Mat Latos fired his second career complete game, leading the Reds to a 3-1 victory over the Brewers Monday night at Great American Ball Park.  Mat gave up just 1 run on 4 hits with 2 walks and a career high 13 strikeouts.  Tonight’s victory extended his winning streak to 6 games, matching his career high set in 2010.  And while we’re talking about Latos and career highs, he went 2-for-3 at the dish – his third career 2-hit game. 

The Reds scored 3 runs on 7 hits.  Jay Bruce (1-for-4) hit a 2-run double.  Drew Stubbs, in his first game back from the DL, went 2-for-3 with a double, walk and 2 runs scored.  Brandon Phillips ripped an RBI-double. 

The Phillies beat the Pirates, so the Reds extend their lead in the National League Central to 2.0 games.
