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