CINCINNATI, Ohio -- Johnny Cueto was striking out batters. Joey Votto and Jay Bruce were driving in runs. For one night, the Cincinnati Reds felt like themselves. It hasnt happened that often this season. Cueto matched his career high with 12 strikeouts in six innings, and Votto and Bruce -- the missing core of Cincinnatis batting order much of the season -- each drove in runs Wednesday night, leading the Reds to a 5-0 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers. Cueto (6-5) followed his shortest start of the season with one of his most dominating. He gave up three singles and didnt walk a batter, leaving after his 112th pitch. Cueto lasted only five innings during an 8-0 loss to Philadelphia on Friday. The Dodgers fouled off a lot of pitches, quickly elevating Cuetos pitch count. He lobbied for one more inning but manager Bryan Price decided hed had enough. "Thats the way it was," Cueto said, with trainer Tomas Vera translating. "I wasnt trying to strike everybody out, but they made me throw a lot of pitches." Jonathan Broxton escaped a bases-loaded, one-out threat in the seventh by getting Hanley Ramirez to ground into a double play. "All were trying to do down there is get the outs in the sixth, seventh and eighth innings and let (closer Aroldis Chapman) have the spotlight," Broxton said. "Thats been working most of the year." Votto doubled home a pair of runs off Hyun-Jin Ryu (7-3), who had won his last four starts. Votto hadnt driven in a run since May 10, missing 23 games in between because of a strained muscle above his left knee. Bruce missed two weeks following knee surgery. He hit a solo homer off Ryu, who gave up four runs in six innings. The Reds are hoping that with Votto and Bruce back in the lineup, they can get a lot more out of an offence that ranks second to last in the majors in runs scored. "We have a history here," Price said. "We have a real good understanding that we have players who have accomplished things at a high level here. You saw some of that tonight. Hopefully, itll be a precursor to good things." The loss snapped the Dodgers three-game winning streak, which matched their season high. Theyre 4-2 on a trip that concludes Thursday and 22-13 overall on the road. Dodgers left fielder Matt Kemp was ejected in the second inning by plate umpire Seth Buckminster, a minor league umpire brought up to the majors. Kemp was called out on strikes and continued to argue from the dugout. It was Kemps eighth career ejection and his second this season. Kemp was ejected by Angel Hernandez on April 26 for arguing a called third strike. Cueto faced the minimum 15 batters through five innings -- Dee Gordon singled but was picked off. He also fanned 10 over that span, including five in a row while getting up to 90 pitches. The Dodgers got a pair of singles in the sixth, but Ryu failed to get down a bunt to advance them. Ryu had won his first five decisions on the road this season. When he faced the Reds on May 26 at Dodger Stadium, he took a perfect game into the eighth before settling for a 4-3 victory. He helped the Reds get ahead in the rematch. Ryu walked two batters ahead of Vottos two-out double in the second. Votto scored on Brandon Phillips single. Bruce homered in the sixth for a 4-0 lead.

Subban has picked the right time of the year to go on an offensive tear.(SportsNetwork.com) - The New York Rangers will try to complete a four-game road trip with a perfect record when they visit the Carolina Hurricanes on Saturday for the opener of a home-and-home series. The Rangers have won four straight overall and are 3-0 at the start of their road trip, which began in Western Canada before taking New York to PNC Arena for tonights finale. The Blueshirts, who will host Carolina on Sunday, have completely dominated the Hurricanes in recent years, taking 12 of the past 13 meetings in this series. Carolina was able to halt a six-game home skid against the Rangers when it notched a 3-1 victory on March 11 of last season. However, New York has claimed two straight meetings at Madison Square Garden since then, including a 2-1 shootout victory on Oct. 16. The reigning Eastern Conference champions entered their current swing with a 2-5-1 road record before picking up wins in Vancouver, Edmonton and Calgary. New York outscored the opposition by a combined 12-3 score in those three outings. The Rangers last played on Tuesday when they recorded a 5-2 win over the Flames. Rick Nash scored twice and Derek Stepan chipped in a goal with one assist to help New York sprint to victory. Chris Kreider and Carl Hagelin also lit the lamp for the Rangers, while Henrik Lundqvist turned in a victorious 29-save effort. Nash leads the Rangers in both goals (20) and points (33) this season and enters Saturday riding an 11-game point streak. The winger has amassed eight goals and six helpers during the NHLs longest current point streak. His second goal on Tuesday allowed the 30-year-old Nash to reach the 20-goal mark for the 11th consecutive season. Hes playing so well on both sides of the puck, Kreider said of Nash. Hes not cheating, and thats what makes his scoring so impressive. Lundqvist boasts an 18-9-1 record and 2.15 goals aggainst average and he will get the start tonight.dddddddddddd Backup Cam Talbot, who signed a one-year, $1.45 million extension on Friday, could get the call in the home-and-home finale at MSG. New York is one of several NHL teams dealing with an outbreak of the mumps. Derick Brassard has missed the last two games with the illness, though he could return to action tonight, while fellow forward Lee Stempniak was isolated from the team while being tested for mumps, leaving his status for this game in doubt. Carolina, meanwhile, couldnt blame the mumps for the teams recent 0-6 slide, but the club finally was able to get back in the win column thanks to Thursdays 4-1 victory over the visiting Toronto Maple Leafs. The four goals represented an offensive explosion for the club after it had posted just one goal in each loss during the six-game slide. The Hurricanes began December with a 2-1 home win over Nashville before dropping six straight regulation decisions. Carolina got back on track Thursday by winning the special teams battle to halt Torontos six-game winning streak. Carolina jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first period on goals from Chris Terry and Justin Faulk, who scored while the Hurricanes were short-handed. Andrej Sekeras power-play tally in the third period restored the two-goal lead and Cam Ward finished with 25 saves for the win. Its been a while, said Ward. The guys played great. We got off to a good start. To be able to score the first two goals was a relief. The victory pushed Carolinas home record to 6-7-1. The Hurricanes are just 3-12-2 as the guest and will begin a three-game road trip Sunday in New York. Its unclear if Ward or Anton Khudobin will start the opener of the home-and- home. Ward is 10-12-3 with a 2.46 GAA in his career against the Rangers, while Khudobin is 0-1-1 with a 1.93 GAA in this matchup. ' ' '
