Dodgers utilityman Jerry Hairston Jr. was in the Washington Nationals' spring training camp with Bryce Harper last year. Hairston spent a few more days with Harper during the season while on a minor-league rehabilitation assignment with the Nationals' double-A affiliate. Harper, 19, will make his major league debut on Saturday night at Dodger Stadium. But as amazed as Hairston is at how advanced Harper is at 19, that isn't what he thinks about when he looks at him. “I look at it different,” Hairston said.

Things had been going so incredibly well for the Dodgers, it had to be humbling. It had to be foreign and irritating, but mostly humbling. The Dodgers, who have been the best team in the major leagues for more than two months, were swept by the Cincinnati Reds, falling, 3-2, Sunday for the third consecutive game to drop their fourth game in a row. The Dodgers had not lost four games in a row since an eight-game losing streak in early May....

They started the season with a roster full of prospects and castoffs. A team of up-and-comers and down-and-outers. But Tuesday, a leadoff ninth-inning home run by 23-year-old Jay Bruce, the team's youngest regular, gave Cincinnati a 3-2 victory over the Houston Astros, clinching the National League Central Division title and sending the Reds to the postseason for the first time in 15 seasons. "It's unbelievable," Bruce said after his long homer, his 22nd, erased nine consecutive losing seasons for the Reds.

CINCINNATI - Apparently, winning isn't all it's cracked up to be. In fact, sometimes it's better to lose. At least that was Clayton Kershaw's theory after the Cincinnati Reds completed a three-game sweep of the Dodgers on Sunday, winning the final game, 3-2, on Ryan Hanigan's walk-off double with one out in the ninth inning. It was the Dodgers' second walk-off loss in as many days, their fourth loss in as many games and their fifth consecutive loss against a team with a winning record.

CINCINNATI--Chris Iannetta lined a two-out, two-run single to left field in the top of the 13th inning Monday to lift the Angels to a 3-1 victory over the Cincinnati Reds in a marathon of a season opener at Great American Ball Park. Angels closer Ernesto Frieri struck out two of four in a scorelss bottom of the 13th to cap a brilliant effort from the Angels, who got six scoreless innings from relievers Garrett Richards, Sean Burnett, Kevin Jepsen, Scott Downs and Mark Lowe. The 4-hour, 45-minute game was the longest season opener in Angels franchise history, topping the 4-hour, 23-minute, 14-inning opener against the Chicago White Sox in 1966.

The Dodgers beat the Cincinnati Reds by a mere run Friday, yet sort of went the dominant route. They used their most dominant pitcher, Clayton Kershaw, and most dominant hitter for the past two months, Hanley Ramirez, to edge the Reds, 2-1, before a Dodger Stadium crowd of 51,841 to maintain their half-game lead in the National League West. Kershaw pushed his record to 10-6 with the victory but, locked in a pitching duel with Cincinnati's Homer “No Hit” Bailey, it was far from easy.

at Arizona 5, Washington 0: Dan Haren (6-4) tossed seven sharp innings and Orlando Hudson hit a three-run homer for the Diamondbacks, who posted consecutive shutouts for the first time since May 2006. Haren gave up four hits, walked three and struck out five. at Philadelphia 7, Florida 5: Chase Utley hit his major league-leading 20th home run, Pat Burrell had a tiebreaking, two-run double and the Phillies rallied to move back into first in the NL East. at Cincinnati 6, Atlanta 2: Ken Griffey Jr. remained one home run shy of 600, but Jay Bruce had a solo shot and a run-scoring single to lead the Reds.

Zack Greinke took an extra moment to huddle with Dodgers catcher A.J. Ellis on Thursday night after throwing a wild pitch to Cincinnati Reds slugger Jay Bruce. Greinke, confident with his team in a six-game winning streak and unbeaten himself in five decisions at Dodger Stadium, told Ellis he believed he could retire Bruce with a curveball. "I thought it was the right pitch, just didn't work," Greinke said after his sixth-inning offering was smacked over the left-center field wall for Bruce's 21st home run of the season in the Reds' 5-2 victory.

The All-Snubbed team It's called the All-Star game - but not all the stars who deserve to play in the exhibition will be at Citi Field on Tuesday. Some missed their flights to New York because of the rule requiring each team to have at least one All-Star representative. (Raise your hand if you really think Everth Cabrera and Jason Castro are All-Stars.) And at least three position players in the American League West may have lost their spots to an East Coast bias that resulted in just two position players from the division being chosen as All-Stars.

CINCINNATI - Manager Mike Scioscia had the matchup he wanted. Reliever Scott Downs made the pitch he wanted. First baseman Albert Pujols got the ground ball he wanted. For so much that seemed to go right for the Angels on the decisive play of Wednesday night's game, so much went wrong, the net effect a 5-4 walk-off loss to the Cincinnati Reds in Great American Ball Park. With Shin-Soo Choo - who was hit by a Downs pitch to start the ninth - on second, one out and first base open, Scioscia had Downs, the veteran left-hander, pitch to one of baseball's most prolific sluggers, left-handed-hitting Joey Votto, the 2010 National League most valuable player.

Win out. That's pretty much what's left for the Dodgers after they fell 6-0 to the Reds and Mat Latos on Saturday. The Dodgers now trail the Cardinals, who won Saturday, by three games for the final wild-card spot. And the Dodgers have only 10 games left in their regular season. They could win out and still not make it, but winning every single game has to be their objective now. It will take a season-best effort to even pull that off. Their longest winning streak of the year is only six games, last accomplished in May. Back then, of course, they had the best record in baseball.
