Wood dominates, Dodgers beat Reds 3-1

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.
