Latos, Reds salvage final game in Arizona, 4-2

PHOENIX (AP) - Mat Latos matched his career high with 13 strikeouts and the Cincinnati Reds salvaged the finale of their 3-game series in Arizona with a 4-2 victory over the Diamondbacks on Sunday.

Shin-Soo Choo hit a leadoff home run and Brandon Phillips added a two-run shot in the first inning off Randall Delgado (0-1).

That was plenty of offense for Latos (7-1), who allowed a run on six hits with one walk in 7 2-3 innings.

Latos, coming off his first loss in 21 starts, didn't strike anyone out in the first two innings, then fanned 13 over the next 5 2-3.

After blowing a save in Cincinnati's 4-3 loss on Saturday, Aroldis Chapman gave up a run in a shaky ninth but still got his 19th save.

    The time has come for my third and final mock draft. Free agency is mostly complete and while the Saints still have some needs they will remain committed to their ‘best player’ approach. Here’s my best guess on how things shake out. Round One (27th) Mike Gesicki, Tight End Penn St. First things first, I really wanted cornerback Josh Jackson with this selection. I just don’t think he is going to be around at 27. If he is available, then the Saints sh...More >>
