Dodgers  6, Reds 3

LOS ANGELES, Calif. (AP) – Andre Ethier drove in the Los Angeles Dodgers’ first four runs with a homer and a bases-loaded triple, and Zack Greinke tied a season high with 11 strikeouts in a 6-3 victory over the Reds on Tuesday night.

Greinke (8-1) allowed three runs, eight hits and no walks in 7 2-3 innings. The 2009 AL Cy Young Award winner was lifted after giving up a two-run homer by Devin Mesoraco on his 104th pitch — ending Greinke’s streak of 22 consecutive starts in which he had allowed fewer than three earned runs. It was the longest such streak since the dead-ball era.

Kenley Jansen followed J.P. Howell out of the bullpen and pitched a perfect ninth for his 16th save.

Alfredo Simon (6-3) threw 70 pitches in 3 2-3 innings, giving up five runs, five hits and four walks.
