Reporting from Denver -- This was just one of those nights. You could tell right away. With his third pitch, Hiroki Kuroda hit a batter. The catcher threw the ball back to Kuroda, who missed it. It was that kind of evening for the Dodgers, best forgotten. The Colorado Rockies thumped them, 11-3, on a blustery night that evoked memories of San Francisco's Candlestick Park. "This was a game we just chalk up and say, 'See you tomorrow,'" Dodgers Manager Joe Torre said.

Day for Night A Novel Frederick Reiken Little, Brown / Reagan Arthur Books: 326 pp., $24.99 Early in Frederick Reiken's third novel, "Day for Night," Timothy Birdsey, a 23-year-old bassist-mechanic-river guide, explains a song from his band's playlist. "What it's about," he tells us, "is the idea that we're much closer than we think to the random people we see on any given day, that everyone in this world carves out a little groove and that although you may think your world is large you rarely venture far outside of this groove."

" I can handle quirky design, especially when it comes with a good price during the high season, not during the super-heated desert summer.

Most textbooks, and pediatricians, will tell parents that infants should sleep through the night by 12 months of age. The new study investigated whether infants really could...

The ritual began just as the soft winter sun ducked behind the mountains Sunday, casting haunting shadows on this jittery Caribbean capital. Blackened pots bubbled with suppers of rice and beans above glowing charcoal. Sheets, cardboard mats and mattresses were laid neatly on the streets; a lucky few pitched pup tents. Chunks of rubble blocked roads to protect alfresco sleepers from passing motorists. The magnitude 7.0 earthquake that struck Haiti nearly two weeks ago, and dozens of aftershocks, including a 5.9 temblor at dawn last week, has turned Port-au-Prince into a city deathly afraid of the indoors.
