Latos fans 13, Reds beat Brewers 3-1

Mat Latos fanned a personal-best 13 batters in his second career complete game Monday night, leading the Cincinnati Reds to a 3-1 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers.

The NL Central leaders won for only the second time in seven games. The defending champion Brewers have dropped eight of 13, falling 7 1/2 games back — one shy of their season high.

Latos (6-2) gave up four hits, including a drive by Norichika Aoki that made it 63 straight games at Great American Ball Park with at least one homer. Latos also singled twice, matching a career high.

Jay Bruce doubled home two runs in the fourth off Yovani Gallardo (6-6), who allowed four hits over six innings. Brandon Phillips had an RBI double in the eighth.
