LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Mat Latos threw 7 2-3 innings and the Cincinnati Reds got home runs from Jay Bruce and Xavier Paul to beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-2 on Thursday night, ending the NL West leaders' six-game winning streak.
Latos (10-3) allowed two runs -- one earned -- and eight hits with four strikeouts en route to his first victory at Dodger Stadium after going 0-5 with a 3.95 ERA in his five previous starts at Chavez Ravine.
Latos is 24-7 in 54 starts since Cincinnati acquired him from San Diego in December 2011. The last time he faced the Dodgers back on Sept. 22 at Cincinnati, he pitched eight innings in a 6-0 victory that clinched the Reds' second NL Central title in a three-year span.
Aroldis Chapman got three outs for his 24th save in 27 chances.
Zack Greinke (8-3) gave up four runs and six hits over seven innings in his second attempt at his 100th major league victory. The loss was the right-hander's first in his last six decisions overall, and first in seve...

Mesoraco following a game-tying home run in May.Everybody’s writing about the recent success that Cincinnati Reds catcher Devin Mesoraco has been having this month.
First, Red Reporter talks about how Mesoraco, kind of forgotten, may well become the right-handed impact bat the Reds have sorely needed.
[T]he 2013 Reds lack an offensive player who is outperforming expectations. They’re...
This week we will take a look at third baseman Tanner Rahier and relief pitcher Abel De Los Santos.
Ryan Ludwick was sent out on rehab assignment with the class A Dayton Dragons yesterday while they played the Lansing Lugnuts. Ludwick was the DH and had three plate appearances. He popped out, walked, and singled. Nice that he’s trying out all the possibilities. Perhaps tonight he could try out that home run muscle.
Ludwick has been out of the major league line-up...
Manny Parra was not always my favorite player. Some of you might remember when I said the Reds should give out booze, like they do with 11 strikeout pizza, when Parra and Alfredo Simon pitched in the same game. Parra has been pretty great lately, something I attributed to his Boston Rob like facial hair. After he got out of a late inning jam in the Reds win last night, I made more...

Shin-Soo Choo of the Reds will probably never hear the end of this one, especially from his teammates. Friday night when his Reds took on the Dodgers, Choo took off from first on a hit and run and paid a little too much attention to Hanley Ramirez of the Dodgers who pretended he had grabbed the ball as it flew by him and into center field. Skip Schumacher also played an integral...
Shin-Soo Choo is a career .289 hitter and bats leadoff for a playoff contender. But on Thursday night, he fell victim to two of the oldest tricks in the book, making the Reds-Dodgers game look like something out of "The Bad News Bears."
The trouble for the Cinicannati center fielder started in the fourth inning, as he fell victim to a baserunning ploy by Los Angeles rookie...

[Box Score - Game Two]
The Reds played 18 innings of baseball yesterday, and I made sure to see all of them. Nothing especially great happened in the second game after another big win in the first. The Reds left 12 men on base and squandered opportunities all (late) night long.
In the first game, the Reds rolled to another victory with Devin Mesoraco, Shin...
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- The Cincinnati Reds found just about every way to beat the San Francisco Giants this season after falling in frustrating fashion to the World Series champions last October.
Mike Leake led the latest -- and perhaps wackiest -- performance Wednesday night, pitching six-plus innings of wildly effective ball in Cincinnati's 8-3 victory over San Francisco.
NEW YORK (AP) -- Atlanta Braves right-hander Humberto Carpio and Cincinnati Reds outfielder Yoel Noel have each been suspended 50 games for violations of baseball's minor league drug program.
Carpio and Noel were each penalized Friday after testing positive for anabolic steroids. Carpio tested metabolites of Stanozolol and Noel for metabolites of Nandrolone.
Both players were...
Bronsoning. Sticking your finger in your friends drink and then yelling out "Bronsoned" to pay homage to Reds pitcher Bronson Arroyo!
Taking a look at who could draw interest at the trade deadline if the Reds decide to make a move.
A San Francisco starter lasted more than three innings, and the Giants finally got a win against Cincinnati this year, as San Francisco beat the Reds 5-3 in Game 2 of the doubleheader on Tuesday.
For the second straight game, the Giants got on the board first. Despite the lackluster offense of the past two days, this line-up proved its resiliency.
“I think we’ve just got a group...
Catcher A.J. Ellis went to the mound for a chat with Zack Greinke in the sixth inning as Jay Bruce stood near home plate with a 2-2 count on him.
The right-hander's next delivery ended up beyond the fence in left-center field.
Bruce's 21st homer of the season, along with a solo shot in the first by Xavier Paul, powered Mat Latos and the Cincinnati Reds to a 5-2 victory...
