.CINCINNATI (AP) – Left-hander Alex Wood remained unbeaten by pitching four-hit ball over eight innings on Friday night, leading the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 3-1 victory that extended their domination of the Cincinnati Reds. Wood (7-0) lost his shutout when Devin Mesoraco homered in the eighth.
He’s the first Dodgers pitcher to get so deep into a season without a loss since 1985, when Orel Hershiser made his first 11 starts without a loss, according to STATS. Kenley Jansen gave up a double in the ninth while picking up his 14th save. The Dodgers have won six in a row over the Reds, who got swept in LA last weekend.
The Dodgers are 15-3 against Cincinnati since 2015, one of the most dominant streaks in the NL over that time. Cincinnati has dropped seven straight overall, matching its deepest slump of the season.
