Pete Rose will contend that a former friend, angered when the Cincinnati Reds manager refused to lend him $40,000, falsely accused Rose of betting on Red games and triggered baseball's investigation, according to a newspaper report. The Cincinnati Post quoted unnamed sources Friday as saying that Rose will tell the investigators the accusations were made up after a blackmail attempt by Paul Janszen. Janszen is serving time in a Cincinnati halfway house on federal charges of evading taxes derived from the sale of steroids.

Jeff Bauman, who lost both of his legs during the Boston Marathon bombing, and his rescuer, Carlos Arredondo, were honored at Fenway Park on Tuesday night. Bauman, 27, threw the ceremonial first pitch to Red Sox catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia. Arredondo, 52, threw a pitch to slugger David Ortiz. Both men have been hailed as heroes. Arredondo, who lost one of his sons in Iraq and another to suicide, jumped a security fence to help victims when he heard the blasts.   Arredondo came across Bauman and helped make him a tourniquet.

On the eve of a day that may decide his baseball future, Pete Rose promised that he is not about to quit. "People are taking polls about me resigning, well, you can forget about those polls, they can be 1,000 to 1 (in favor of resignation), and I'm still going to take out the lineup card as manager of the Cincinnati Reds," Rose said Saturday in his pregame "Rose Report" broadcast on a local radio station. "When you belong to something you love, you don't quit, and I love the Cincinnati Reds."

BOSTON -- With a defiant and colorful cry, a Red Sox slugger sparked a cathartic release from Boston baseball fans after emotional pregame tributes to the victims and heroes of the Boston Marathon bombings Saturday at Fenway Park. For a sports-mad city trying to regain its sense of normalcy, the mantra “Boston Strong” was necessarily joined with another familiar refrain, “Play ball,” as the Red Sox played their first home game since the marathon attacks. A commemoration before the Royals took on the Sox began with a montage of images of the week's events set to Jeff Buckley's somber rendition of "Hallelujah.

Pete Rose's request for a temporary restraining order on a hearing with baseball Commissioner Bart Giamatti was delayed until Thursday by a Hamilton County Common Pleas judge. Rose wants to block a hearing scheduled for next Monday in New York with Giamatti, who is considering allegations that the Cincinnati manager bet on Red games. Rose was assured Tuesday that no disciplinary action will be taken against him for at least the rest of this week. Rose has sued Giamatti in an attempt to have the court, not the commissioner, determine his guilt or innocence.

A state judge, ruling that baseball Commissioner Bart Giamatti "prejudged" evidence that Pete Rose allegedly bet on baseball games, has blocked a hearing today at which Giamatti could have banned Rose from baseball for life. Judge Norbert A. Nadel of the Hamilton County Commons Pleas Court issued a 14-day temporary restraining order Sunday barring Giamatti from ruling on the evidence, and ordered that no action be taken against Rose during that time. Rose's lawyers will return to Nadel's court July 6 to seek a temporary injunction to indefinitely remove baseball's involvement in the Rose affair.

His team lost to the Cincinnati Reds, 3-1, Friday night, and normally that's all Dodger Manager Tom Lasorda would have seen. That's all he would have felt, or been able to talk about. But in this town, where a hero's reputation is coming apart in a manner as slow and uncomfortable as the Midwestern midsummer days, these are not normal times. After the Dodgers wasted 10 hits and another fine start by Mike Morgan, Lasorda chose to talk about something he saw an hour before the game.

Pete Rose attended his first game at the Cincinnati Reds' new ballpark Sunday, getting tickets for some of the best seats behind home plate. Hardly anyone expected baseball's all-time leader in hits, and few fans realized he was there. Rose sat inconspicuously in an aisle seat in the sixth row behind the plate, then left in the third inning of the Reds' rain-delayed game against the Toronto Blue Jays. The Reds didn't announced his presence or show him on the videoboard.

Andre Dawson likes respect at least as much as the next guy. But he admitted having second thoughts after the Cincinnati Reds fitted him for a straitjacket and walked him, still kicking and screaming, into the history books. Eight times on Tuesday, the National League's grim reaper of late walked to the plate. And five of those times, by design, he kept on walking. The first intentional pass came in the first inning against the first Cincinnati pitcher, the last in the 16th against the seventh.

A special investigator's report to major league baseball on Pete Rose's alleged gambling, made public Monday by a Cincinnati judge, accuses the Cincinnati Reds' manager of betting not only on major league games but on his own team's games as well, from 1985 to 1987. Lawyers for Rose won a temporary restraining order Sunday, preventing baseball from conducting a hearing with Rose--one was scheduled for today--until at least July 6. But the Ohio Supreme Court, responding to a suit filed Monday by the Cleveland Plain Dealer, ordered Judge Norbert A. Nadel of Hamilton County Common Pleas Court to release the report or explain why. Nadel, the same judge who Sunday had issued the temporary restraining order, complied reluctantly with the court's order.

Cleavage, mermaid trains, spray tans and borrowed bling, oh my. The Oscars red carpet fashion show is getting underway in Hollywood. Who will wear what tonight? Well, it's not much of a guessing game. Anne Hathaway is expected to wear Valentino, a house with which she has a long association. (Valentino made her wedding dress last year.) And Jennifer Lawrence, who appears in the new Miss Dior advertising campaign, will no doubt wear something by Dior designer Raf Simons.  Charlize Theron is another face of Dior (in other words, under contract with the fashion house)

Some of the highs and lows of watching Angels-Red Sox Game 2: Say hey Too bad, "Hitch" fans. Half-hour into the TNT movie, and the flick starring Will Smith and Kevin James was dumped for the start of the Angels-Red Sox game, which had to be moved off TBS because of extra Yankees innings. Say what? Erick Aybar is a trusting guy. Analyst Buck Martinez pointed out how Aybar checked with plate umpire CB Bucknor on whether a pitch Aybar swung at and missed would have been over the plate.

It's been a difficult and emotional week for the Angels. One day they're opening a promising new season beneath flags and fireworks. Then three days later they're mourning a popular teammate, killed in a traffic crash. So it probably shouldn't have come as a surprise that their emotions got the best of them Sunday, when Manager Mike Scioscia, one of his coaches and two players were ejected less than two innings into a 5-4 win over the Boston Red Sox.

If no one outside the Kings' locker room believed they could upset the Detroit Red Wings and win their first-round playoff series, they didn't care. "We're the only ones that matter. We've got to play the games," defenseman Aaron Miller said. "After the first two games, we knew we couldn't win playing that way. We made some changes, and they've worked. "I'm sure there are still people out there who don't think we can win. There's still a lot of work to do, but I like the way we're playing."

Boston Red Sox outfielder Wilfredo Cordero, who has been charged with beating and threatening to kill his wife, missed Sunday night's game against Atlanta for personal reasons, the team said. Team spokesman Kevin Shea said Cordero called Manager Jimy Williams and received permission to skip the game. Cordero was in the clubhouse after the 7-3 loss to the Braves and was expected to travel with the team to Montreal.

Steve Yzerman scored three goals, Hockeytown went bonkers, Guy Hebert got injured, Paul Kariya and Teemu Selanne scored goals and the two-time defending champion Detroit Red Wings subdued the Mighty Ducks, 5-3. What, you expected something different in Game 1 of their first-round best-of-seven Stanley Cup playoff series Wednesday at Joe Louis Arena? If you did, you simply haven't been paying attention. Game 1 certainly wasn't anything we haven't seen before from these teams.
