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.
