    Summary of 3 articles · Updated Jun 9, 2014
    The Dodgers like Van Slyke for his versatility. Van Slyke hit two home runs and drove in four, while Dan Haren tossed 5 1/3 solid innings in a 6-2 win over the Reds at Great American Ball Park. Scott Van Slyke drove in a career-high four runs with two homers off struggling left-hander Tony Cingrani, and the Los Angeles Dodgers pulled away to a 6-2 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Monday night, a rare comfortable win in their pitching-dominated series. Van Slyke got the Dodgers on the board by crushing a 3-2 fastball from Cincinnati starter Tony Cingrani 439 feet into the left-center-field seats in the second inning for a 1-0 lead. He led off the second inning with a homer and ended Cingrani's outing with a three-run shot in the fifth that made it 6-2. The Dodgers have gone 3-1 at the start of their seven-game trip to Colorado and Cincinnati despite hip injuries to right fielder Yasiel Puig and second baseman Dee Gordon. Haren had a rough second inning on Monday, in which he gave up back-to-back singles to Brayan Pena and Zack Cozart with two outs, following that up with two wild pitches that allowed Pena to score and tie the score at 1.
