4/16/22 LOS ANGELES, CA — The return of a Southern California baseball phenom in Cincinnati Reds pitcher Hunter Greene was still not enough to slow down the red hot Dodgers on a brisk Saturday night at Dodger Stadium.

The Dodgers' 5-2 win over the Reds still didn't stop the heat brought by Greene, who set a record with 39 pitches 100 mph or faster — most in a single game since pitch tracking began in 2008.

The 22-year-old also threw approximately 13 pitches at 101 mph, which also became a record.

However, the heat cooled off when Greene gave up a two-run homer to Trea Turner that gave Los Angeles a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the sixth inning.

A few batters later Chris Taylor singled to right field off of Reds' Buck Farmer allowing Freddie Freeman and Edwin Rios to score.

Dodgers starter Julio Urías was sensational in his outing as he allowed just one hit in five innings with five strikeouts.

Reds Tyler Naquin grounded out as Jake Fraley scored the team's first run of the game in the top of the ninth inning.

Tommy Pham connected on an RBI single to center field that scored Kyle Farmer.

Dodgers Daniel Hudson came in for Mitch White and picked up his first save after he captured the final two outs of the game.

The Dodgers have won five straight and look to go for the sweep on Sunday afternoon with Andrew Heaney on the mound. For more photos from this game, click on the link below. #mlb #ladodgers #reds #cincinnatireds #treaturner #huntergreene #tgsportstv1 #juliourais #losangelesdodgers
