LOS ANGELES -- Luis Cruz doubled home the go-ahead run in his second game with the Dodgers and stole home on the next pitch, leading Los Angeles to a 3-1 victory over Johnny Cueto and the Cincinnati Redson Tuesday night.
It was 1-all in the seventh when James Loney singled with one out. Cruz followed with a drive to the gap in left-center and Loney barely getting his foot on the plate after catcher Ryan Haniganstuck out his left leg to block him.
Cruz continued to third on the relay from shortstop Zack Cozart, then broke for home as Tony Gwynn Jr. tried to put down a suicide-squeeze bunt. Cueto's pitch sailed off the tip of Hanigan's glove and to the backstop.
