Cincinnati, OH (Sports Network) – Todd Frazier singled in the game-winning run
in the bottom of the 10th inning as the Cincinnati Reds defeated the Los
Angeles Dodgers, 4-3, in the second game of a three-game set.

Brian Wilson (1-1) entered the game for Los Angeles in the 10th and walked
Ryan Ludwick. Billy Hamilton came in to pinch-run for Ludwick and proceeded
to steal second before scoring the deciding run on Frazier’s grounder that got
through the infield.

Cesar Izturis finished with three hits, including a double, to go with a run
scored and an RBI for the Reds, who have won three in a row.

J.J. Hoover (4-5) was credited with the win after allowing only one hit in the
top of the 10th. Cincinnati starter Mat Latos surrendered three runs across
seven innings, while Zack Greinke allowed two runs over six frames in the
start for Los Angeles.

Yasiel Puig stroked a two-run homer and Adrian Gonzalez went 4-for-5 in the
setback, LA’s third in a row.

The Dodgers opened the scoring in the first. Latos hit Puig with a pitch and
gave up a single to Gonzalez before Hanley Ramirez singled on a line drive to
left to bring in Puig from second.

After singles from Izturis and Joey Votto in the home half, Jay Bruce singled
to left field to plate Izturis. Votto came home on a base hit from Ludwick to
give the Reds a 2-1 lead.

Puig belted a line drive over the left-field wall to score A.J. Ellis and put
the Dodgers back on top in the top of the second.

Greinke got out of a one-out, bases-loaded jam in the fifth by fanning Bruce
and Ludwick in succession to end the inning.

The Reds tied the game in the seventh. Shin-Soo Choo singled up the middle and
scored when Izturis smacked a line-drive double to left field.
