If the Cincinnati Reds are to repeat as National League Central Division champions, third baseman Scott Rolen will have to hat a hot bat; his fielding is always there.

The six-time All-Star had three hits and drove in three runs leading the Reds over LA  7-2 on Wednesday afternoon for their first three-game sweep of the Dodgers since 2004.

He had two RBI doubles and a run-scoring single off Ohio native Chad Billingsley.

The Reds were 2-8 on a recent trip to Cleveland, Philadelphia and Atlanta in May. But were able to finish a seven-game trip to San Francisco and Los Angeles at 5-2.

The Reds also were victorious on manager Dusty Baker’s 62nd birthday and he said it had been 10 years since that had happened.

Ryan Hanigan and Fred Lewis both knocked in two runs apiece to support Rolen at the plate.

Travis Wood ups his record to 5-4 as he pitched six innings, allowing one run, five hits and five walks.

Billingsley drops to 5-6 after struggling through four innings. He allowed seven runs, nine  hits and four walks.

Andre Eithier has been the talk of Major League Baseball all season long. He still may be but not about his hitting streak.

Eithier’s hitting streak ended at 30 games, one short of the Dodgers’ franchise record set by Willie Davis in 1969.

The Dodgers rightfielder went 0-for-4 with a first-inning walk, but he struck out in his final at bat in the eighth inning.

George Culver recognized by Bakersfield community

When you look at the major league pitching career of righthander George Culver, there’s nothing that really stands out, other than a no-hitter.

He was 48-49 with a 3.62 ERA with 451 strikeouts.

Culver was selected by the New York Yankees in 1963 and made his pro debut for the Cleveland Indians on September 7, 1966. He enjoyed a nine-year career pitching for the Indians, Reds, Cardinals, Astros, Dodgers and Phillies. He spent 1975 with the Nippon Ham Fighters in the Japanese League.

Despite an up-and-down career, the Bakersfield, California community honored Culver for his years of service at the California State University-Bakersfield and with the minor league teams.

Culver, one-time manager of the Bakersfield Outlaws, served as a roving pitching coach within the Dodgers organization in 2010, his final season as an active coach in pro baseball.

Culver became a Cincinnati Red following the 1967 season, when Cleveland traded him in exchange for outfielder Tommy Harper. In 1968, he pitched a no-hitter against the Phillies on July 29.

After his playing career ended in 1975, Culver spent time as a minor league manager, including time as a manger of the Outlaws in 1978. He spent the next 31 years serving the Bakersfield community as an advocate for baseball, helping in fundraising for various programs and organizations.

NL DIVISION PLAYOFFS: Giants beat Braves; will battle Phillies for NL crown

One of the National League’s most offensive challenging teams, the San Francisco Giants, who have trouble scoring runs but somehow find a way to win, will be battling for the National League pennant.

They defeated the Atlanta Braves on Monday night, 3-2 to advance to the National League Championship series for the first time since 2002.

Their rookie pitcher, 21-year-old Madison Bumgarner pitched six strong innings. Cody Ross, a waiver-wire pickup during the late season from Florida, homered and drove in the go-ahead run with a two-out single in the seventh, and the Giants bullpen headed by closer Brian Wilson, closed the door.

While the Giants were celebrating their win, they found time to salute Atlanta Braves manager Bobby Cox who is retiring.

The 69-year-old Cox, retires as the fourth winningest manager in baseball history (2,504 regular-season wins). But in 16 trips to the playoffs, 15 with Atlanta and 1 with Toronto, his team’s only won one World Series title in 1995.

Matter-of-fact, the Braves have yet to win at Turner Field with a series on the line, losing for the eighth straight time in that situation since the ballpark opened to baseball in 1997.

Braves starter Derek Lowe, no stranger to playoff baseball, having pitched for Boston and the Dodgers, threw no-hit baseball into the sixth inning but to no avail.
