Reds fall to Dodgers despite Votto's return
CINCINNATI (AP) Josh Beckett allowed two hits in six shutout innings and four Dodgers had two hits each as Los Angeles defeated the Cincinnati Reds 6-1 Tuesday night in a game delayed more than 2 hours by rain.
Yasiel Puig, Adrian Gonzalez, Andre Ethier and Justin Turner led the Los Angeles offense with two hits apiece. Beckett got into the act with a single of his own for the Dodgers, who have won three straight and four of five.
Beckett (4-3), who had endured two consecutive 2-1 losses since his no-hitter in Philadelphia on May 25, finished with seven strikeouts and one walk. He also hit a batter with a pitch.
Mike Leake, reached for a season-high five runs in his previous start Thursday against San Francisco, allowed five more and a season-high nine hits in 5 1-3 innings. Leake (3-6), who lost seven games last season, had seven strikeouts and one walk.
