LOS ANGELES (AP) — Joc Pederson doubled in the tying run and then scored the go-ahead run on a throwing error in the fourth inning, helping the Los Angeles Dodgers to an 8-2 victory over Cincinnati on Tuesday night, extending the Reds’ season-high skid to nine straight.
The Dodgers’ eight-game winning streak against the Reds is their longest active run against any opponent and their most since beating the Reds nine straight times in 2008-09.
Mike Bolsinger (1-1) allowed two runs and three hits in 5 2/3 innings of a spot start, having been brought back from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Monday in place of injured Chin-hui Tsao, who went on the 15-day disabled list. Bolsinger struck out six and walked one.
Daniel Wright (0-1) made his major league debut, giving up four runs and seven hits in 5 1/3 innings.
