LOS ANGELES (AP) ― Ryan Theriot, Andre Ethier, Jay Gibbons and Matt Kemp all homered in a span of just five batters against Cincinnati’s Johnny Cueto in his first start after serving a seven-game suspension, and the Los Angeles Dodgers snapped the Reds’ seven-game winning streak with an 8-5 victory Saturday night in Manny Ramirez’s long-awaited return to the lineup.

Chad Billingsley (10-7) allowed three runs and seven hits over 5 2-3 innings and struck out seven. The Dodgers had homered only four times in the right-hander’s previous nine starts combined, and totaled just eight runs over his previous six outings — including consecutive 2-0 wins over the Giants and Padres.

Jonathan Broxton, the fourth Dodgers pitcher, worked a perfect ninth for his 22nd save in 27 chances.
