked at the skin of his back. There was nothing there.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - There is no truth to the rumor that Ruben Amaro Jr. spotted Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington in the middle of yesterday's split-squad game against the Red Sox and used his fingers to pantomime a phone while mouthing the words, "Call me. " But the thought had to have crossed his mind as he watched two of Boston's projected starters combine to walk five batters while allowing 10 runs and striking out only two in 7 1/3 innings...

CLEARWATER, Fla. - More than a few heads surely turned here at 1:29 p.m. Sunday when the seven-hole hitter for the Boston Red Sox stepped into the batter's box for the first time. Blake Swihart is the touted catching prospect the Phillies are said to covet in a potential trade involving ace Cole Hamels. The 22-year-old's name constantly surfaces in trade speculation, and will likely continue to do so until the July 31 trade deadline passes. But while it was a bit curious that Swihart was the catcher sent on the more than two-hour trip to start against the Phillies at Bright House Field, there was nothing to it, according to the Red Sox. "So, Blake's here because of the rotation that we've been looking for with position players the last four to five days," Boston manager John Farrell said before the game.
