Ian Stewart hit a tiebreaking home run in the eighth inning, lifting the Colorado Rockies over Cincinnati, 4-3, Monday afternoon and ending the Reds' winning streak at seven games. The National League wild card-leading Rockies won their fourth in a row despite losing Troy Tulowitzki. The shortstop left in the seventh inning after a run-scoring single because of a strained lower back and was listed as day to day. Rafael Betancourt (2-1) pitched a perfect eighth inning and Franklin Morales, filling in for the injured Huston Street, pitched out of a jam to pick up his fourth save in five chances.

The $1,000 George Harrison memorial book that comes out this week is just the latest sample of an upsurge in rock-themed special-edition publishing. It would be easy to blow the inheritance just to stock one short shelf of your library. You can spend about $950 for the David Bowie memoir "Moonage Daydream," $860 for a Jimi Hendrix experience, $720 for a Queen celebration, $1,000 for an Ian Stewart tribute.... Ian Stewart?

Why is the universe so mathematical? This question, which may never have occurred to you, turns out to be one of the stickiest philosophical conundrums of the day. The short answer is that no one knows the answer. No one knows why mathematics--an invention inside our heads--so accurately describes the physical world, the independent world outside. Eugene Wigner, a Nobel laureate in physics, put the question 35 years ago in an essay titled, "The Unreasonable Effectiveness of Mathematics."

TEMPE, Ariz. - It's far too early to determine how Albert Pujols will rebound from a subpar season that was cut short by a left-foot injury, but early returns on the slugger are encouraging. "I feel awesome," said Pujols, who had right-knee surgery after 2012 and suffered a partial tear of the plantar fascia in his left foot last July.

Marine Cpl. Ian Stewart, 21, and Marine Cpl. Michael D. Anderson Jr. lost their lives in Iraq last week (obituaries, Dec. 19). As we mourn their deaths, Time magazine has named George W. Bush its Person of the Year (Dec. 20). The criteria for its choice must have been the loss of more than 1,200 troops, thousands more in hospitals, the countless billions spent in assuring that oil will flow in the Bush neocons' veins, and other monstrous decisions. Time chose well! Mediocrity and greed rule this country.
