CINCINNATI, Ohio -- Johnny Cueto was striking out batters. Fake Yeezy 350 V3 . Joey Votto and Jay Bruce were driving in runs. For one night, the Cincinnati Reds felt like themselves. It hasnt happened that often this season. Cueto matched his career high with 12 strikeouts in six innings, and Votto and Bruce -- the missing core of Cincinnatis batting order much of the season -- each drove in runs Wednesday night, leading the Reds to a 5-0 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers. Cueto (6-5) followed his shortest start of the season with one of his most dominating. He gave up three singles and didnt walk a batter, leaving after his 112th pitch. Cueto lasted only five innings during an 8-0 loss to Philadelphia on Friday. The Dodgers fouled off a lot of pitches, quickly elevating Cuetos pitch count. He lobbied for one more inning but manager Bryan Price decided hed had enough. "Thats the way it was," Cueto said, with trainer Tomas Vera translating. "I wasnt trying to strike everybody out, but they made me throw a lot of pitches." Jonathan Broxton escaped a bases-loaded, one-out threat in the seventh by getting Hanley Ramirez to ground into a double play. "All were trying to do down there is get the outs in the sixth, seventh and eighth innings and let (closer Aroldis Chapman) have the spotlight," Broxton said. "Thats been working most of the year." Votto doubled home a pair of runs off Hyun-Jin Ryu (7-3), who had won his last four starts. Votto hadnt driven in a run since May 10, missing 23 games in between because of a strained muscle above his left knee. Bruce missed two weeks following knee surgery. He hit a solo homer off Ryu, who gave up four runs in six innings. The Reds are hoping that with Votto and Bruce back in the lineup, they can get a lot more out of an offence that ranks second to last in the majors in runs scored. "We have a history here," Price said. "We have a real good understanding that we have players who have accomplished things at a high level here. You saw some of that tonight. Hopefully, itll be a precursor to good things." The loss snapped the Dodgers three-game winning streak, which matched their season high. Theyre 4-2 on a trip that concludes Thursday and 22-13 overall on the road. Dodgers left fielder Matt Kemp was ejected in the second inning by plate umpire Seth Buckminster, a minor league umpire brought up to the majors. Kemp was called out on strikes and continued to argue from the dugout. It was Kemps eighth career ejection and his second this season. Kemp was ejected by Angel Hernandez on April 26 for arguing a called third strike. Cueto faced the minimum 15 batters through five innings -- Dee Gordon singled but was picked off. He also fanned 10 over that span, including five in a row while getting up to 90 pitches. The Dodgers got a pair of singles in the sixth, but Ryu failed to get down a bunt to advance them. Ryu had won his first five decisions on the road this season. When he faced the Reds on May 26 at Dodger Stadium, he took a perfect game into the eighth before settling for a 4-3 victory. He helped the Reds get ahead in the rematch. Ryu walked two batters ahead of Vottos two-out double in the second. Votto scored on Brandon Phillips single. Bruce homered in the sixth for a 4-0 lead.

With Villarreal currently fourth in La Liga, the trip to El Madrigal looks a daunting one for Jurgen Klopps side. But what can the Reds expect from their opponents?Sky Sports La Liga expert Terry Gibson gives us his verdict… Whats their style of play?Theyre not a team that scores a lot of goals, Gibson told Sky Sports. When they played Real Sociedad at the weekend, both teams have scored 42 goals this season. The difference is that Villarreal have conceded far fewer goals. Thats been their strength.In fact, Villarreal have the third best defence in La Liga with only the top two of Barcelona and Atletico Madrid bettering their efforts. At times, weve been able to compare them to Atletico in terms of their style of play, added Gibson. Theyre a lighter version of that. Villarreal welcome back some of their players in unusual fashion They keep it tight in a 4-4-2. Dont expect them to open up and try to blow Liverpool away in 20 minutes. Thats not their style. Theyre slow burners. Theyll tick over, ease themselves into a game through possession and rely on Cedric Bakambu to break down their defence.Is Bakambu the key man?The summer signing from Bursaspor has certainly made an impression in his first season with the club, scoring 12 goals in La Liga - more than twice as many as any other Villarreal player. But Gibson feels Bakambu needs more support from strike partner Roberto Soldado. Alll of Cedric Bakambus goals in La Liga for Villarreal so far this season Bakambu looks lively which is proving a saviour for them at the moment, he says. Fake Shoes For Sale. Soldado isnt scoring. We keep saying that hes creating and contributing to the partnership but he has to start scoring goals. He has to deliver against Liverpool over the two legs.So are they in form?Im concerned about their upcoming fixture against Liverpool, adds Gibson. I think they are running out of steam. There have been a couple of defeats prior to the game against Real Sociedad - and they werent great against Real Sociedad.Villarreal have had several good runs of form in La Liga, winning five in a row early in the campaign and then repeating that trick either side of Christmas. But Marcelinos men go into this tie having won only two of their last eight league games. Villarreal equal to Liverpool Villarreal manager Marcelino insists his side are a match for Liverpool and feel no pressure. Its an interesting one to call because theyve had that cushion between fourth and fifth and the teams below havent really put on the pressure, says Gibson. They havent really had to stretch themselves in La Liga. Can they turn the form back on? Itll be interesting.Who are the favourites?I would probably put Liverpool as favourites, particularly with the second leg at Anfield, adds Gibson. But Im a little unsure because I want to wait and see whether Villarreal could suddenly kick back into life and be the team they were six weeks ago. We know the importance of European football to a club like Villarreal as its a relatively small club despite their success over the past decade or so. Prior to that, there wasnt much history so a European semi-final against a legendary club like Liverpool is a huge occasion.
