Dodgers catcher Yasmani Grandal had a career-high eight runs on two home runs and reaching base six times in leading LA over the hapless Milwaukee Brewers 14-4 at Miller Park on Thursday.

The Cuban-born Grandal, a switch-hitter, knocked in two runs in the sixth inning. He belted a three-run homer in the eighth and another three-run blast in the ninth inning.

On December 18, 2014, he was traded to the Dodgers in the Matt Kemp trade with the San Diego Padres.

The Cincinnati Reds have acquired right-handed starting pitcher Mat Latos from the San Diego Padres for a package of four players: infielder Yonder Alonso, right-handed starting pitcher Edinson Volquez, minor league catcher Yasmani Grandal and right-hander Brad Boxberger.

Alonso did have a position in Cincinnati with Joey Votto at first base. Volquez was a big disappointment at 5-7 with a 5.71 ERA.

The Reds wanted a top of the rotation pitcher and they have one in Latos. The 23-year-old went 9-14 with a 3.47 ERA for the Padres in 2011. He finished among the NL leaders in ERA and strikeouts.
