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.

Kay's Red Eagle Tavern closed at the site in April after 65 years.

All it took was two consecutive plays Sunday night to erase 66 minutes of futility for the Union. First it was Keegan Rosenberry sending in a cross to Chris Pontius who was taken down in the box and C.J. Sapong scored on the ensuing penalty kick. Then it was Fabian Herbers sending in a similar cross a minute later. Charging toward the back post was Pontius, and this time he wasn't dragged down. He tapped the ball into the goal with no one in front of him. Two goals. Two minutes.

B UZZ: Hey Marnie, I was out of beer last night after a sweaty day of yardwork, so I tried adding ice to my favorite cabernet. It tasted awful! Marnie: Some red wines can handle being chilled, Buzz, but that isn't one of them. The same traits that people love about cabernet sauvignon make it very temperature-sensitive. Buzz: Temperature-sensitive? Don't sauvignon grapes like hot weather? Marnie: No, Buzz. Red wines that are dark in color and intense in flavor are usually high in tannin.

(See article here. ) Reader: The Red Store in West Cape May is outstanding. What a meal. Has to be one of the best BYO's down the shore. Craig LaBan: No doubt, The Red Store is one of the best restaurants at the Shore. By the way, RS owners Lucas Manteca and Deanna Ebner also own Quahog's, my favorite from this year's roundup of good seafood places.

A 53-year-old man was fatally struck Thursday morning on Roosevelt Boulevard by a truck whose driver is accused of being under the influence, police said. Just before 11:20 a.m., the 1997 Ford F-150 was heading south on the Boulevard at high speed when it barreled through a red light at Southampton Road in Northeast Philadelphia, police said. The truck hit a 2005 Infiniti G35, then struck the median before hitting the pedestrian. The man, whose name was not released, was taken to Aria Health-Torresdale Campus, where he was pronounced dead at 12:09 p.m. The driver of the truck, a 24-year-old man, was arrested for investigation of driving under the influence.

It's the simplest of instructions, and at halftime the Union clearly got the message: Shoot the ball! After being outshot 14-1 and outscored 1-0 in the first half, the Union were an entirely different team in the final 45 minutes Wednesday night. The aggressive approach led to a 2-1 victory over the New York Red Bulls in a round of 16 game in the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup at Talen Energy Stadium. The Union, who have lost in the previous two U.S. Open Cup finals, advanced to the July 20 quarterfinals against the host New England Revolution.

When the Union meet the New York Red Bulls in Wednesday's Round of 16 U.S. Open Cup game at Talen Energy Stadium, the teams will have a difficult time topping the drama that occurred in their U.S. Open Cup game last year. The Union won that quarterfinal, 4-3, on penalty kicks after the teams played to a 1-1 draw through 120 minutes in regulation and overtime. It was one of the wildest games, especially since the Union played two-thirds of the contest a man down after Conor Casey earned a red card in the 40th minute.

It's Too Late to Stop Now . . . Volumes II, III, IV & DVD (Legacy ***1/2) Like snowflakes, or the free-wheelin' jazz horn players he vocally emulates, no two Van Morrison concert performances are exactly alike. Reason this newly unearthed, four-disc collection of 1973 shows at the Troubadour in L.A., the Santa Monica Civic Center, and London's Rainbow Theatre - all with the roaring lion bouncing off the walloping 11-piece, horn- and string-rich Caledonia Soul Orchestra - are such a joy. Even multiple renderings of "Brown Eyed Girl," "Caravan," "Domino," and "Cypress Avenue" don't wear out their welcome.
