CINCINNATI (AP) — Dodgers manager Dave Roberts didn’t breathe a sigh of relief. He could have.Yasmani Grandal and Justin Turner drove in three runs each Max Kepler Jersey , and Los Angeles beat Cincinnati 8-1 Wednesday to avoid a season sweep by the last-place Reds.Joc Pederson homered for the Dodgers, and Grandal had three hits.“We can beat them,” Roberts said.“When we played them in L.A., they were on a hot streak,” said Grandal, Cincinnati’s 2010 top amateur draft pick. “It didn’t really matter how we played. We were trying to figure out what to do with our guys. We had a lot of guys hurt. It seems like they played us hard all year.”Los Angeles remained 1½ games behind NL West-leading Colorado and pulled within two games of St. Louis for the second NL wild card after the Cardinals lost to Pittsburgh 4-3. The Dodgers open a four-game series in St. Louis on Thursday.“That’s a big series for us,” said Grandal, who finished with three hits. “There’s a chance to make some moves in this series.”The Dodgers had been 0-6 against the Reds and were on the verge of being swept by Cincinnati in a season for the first time.“It’s more important that we got a win,” Roberts said. “Those guys have been making noise all year. Managing to get a win considering where we were at is a good thing.”Cincinnati’s Scooter Gennett went 1 for 4, keeping his league-leading batting average at .321.“We didn’t really worry about sweeping the Dodgers,” Reds interim manager Jim Riggleman said. “We just wanted to win the game at hand.”Left-hander Caleb Ferguson (6-2), the third of seven Dodgers pitchers, struck out three in the fifth.Anthony DeSclafani (7-5) retired the first nine Los Angeles batters before allowing six runs – five earned – five hits and three walks in 4 2/3 innings. He failed to last five innings for the third straight start.“I was rolling,” the right-hander said. “I felt good. It seemed like whenever somebody gets on, I can’t put a stop to it. It’s frustrating. I just have to figure out how to execute pitches. I don’t care how many times you go through the batting order, if you execute your pitches, you’ll get your outs.”Jose Peraza homered in the first, but Pederson tied it 1-1 with a leadoff drive in the fourth, his second two games and 21st this season.“Joc’s homer gave us kind of an exhale,” Roberts said. “I’ve been talking about J.T.’s at bats every night. Yasmani had some good at bats.”Grandal hit a go-ahead double later in the inning, a ball caught by a young fan with a glove reaching over the wall with the ball still in play. Max Muncy scored from first and Reds manager Jim Riggleman argued unsuccessfully he should have been stopped at third, but the umpires’ decision was upheld in a video review.Turner hit a two-run single in a four-run fifth.SINGLEHANDEDPederson homered in back-to-back appearances for the fourth time this year http://www.twinsfanproshop.com/authentic-zach-duke-jersey , pushing the Dodgers’ streak of consecutive games with at least one home run to 20. That is the most for the team since the move to Los Angeles and four shy of the franchise record set by Brooklyn in 1953.SPOTLESS DEBUTReds RHP Jesus Reyes, recalled by Cincinnati on Tuesday, pitched a scoreless eighth inning. In two career appearances, both this season, he’s thrown three hitless innings.SEASON HIGHGrandal had three hits for the sixth time this season and first since July 24 at Philadelphia.UP NEXTDodgers: LHP Clayton Kershaw (7-5) is to make his first start of the season against St. Louis on Thursday. He is 6-5 with a 2.99 ERA in 16 starts against the Cardinals.Reds: RHP Matt Harvey (7-8) limited the Cubs to one run and five hits in 5 1/3 innings of a 10-inning Cincinnati loss on Aug. 24. While the New York Yankees are busy bolstering their roster, their crosstown rival is preparing to offload some of its assets.The New York Mets have a handful of players who could help contenders for the rest of the season, but the price has to be right.Another player mentioned on the trade market in recent days is a former Mets pitcher who has turned his season around in Cincinnati.Milwaukee is at the forefront of some discussions, as it looks to make improvements to challenge the Chicago Cubs for the National League Central crown, while Philadelphia still needs to make upgrades at a few spots.Below is a breakdown of the latest trade buzz swirling around Major League Baseball. Mets Receiving Interest in Cabrera, WheelerThe Mets declared themselves as one of the top sellers when they sent Jeurys Familia to Oakland, and at least two more players could be shipped out of the Big Apple before Tuesday's non-waiver trade deadline.According to SNY's Andy Martino, teams in talks with the Mets for Asdrubal Cabrera expect the shortstop to be dealt soon.Fancred's Jon Heyman expanded on the market for the 32-year-old that includes Arizona, Atlanta, Milwaukee and Philadelphia:Jon Heyman JonHeymanAsdrubal market: dbacks, brew crew, philly, bravos. he鈥檚 had a terrific year under difficult circumstanceCabrera is hitting .277with 18 home runs and 58 RBI for the struggling Mets, and he'd be a welcome addition to any contender in need of a middle infielder.The Brewers need an upgrade at either second base or shortstop, which makes them an ideal trade partner for the Mets, while the other three teams mentioned by Heyman would have to reorganize their respective infielders to fit in Cabrera.Zack Wheeler could be on the move from the Mets as well, as Martino reported the Cubs, Reds and Brewers are interested in the pitcher.Julie Jacobson/Associated PressSince the Cubs recently acquired Cole Hamels Michael Pineda Jersey , they wouldn't need Wheeler as much as the Brewers, who could use a starter after Brent Suter went on the disabled list.With plenty of interest in both Cabrera and Wheeler, the Mets should consider dealing both to get a decent return while not completely blowing up their roster.The Mets would keep Jacob deGrom and Noah Syndergaard and bring in some assets that could help in the future.From the Brewers perspective, it would be a good idea to try and negotiate a package involving Cabrera and Wheeler, as that would improve their roster in two places.If they're able to execute a deal for both players, the Brewers wouldn't have to turn elsewhere to further improve their chances of qualifying for the postseason. Harvey Could Be On The Move AgainMatt Harvey was traded once this season, as the Mets shipped him to Cincinnati in exchange for Devin Mesoraco.Since joining the Reds, Harvey has put together a 5-4 record and a 4.50 ERA in 13 starts.The Brewers, who are exploring every potential deal at the moment, are in ongoing talks with the Reds over Harvey, per MLB Network's Jon Morosi:Jon Morosi jonmorosiSource: Matt Harvey trade talks quot;ongoingquot; between #Brewers and #Reds. MLB MLBNetworkIn addition to Milwaukee, a handful of teams have kept an eye on Harvey, with scouts from six other teams in attendance for his last start, per The Athletic's Jim Bowden:Jim Bowden JimBowdenGMMatt Harvey last start scouts from Boston, Cleveland, LA Dodgers, Phillies, Giants, Cardinals were present (of course some were there to see other players) also Yankees and Braves have shown some type of interest. AVG FB up to 95 mph last 7 starts and GB rate up from 40 to 50%Receiving anything for Harvey has to be seen as a success for the Reds, who gave the 29-year-old an opportunity to rehabilitate his career.The Reds won't bring in a massive haul for Harvey since he could still be seen as damaged goods by some potential suitors, but something is better than nothing.If the Brewers think Wheeler's price is too high, they could ramp up discussions with their fellow NL Central team in their quest to find a replacement for Suter.If interest continues to grow around Harvey in the coming days Fernando Rodney Jersey , the Reds could hike up the price, but for now a pair of prospects might be enough to let him go.Gibson Emerging As Trade ProspectThe Minnesota Twins could be the biggest seller before the non-waiver trade deadline.Infielders Brian Dozier and Eduardo Escobar have been mentioned in trade talks over the last few weeks, while pitcher Kyle Gibson is starting to generate more interest, as Morosi noted:Jon Morosi jonmorosiKyle Gibson鈥檚 trade value continues to rise, after last night鈥檚 superb start at Fenway. He鈥檚 a possibility for #Brewers if ongoing talks with #Twins expand beyond Brian Dozier or Eduardo Escobar. MLBNetwork MLBSince they're looking in every direction to make an improvement, the Brewers talked to the Twins about Dozier and Escobar, and Gibson could be involved in those talks too, as Morosi mentioned.Gibson has jumped on to the radar of contenders with a collection of strong starts in the last month, including an eight-inning outing Thursday against the Boston Red Sox.In his five July starts, Gibson let up 12 earned runs in 33.1 innings, and in three of those starts, he's lasted at least seven innings.Elise Amendola/Associated PressIf the Brewers want to be bold, they could propose a monster deal to the Twins to bring in Dozier, Escobar and Gibson, but that would require a purge of their farm system.However, the Brewers might not be the only suitor for the trio of Minnesota players, which puts the Twins in an ideal position leading up to Tuesday.The more likely scenario for a Brewers-Twins deal features one of the three players being shipped to Milwaukee, while the Twins try to get more prospects from other teams by dangling the others out on the trade market.Follow Joe on Twitter, JTansey90.
