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.
