The win also put an end to an 8 game losing streak the Dodgers had inside Great American Ballpark.

Los Angeles will throw LH Brett Anderson Wednesday night. The Reds will counter with LH David Holmberg.

Los Angeles Dodgers

The Dodgers finally got some contributions from Justin Turner and Jimmy Rollins in the series opener on Tuesday. Turner blasted a 2 run home run and Jimmy Rollins also threw in a 2 run shot along with a double. The duo had struggled as they had just 3 hits combined in the previous 6 games.

The offense came after a stretch that saw Los Angeles his .163 as a team during their losing streak while totaling only 9 runs combined.

The offensive slump comes as a bit of surprise as the Dodgers have averaged well above 4 runs per game all season long. With bats like Yasiel Puig, Adrian Gonzalez and others, they have given themselves one of the best offensive staffs in the league.

Looking to capture a series win, the Dodgers turn to Brett Anderson on Wednesday.

Anderson was one of the Dodgers hottest pitchers from the middle of June to the beginning of August. He went 4-2 with an ERA of only 2.43 in 9 starts during that span.

However, he is now just 1-2 with an ERA of 6.88 over his last 3.

He faced these Reds on August 15th and allowed 3 runs in 6.0 innings of work. The Dodgers went on to win that game 8-3.

Cincinnati Reds

The Reds only hopes this season are to play spoiler down the stretch here. Beating the Dodgers, whom they have had great success against, is one of those opportunities.

Cincinnati has been enduring tough times though as they’ve dropped 10 of their last 11 overall and won just 1 of the 11 series’ played following the all star break.

The main reason behind their struggles has been the lack of starting pitching.

Over their last 14 games, the starters have pitched past the 6th inning just twice and their ERA sits at 7.01.

LH David Holmberg has followed that suit as he’s been a mess lately.

The LH has lost 3 straight and comes off an outing that saw him allow 5 runs on 11 hits against the Diamondbacks. He faced the Dodgers this season and lasted just 2.0 innings allowing 7 runs.
