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.

On Oct. 22, 1777, hundreds of Hessian troops marched on a smaller cohort of colonial soldiers, intent on taking control of Fort Mercer, an outpost on the New Jersey side of the Delaware River. The Hessians attacked on foot from two directions; in the river, six British ships had the fort blockaded. But the Americans took the Battle of Red Bank decisively. Soldiers fought valiantly on land while small American gunboats took on the British ships. The victory was a much-needed boost of morale for the colonial soldiers.

Jason Groome could have been the first overall pick. Throughout the spring, several projections had him slotted there. But during the Major League Baseball first-year player draft Thursday night, Groome slipped down the board. At No. 3, the Braves took a pitcher. At No. 4, the Rockies took a pitcher. At picks six through nine, pitchers were taken. None of them was Groome. But eventually, with the 12th pick, the Red Sox selected the 6-foot-6 lefthander from New Jersey's Barnegat High School.

Magee DeFelice, M.D., Chief of Allergy and Immunology at Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children, wrote this for the Healthy Kids blog at philly.com/healthykids. Tree pollen is at its height now, and many children are suffering from itchy, watery, red, and swollen eyes - but is it allergic conjunctivitis or an infection? With allergic conjunctivitis, the eyes will be very itchy, but should not feel painful; symptoms are present in both eyes; eye secretions are watery; the eyelids may be swollen; and there are often nasal symptoms, too. Children do not typically develop fever with allergies, and will likely experience more discomfort when they are outside.

A car door slammed on South Reeds Beach Road, and 300 feeding shorebirds - ruddy turnstones, sandpipers, and red knots - took wing, shrieking out over the Delaware Bay. The commotion caught the attention of Rutgers University biologist Joanna Burger. She rose from the nearby bulkhead where she was monitoring an experiment, and started walking over. All seemed calm on this Middle Township beach in Cape May County. And yet there is growing tension here between economics and ecology, conservationist and oyster farmer.

Nearly $5.5 million collected from fines for red-light violations at 28 Philadelphia intersections will fund 23 safety-improvement projects in 18 municipalities across the state, Gov. Wolf announced Monday. The biggest chunk of money - $2.8 million - will go to five projects in Philadelphia, including $1 million for safety improvements at 30 to 50 "crash locations," according to a news release. Michael Carroll, acting commissioner of the Philadelphia Streets Department, said the city would have three years in which to identify the sites and use the Automated Red Light Enforcement grant.

The signal came from the dugout in the fourth inning of a forgettable 9-4 Phillies loss. So Adam Morgan intentionally walked Tucker Barnhart, Cincinnati's No. 8 hitter, to face the opposing pitcher with the bases loaded. But Morgan could not throw a strike to Dan Straily. He threw four pitches, all balls. The crowd groaned as another run scored. "That's one of the loneliest feelings in the world," Morgan said, "walking a pitcher and walking in a run. " It was that sort of day for the 26-year-old lefthander and his Phillies teammates, who were silenced by a nondescript Reds righthander on a cold, interminable Sunday afternoon at Citizens Bank Park.

Pete Mackanin hoped Tyler Goeddel would launch the perfect throw. The outfielder did. Goeddel fired a strike from left field to home plate on Saturday night with two outs in the ninth inning. Cameron Rupp hoped he would be able to keep his grip on the ball and seal a 4-3 win over Cincinnati at Citizens Bank Park. Rupp certainly did. The catcher nabbed Goeddel's throw and survived a nasty crash at home plate to finish a wild win. The throw brought Rupp a shade to his left and into the path of Eugenio Suarez, who had tagged up and was sprinting from third base.

Pete Mackanin is not at the controls of a baseball juggernaut. His offense - which entered Friday as the second worst in the National League - scrapes together just enough runs to squeak past teams. And on Friday night, that forced the manager to try to create a run of his own in the fourth inning of a 3-2 Phillies win over Cincinnati at Citizens Bank Park. Mackanin called for a safety squeeze with one out and a runner on third. The manager had stressed throughout spring training that the Phillies would bunt for runs.

Taxidermy isn't just stuffed deer heads and bass for grandpa's den anymore. In the last few years, the craft has gone through a resurgence, with a wave of young, hip practitioners putting a new spin on it. "A lot of new taxidermy that we're seeing from younger people experimenting is them using the craft as a means to express themselves in a different way," says taxidermist Beth Beverly, host of the Philadelphia Alt Taxidermy Competition ...
