LOS ANGELES (AP) Billy Hamilton had a career-high four hits, including a solo homer, to help the Cincinnati Reds defeat former teammate Mat Latos and the NL West-leading Los Angeles Dodgers 10-3 Thursday night for just their third victory in nine games.
Hamilton went 4 for 4 with four runs scored and two RBIs for the Reds, who piled up 15 hits while never trailing against a team coming off consecutive shutout victories.
Rookie Keyvius Sampson (2-1) allowed two runs and five hits in five innings. The right-hander struck out three and walked one in winning his second straight.
