National League Game Summary - Cincinnati at Los Angeles



(Thursday, July 25th)

Final Score: Cincinnati 5, Los Angeles 2

Los Angeles, CA (Sports Network) - Mat Latos' stellar outing as well as home runs by Jay Bruce and Xavier Paul helped the Cincinnati Reds snap the Los Angeles Dodgers' six-game winning streak with a 5-2 decision in the opener of a four-game series.

Bruce launched a two-run homer and Paul added a solo shot against Zack Greinke (8-3), who suffered his first career loss at Dodger Stadium and had his five- decision winning streak snapped.

Latos (10-3) had the Dodgers on their heels over 7 2/3 innings, scattering eight hits and striking out four while allowing two runs -- one earned -- in his first win in six starts at Chavez Ravine.

I felt pretty good. I was able to work my fastball in and I made pitches when I needed to. I was able to go deep into the game which helped our bullpen," said Latos.

The Reds improved to 4-1 on their 11-game road trip and beat a pitcher that had not lost since June 16, was 4-0 lifetime against them and had given up just one run over his previous 22 innings.

All that changed Thursday, as Greinke was touched for four runs on six hits and a walk over seven innings of work.

"Zack had pretty good stuff. I thought we had pretty good energy, we just couldn't do anything with their guy. Mat (Latos) has quality stuff," said Dodgers manager Don Mattingly.

Paul took a fastball over the wall in right-center in the first inning, and Todd Frazier doubled and scored on Cesar Izturis' two-out single to give the Reds a 2-0 lead in the second.

The Dodgers' first run came as a result of Yasiel Puig's aggressive baserunning. The rookie phenom hit a single to center field, and Shin-Soo Choo threw behind him at first, only to have his throw bounce into the stands.

Puig advanced to third and scored on an Adrian Gonzalez groundout, but that was all the hosts could manager against Latos until the eighth.

Greinke, who was in search of his 100th career win, made a nice play to double-up Joey Votto in the sixth inning, but immediately hit Brandon Phillips, threw a wild pitch and coughed up a home-run ball to Bruce, who muscled it into the bleachers in left-center.

Los Angeles, which went 0-for-9 with runners in scoring position, got a run back in the eighth on another Gonzalez groundout, this one brining home Carl Crawford following his leadoff double.

Manny Parra recorded the final out of the eighth behind Latos, and Choo added an insurance run in the ninth with an RBI base hit up the middle off Carlos Marmol.

Aroldis Chapman worked around a single and a walk in the ninth to pick up his 24th save.

Game Notes

Votto went 2-for-4 and has reached base safely in 37 straight games, the third longest streak in the majors this year ... Dodgers shortstop Hanley Ramirez extended his on-base streak to 33 games with a single in the fourth ... Greinke came in 6-0 with a 2.09 ERA in eight career starts at Dodger Stadium ... The Dodgers were looking for their longest winning streak since a nine- game run from May 9-18, 2010. They had scored eight or more runs in four consecutive games.
