Reds get a game
Dodgers win 5-3 and the Reds are now only half a game back.
Good chance to move back in first tomorrow with Cardinals facing Kershaw.

Hamilton ROY & GG
Harper and Trout get a lot of attention, and rightfully so, but Manny Machado should be discussed more as well. Leading the league in doubles and he just hit another.
"Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."
