The Cincinnati Reds continue to inspire images of 1990, when they won the National League pennant and swept the Oakland Athletics in the World Series. The Reds beat the Atlanta Braves, 12-3, Saturday at Cincinnati, increasing their NL West lead to three games over the defending National League champions. "I think this shows a lot of people that this team is good under pressure," Cincinnati pitcher Jose Rijo said. "Everybody was hungry and ready to do something.

DETROIT - The poke check, while slow-developing, might have pulled Ducks goalie Jonas Hiller out of trouble after Detroit's Gustav Nyquist split the defense and attacked with a burst of speed. But everything seemed to turn sideways. The puck went off the knee of Ducks defenseman Bryan Allen. Hiller alertly kicked out his left leg and made the save. But three saves? That was asking too much. BOX SCORE: Detroit 3, Ducks 2 The Ducks failed to pick up the trailing forward, Damien Brunner, a natural goal scorer who certainly wasn't going to miss an easy tap-in.

Many of the Cincinnati Reds watched on television in the players' lounge at Riverfront Stadium as Pete Rose pleaded guilty to two counts of filing false income tax returns. What they saw was reminiscent of the circus summer of 1989, when their former manager was seldom out of the camera's eye as baseball conducted its gambling investigation and eventually suspended Rose for life. "Last year was a nightmare," first baseman Todd Benzinger recalled.

Dodgers ahead Tuesday through Thursday: Reds at Cincinnati Friday through Sunday: Nationals at Washington The Dodgers open this trip with what could be a long night, with Chad Billingsley scheduled to face Homer Bailey on Tuesday. Billingsley has started two games this season, making 223 pitches in 11 innings, with seven walks. Bailey also has started twice this season, making 221 pitches in 10 1/3 innings, with six walks. The Reds drafted Bailey, 23, as their top pick in 2004, and he appeared to blossom last season, posting a 6-1 record and 1.70 earned-run average in his final nine starts.

Even the most staid British music periodicals have been giddy over the 3-year-old period instrument band Red Priest. Saturday the quartet of early-music veterans gave us some indication of what all the clamor is about with a high-energy Baroque hoedown at the El Camino College Center for the Arts. The ensemble's name comes from the nickname given to Vivaldi by his contemporaries. Its performing style, however, comes from pop-infused acts such as Kronos Quartet and the violinist Kennedy.

The Cleveland Indians and Cincinnati Reds must put their long-awaited I-71 World Series on hold for at least another year. But next spring will play each other at the home of the Triple-A Columbus Clippers to begin an annual exhibition series. The game between the Buckeye State's two major league teams will be played for the Ohio Cup, a 5-foot trophy going to the winning team each April. The first game in the series will be April 2, the day before the start of the 1989 major league season.

The Boston Red Sox hit a record seven home runs against the New York Yankees in powering to a 10-3 victory Friday before 55,144 at Yankee Stadium. Switch-hitter Bill Mueller homered from both sides of the plate, Jason Varitek and David Ortiz each connected twice and Manny Ramirez hit one. All of Boston's runs came on homers, making it easy for Derek Lowe (10-3) to win for the seventh consecutive time.

When Manager Marcel Lachemann inserted Rex Hudler into the starting lineup last Wednesday at Seattle he said he was hoping the peripatetic second baseman "could provide a spark." What he got was a brush fire. In four games against Oakland, Hudler went 10 for 15 with two doubles, a home run, four runs, three stolen bases and three runs batted in, and made a nice catch of Mark McGwire's eighth-inning popup with two runners on Sunday.

The Cincinnati Reds' streak of bad luck continued today when transportation problems in Montreal kept them from playing the annual Hall of Fame game against the Boston Red Sox at Doubleday Field. The game was scheduled to start at 2 p.m. EDT, but at that time the Reds were in Montreal. A Hall of Fame official said the Reds had bus problems and then difficulty chartering a plane for the trip to central New York. The bottom line was that they didn't make it.

Ten months have passed since Sandy Alderson and Fred Claire arose from the bargaining table in Dallas, shook hands and walked away with fingers crossed, the gamble officially undertaken. Bob Welch and Matt Young were to become Oakland Athletics. Alfredo Griffin and Jay Howell were to become Dodgers. And the New York Mets, acting as middle men, were to send Jesse Orosco to Los Angeles for three prospects.

A great baseball game builds like a great night at the symphony. The Angels and Red Sox played one Friday night, and in the end, the Angels hit most of the high notes. It seems fairly clear now that the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, who have been off-key so often in recent postseason play, are now producing sweet music. This game started slowly, quietly. Soft percussions. The guys with the batons in their hands, Red Sox pitcher Josh Beckett and Angels pitcher Jered Weaver, controlled everything.

When the Boston Red Sox took the dramatic step of placing slugger Manny Ramirez on irrevocable waivers this week, it marked the boldest move yet by a major league team to restructure its payroll while still trying to remain competitive. It's doubtful the move will work for the Red Sox, because few teams can afford to add the $101.5 million Ramirez is owed over the final five seasons of an eight-year, $160-million contract.

Longevity landed Carlton Fisk and Tony Perez in the Baseball Hall of Fame, but one game defined their careers. Twenty-five years after the Reds and Red Sox played in the 1975 World Series, baseball will celebrate one of its greatest moments when two of the series' heroes are inducted at Cooperstown this weekend. Former Cincinnati manager Sparky Anderson, who was elected by the Veterans Committee, and longtime Reds announcer Marty Brennaman, who will receive the Ford C.

The boys' basketball team from Shasta High in Redding has to hope that tonight's game against Compton Dominguez for the State Division II championship is as big a deal as was getting to the Pond of Anaheim. By the time the Wolves tip off against the defending champion Dons at 8 p.m., they will have completed the two-week tournament by logging more miles than any other finalist. Redding, which competes in the sparsely populated Northern Section, is about 100 miles south of the Oregon border.

In less than six months on the market, Sony PlayStation has reportedly sold more than 800,000 units. It's not hard to see why. With great graphics, killer sound and a price tag that's about as good as it gets, PlayStation knocks its competitors out cold. For example, the 32-bit system has given me new respect for that staple of electronic gaming: the flight-sim fighter.
