CINCINNATI (AP) – Alex Wood took a shutout into the sixth inning, and Justin Turner and Jimmy Rollins each hit two-run home runs as the Los Angeles Dodgers snapped their five-game losing streak with a 5-1 win over the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday night.

Rollins also doubled and scored while the NL West-leading Dodgers matched their run total from their previous four games combined.

The Reds have lost 10 of their last 11 games.

Cincinnati got its leadoff batter on base in four of the first five innings, but never pushed anybody past second with Wood (9-8) on the mound. He left after Brandon Phillips singled with two outs in the sixth, and reliever Chris Hatcher then gave up Todd Frazier’s RBI double.

John Lamb (0-2) allowed three runs in five innings.
