Reds roll to 10th straight win, beat Rockies 7-2

DENVER (AP) - The Cincinnati Reds posted their 10th straight win and matched their best streak in 14 years, with Mat Latos pitching eight strong innings and Drew Stubbs homering Sunday in a 7-2 victory over the Colorado Rockies.

The Reds' winning streak is their longest since they won 10 straight in 1998. They are two short of the franchise record, done twice and last accomplished in 1957.

Cincinnati opened a three-game lead over Pittsburgh in NL Central, its biggest edge since mid-June.

Jay Bruce also homered and Stubbs drove in three runs. Ryan Hanigan and Zack Cozart each had two hits each for the Reds, who have won 17 of 19.
