Cincinnati.com: A.J. Pollock's 3-run home run helps Los Angeles Dodgers sweep Cincinnati Reds
LOS ANGELES - Sonny Gray allowed two hits against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Wednesday. The second one was costly.
With a runner on second base and two outs in the bottom of the sixth inning, the Reds opted to walk the hot-hitting Cody Bellinger. That brought up A.J. Pollock, the center fielder who signed a four-year, $50 million contract in the offseason.
Pollock lifted an 82-mph curveball into the left-field seats for a three-run homer. That's all the offense the Dodgers needed for a 3-2 victory at Dodger Stadium, completing a three-game sweep over the Reds.

LOS ANGELES - During the fifth inning Wednesday, Reds players started yelling from their dugout about home-plate umpire Nick Mahrley's strike zone after a low strike to Jose Iglesias.
Mahrley looked toward the Reds' dugout and manager David Bell told him to "pay attention to the game." Mahrley immediately ejected Bell, who ran onto the field and argued with Mahrley.
"I didn't say one word the entire game about the strike zone," Bell said.

Red Reporter: Nonexistent offense dooms Sonny Gray, Reds in 3-2 loss to Dodgers
Yes, the 3-run dinger surrendered by Sonny Gray was enough to again see the Cincinnati Reds lose a road game. That said, the way Gray pitched prior to that dinger by A.J. Pollock was nothing short of marvelous.
And let's be honest here - these are the Los Angeles Dodgers here, who have launched so many homers that it's nearly impossible to fathom. We even forget that they like launching homers so damn much that they even traded for Homer Bailey this offseason only to put him in a rocket and launch him out of Dodger Stadium, too.
Dodger Blue: Preview: Cody Bellinger Back In Lineup As Dodgers Aim To Complete 3-Game Sweep Of Reds
The Los Angeles Dodgers have followed a season-worst six-game losing streak by winning three in a row for a second time this year. Their other such stretch grew to a six-game winning streak that predated the losing skid.
A victory Wednesday afternoon gives the Dodgers a sweep of the Cincinnati Reds, who shocked them last season by taking all four games at Dodger Stadium. If L.A. is to do so, it will come with Justin Turner still not in the lineup.
He fouled a pitch off his ankle during Monday's batting practice and suffered hamstring tightness during the game as a result of overcompensating.
Mike Scioscia's Tragic Illness: Dodgers 6, Reds 1: Going streaking (again)
The Dodgers have had a rollercoaster season so far in 2019. They started 8-2, dropped six in a row, and have now won three straight with a 6-1 victory over the Reds tonight.
Things started quickly for the Dodgers as they struck first in the 1st behind singles from Corey Seager, Enrique Hernandez, and Alex Verdugo.
They continued in the 2nd, as by some miracle Rocky Gale reached on a single (don't worry, he still managed to make four outs in four plate appearances today) and then Joc Pederson bombed his eighth dong of the young season to make it 3-0.

Manager David Bell talks about the Reds' 6-1 loss to the Dodgers and his decision to have Tyler Mahle hit with the bases loaded in the 4th inning. Bobby Nightengale, Cincinnati Enquirer
LOS ANGELES - Trailing by three runs to the Los Angeles Dodgers on Tuesday, the Reds loaded the bases in the fourth inning with two outs. Pitcher Tyler Mahle, who had struggled on the mound, walked up to the plate.
Reds manager David Bell said it was a "tough decision." He thought about taking a chance with a pinch-hitter against Dodgers starter Kenta Maeda, but he knew it would put a strain on his bullpen.
