CINCINNATI (AP) — Not only did Los Angeles lose to the lowly Cincinnati Reds yet again Jimmy Howard Jersey , this time former Dodgers prospects did in their former team.Former Los Angeles farmhands Brandon Dixon and Scott Schebler homered, and the Dodgers stumbled for the second straight night in a 3-1 loss Tuesday night.“Two days ago, things were great,” Los Angeles manager Dave Roberts said. “I don’t have an answer for the Reds. Obviously, we don’t. I wish I had an answer. We felt good about this series coming in. We were prepared. We can’t solve the riddle of their pitching. Our only thought now is to salvage the series and find a way to get a win.”Defending NL champion Los Angeles is 0-6 against Cincinnati this season. The Dodgers, who lost Monday’s series opener 10-6 to the last-place Reds, remained 1½ games behind NL West-leading Colorado and dropped three games back of St. Louis for the second NL wild card.Los Angeles has lost back-to-back games for the first time since a three-game sweep by St. Louis from Aug. 20-22. Last week the Dodgers lost two of three to the sub-.500 New York Mets.“It’s not complacency,” Roberts said. “If anything, we’re trying too hard. When we put it together Jonathan Ericsson Jersey , we’re very good. Against teams that on paper we should beat, it hasn’t worked out.”Dixon homered in the second inning and Schebler in the third for a 2-0 lead against Hyun-Jin Ryu (4-3). Jose Peraza, another former Los Angeles prospect, had two hits.Dixon, Peraza and Schebler all were acquired by the Reds from Los Angeles as part of the December 2015 three-team trade that sent Todd Frazier from Cincinnati to the Chicago White Sox.“It is fun to play the team you left,” Dixon said. “The win is the most important thing, but you have a chip on your shoulder when you play your former team.”Scooter Gennett had two hits, including a run-scoring single in the fifth inning, and lifted his league-leading average to .321. Gennett is hitting .727 (16 for 22) against the Dodgers this season.Luis Castillo (9-12) allowed one run and four hits in 6 1/3 innings with nine strikeouts. He retired 15 straight batters before Joc Pederson’s one-out homer in the sixth.Raisel Iglesias pitched a hitless ninth for his 26th save in 30 chances Womens Justin Abdelkader Jersey , completing a five-hitter.Dixon, playing in place of a resting Joey Votto, sent a cutter into the upper deck for his fifth home run this season and Schebler hit his 16th home run and third in five games, The drive sailed over the Reds bullpen down the right-field line and clanged off an advertising sign.Ryu (4-3) gave up eight hits in five innings.MOVING AROUNDIn Cincinnati’s last four games, Dixon has started at second base, third base, right field and first base. He is the first Reds player to start four straight games at different positions since Jerry Hairston in September 2008. Dixon also has made two scoreless pitching appearances.STREAK ALIVEPederson’s shot extended the Dodgers’ streak of consecutive games with at least one homer to 19, tops in the majors this season. Pederson snapped a 0-for-13 skid with a single leading off the game.GET THE BALLReds OF Gabriel Guerrero singled in the fourth for his first major league hit.TRAINER’S ROOMDodgers: 3B Justin Turner didn’t start after reaching base in 33 of 34 games since coming off the disabled list on Aug. 2 but pinch hit. “He’s showing signs of fatigue,” manager Dave Roberts said. “He’s had a high workload.”UP NEXTDodgers: RHP Ross Stripling (8-3) starts Wednesday after ace Clayton Kershaw was pushed back to Thursday. Stripling has a 6.14 ERA in 7 1/3 innings in two career appearances against the RedsReds: RHP Anthony DeSclafani (7-4) is 1-3 with a 3.12 ERA in four starts against Los Angeles Luke Glendening Jersey , the last on Aug. 21, 2016. In the years the Chicago Blackhawks were annual Stanley Cup contenders, the Colorado Avalanche seemed to find ways to beat them despite being a perennial lottery team.The script is flipped this season and it’s the Blackhawks who are struggling while the Avalanche are near the top of the Western Conference standings. Chicago can play the role Colorado did for a few years when the two teams meet at Pepsi Center in Denver on Friday night.The Avalanche have a little advantage going into the matchup. Chicago played in Dallas on Thursday night — a 5-2 win over the Stars — so it will be on the second night of a back-to-back against a relatively rested Colorado team. The Avalanche, however, will be shorthanded on defense. Nikita Zadorov suffered a lower-body injury in Wednesday’s 2-1 win over Montreal and will miss at least two games.Article continues below ...“Muscular, so I would consider him day-to-day, but he won’t play in these next two games,” Avalanche coach Jared Bednar told HockeyBuzz.com on Thursday. “I think he just tweaked something.”Colorado (19-10-6) is still very formidable without one of its top defenseman because of the first line of Mikko Rantanen, Nathan MacKinnon and Gabe Landeskog. Rantanen and Landeskog scored the goals in the win over the Canadiens Martin Frk Jersey , and MacKinnon assisted on both.Rantanen and MacKinnon are 1-2, respectively, in scoring in the NHL, and Landeskog leads the team with 23 goals. Their big seasons are a result of coming in as young players and developing their games at the NHL level.That is where the Blackhawks are now after winning three Stanley Cups in six seasons (2010 through 2015). Chicago (12-19-6) is experiencing growing pains, which is one reason why it sits in last place in the Central Division.“Now more than ever, this league is about developing players as you go,” Blackhawks coach Jeremy Colliton told the Chicago Tribune. “It’s younger than ever. You need to continue to bring guys along and teach them how they’re going to have to play to win.”Chicago’s youth development was accelerated by a rash of concussions recently. Goaltender Corey Crawford suffered one against San Jose on Sunday, and center Marcus Kruger was struck by an inadvertent elbow in Tuesday’s game against Nashville. Both are out and the Blackhawks are being cautious with the two.Forward Artem Anisimov missed four games with a concussion suffered Dec. 9 but has returned.“You only have one brain,” Blackhawks defenseman Duncan Keith said. “Any brain trauma http://www.officialredwings.com/authentic-adidas-mike-green-jersey , I don’t know if there’s enough studies out there that show the lasting effects of a concussion and what can happen. So that’s the scary part of concussions, and I think that’s why the awareness we have out there is a good thing now.”With Crawford out, Collin Delia could get the start in goal against the Avalanche after Cam Ward was in net against Dallas. Colorado is going to start Philipp Grubauer, who is 8-2-3 as the No. 2 netminder behind Semyon Varlamov but has a 3.05 goals-against average.Grubauer and Varlamov have struggled of late, but Grubauer is coming off a 35-save performance against Montreal.“Grubi just looked like he was in control of the game, looked real confident and steady in there,” Bednar told HockeyBuzz.com.
