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.

Two years after the Pennsylvania legislature allowed red-light camera systems to expand beyond Philadelphia, Abington is the only suburb to install one. Under a one-year pilot program, cameras were slated to begin monitoring three of Abington's busiest intersections at 12:01 a.m. Friday. After a two-month grace period, violations caught by the camera will result in a $100 fine to the owner of the vehicle. The 11 other towns in Southeastern Pennsylvania large enough to qualify for red-light cameras have either ignored or rejected the idea.

When a breathless Jonas Cattell dashed into Fort Mercer that October day in 1777, the enemy wasn't far behind. Hours earlier, the 18-year-old had overheard talk of an attack on the American fort and ran the 10 miles from Haddonfield to Red Bank, Gloucester County, bypassing Hessian mercenaries along the way. His timely warning gave the American defenders time to reposition their artillery and set a trap that decimated the Hessians. About 400 of them - a third of the German force - were mowed down by cannon and musket fire, then buried in a mass grave at what is now Red Bank Battlefield Park.

With his shaved head, lumbering gait, and 190 pounds packed on a 6-foot-1 frame, Conor Casey could easily be dismissed as a bull in a china shop. But his atypical soccer physique has always belied a deceptively deft touch. Casey's crafty footwork led to the first two Union goals Wednesday in a 3-1 victory over the New York Red Bulls at PPL Park. Midway through his second season with the Union, the veteran forward has rediscovered the form that once made him one of the premier scoring threats in MLS. Casey, who had 10 goals with the Union last year, has six in his last six games after not scoring in the first 14. "He just needed a run of games.

THE NEW YORK Red Bulls' position in the standings doesn't necessarily jump off the page, but a simple glance at the MLS statistical leaderboard serves as a reminder of the club's firepower. Bradley Wright-Phillips and Thierry Henry will arrive at PPL Park tonight as the league's leaders in goals and assists, respectively. Thwarting their efforts will be crucial for the Union (4-8-7) in what interim manager Jim Curtin yesterday deemed "a real swing game" regarding the direction of his team's season.

Louis "Red" Klotz, 93, a Philadelphian whose basketball life spanned much of the game's history and produced a historic legacy of losing, died Saturday at his Margate, N.J., home. Mr. Klotz won championships at South Philadelphia High, with the barnstorming Philadelphia Sphas and with the NBA's Baltimore Bullets. But it was with the Washington Generals, the Harlem Globetrotters' longtime foils, that the 5-foot-7 redhead made a lasting impact. Mr. Klotz, whose family still owns the team, founded the Generals in 1952.

HOW COULD the owner of a basketball team that lost 14,000 games expect to get in the Hall of Fame? Every year when the inductees were announced, Red Klotz died a little. But he was not the kind of guy to brood. He took his lumps and moved on. And moving on meant continuing to coach and play the game he loved, into his 90s. Louis Herman "Red" Klotz, whose involvement in basketball as player, coach and team owner went back 80 years, and the owner and coach of a team that was created to lose to the legendary Harlem Globetrotters in games all over the world, died Saturday.

Buzz: Hey Marnie. Yesterday was the hottest day so far this year, which made me wonder: Why do people ice down their white wines, but not reds? Is it the only way to make them taste good? Marnie: No, Buzz, not at all. Other wine styles are routinely served cold too - sparkling wines and roses, dessert wines and even most fortified wines. The question should really be why we don't chill red wines - they are the exception to the rule. Think about it: Almost all drinks are served cold because it makes them seem more refreshing.

The Boston Red Sox scout told Josh Pennington to "be patient. " That's not the Lower Cape May senior pitcher's strong suit. "I was going crazy," Pennington said of his anxious moments as round after round of the major-league baseball draft unfolded on Saturday afternoon. As it turned out, Pennington said he will regard Saturday as one of the best days of his life. "It's a dream come true," Pennington said after he was selected by the Red Sox in the 29th round.

CINCINNATI - Billy Hamilton sprinted around the diamond until he reached Homer Bailey near third base. Fireworks erupted Sunday at Great American Ball Park while a Reds pitcher - whose two-run single ignited a nightmarish fifth inning - scored on a slap-hitting outfielder's home run. This is how the 36th loss, 4-1 to Cincinnati, looked for the Phillies. There is no end in sight; they are on pace to lose 96 games. The Phillies have the worst record in the National League at 25-36.
