Billingsley Homers, Dodgers Beat Reds 9-6

CINCINNATI (AP) — Dodgers pitcher Chad Billingsley drove in a career-high three runs with a homer, a double and a bases-loaded walk, and Los Angeles beat the Cincinnati Reds 9-6 on Sunday to extend its domination of the series.

Matt Kemp added a two-run homer — his third in a sequence of five at-bats — as the Dodgers improved to 28-10 against the Reds since 2006.

Billingsley (5-4) lasted only five innings, but helped himself build a big lead.

He hit a solo homer — the second of his career — in the second inning off Travis Wood (4-4). Billingsley drew a bases-loaded walk during the Dodgers’ three-run third. His RBI double to the warning track in right field ended Wood’s outing in the fifth and made it 8-4.
