The misery continues for the Cincinnati Reds.

Another poor start by Bronson Arroyo doomed them Sunday in an 8-7 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers at Great American Ball Park.

The Reds’ season-long losing streak reached nine games. The Dodgers completed their second three-game sweep of the Reds in those nine games.

Arroyo lasted three innings. He allowed five earned runs.

The Reds rallied from an 8-1 deficit thanks in part to a three-run home run by Scooter Gennett. The comeback stalled in the eight when Joey Votto was robbed of extra bases with two runners on base.
