LOS ANGELES, Calif. (AP) – Hyun-Jin Ryu took a perfect game into the eighth inning and the Los Angeles Dodgers held on to beat the Reds 4-3 Monday.

The Reds hit only three balls out of the infield before Todd Frazier’s leadoff double down the left-field line on an 0-1 pitch in the eighth. That followed a three-run seventh by the Dodgers in which Ryu ran the bases and scored.

The left-hander from South Korea came close to making the Dodgers the first team in major league history with consecutive no-hitters. Beckett won 6-0 in Philadelphia on Sunday.

Los Angeles pitchers tossed a club-record 17 straight hitless innings dating to Saturday, when Paul Maholm got it started against the Phillies.

The Cardinals’ Adam Wainwright became the National League’s first eight-game winner by dominating Cincinnati and St. Louis pulled away to a 4-0 victory over the Reds on Sunday night that completed another series win by the Cards, who have won 10 of the last 11 series between the two NL Central rivals.

    Rice replaces ice in India bucket challenge

    An Indian school boy eats a midday meal provided free at a government school in Hyderabad, India, Thursday, Sept. 5, 2013. India has offered free midday school meals since the 1960s in an effort to persuade poor parents to send their children to school, a program that reaches some 120 million children. The country now plans to subsidize wheat, rice and cereals for some 800 million people under a $20 billion scheme to cut malnutrition and ease poverty.

    The famous "ice bucket" challenge is inspiring thousands of Indians to follow suit, but with a twist - they are replacing ice with rice to help the country's hungry people.
