Sports Headlines for  Thursday, August 17, 2000

Brewers 5, Reds 1
        MILWAUKEE — Obscured in the euphoria of the Reds' weekend sweep of the Chicago Cubs was the fact that the Reds were 2-for-19 with runners in scoring position. The Reds' bats went from cold to icy as they came north to play the Milwaukee Brewers.

        MILWAUKEE — Jason LaRue was in the Reds' lineup at catcher Wednesday for the 10th time in the last 11 games. It doesn't sound like that's about to change.

Coslet sees no WR help on waivers

Sports face determined opponent in ministers
        ANDERSON TOWNSHIP — The U.S. Constitution doesn't cover it, but mixing church and sports has become as aggravating to a group of ministers as the separation of church and state.

Maccabi Games bring together 1,300 Jewish youngsters
