Bruce homers, Reds beat slumping A's 3-1

By JOE KAY

CINCINNATI (AP) - Jay Bruce homered and made a run-saving catch on the warning track, and Mat Latos pitched into the eighth inning against Oakland's slumping lineup on Tuesday night, leading the Cincinnati Reds to a 3-1 victory over the Athletics.

The Reds had dropped 7 of 9 and were coming off what players called an embarrassing weekend against St. Louis - losses of 13-3 and 15-2.

They found an American League team struggling even more. The West-leading Athletics have lost 5 of 6.

Latos (11-3) allowed four hits through 7 1-3 shutout innings, leaving him 3-0 in his last four starts. Aroldis Chapman gave up Derek Norris' two-out homer in the ninth while getting his 26th save in 30 chances.
