CINCINNATI -- Justin Turner hit a three-run home run, Logan Forsythe added a two-run shot, and left fielder Enrique Hernandez made a game-saving catch in the eighth inning, helping the Los Angeles Dodgers hold on for an 8-7 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on a wild Father's Day afternoon at Great American Ball Park.
The Dodgers (44-26) swept the Reds at Great American Ball Park for the first time since August 2015 and have beaten them eight straight times dating to last season.
The Dodgers led 8-1 in the sixth, but the Reds rallied back against their bullpen.
Adam Duvall hit a solo shot in the sixth off Grant Dayton, Scooter Gennett added a three-run homer in the seventh off Josh Fields, and Eugenio Suarez went deep off Pedro Baez in the eighth to cut the deficit to 8-6.
Billy Hamilton's two-out, RBI double also in the eighth made it a one-run game. Then, with two runners on, Joey Votto made a bid to put the Reds ahead with a deep drive to left field. But Hernandez made the catch before colliding with the wall to end the inning.
Kenley Jansen closed out the win in the ninth for his 15th save to complete the three-game sweep.
Los Angeles homered seven times in the series.
Kenta Maeda (5-3) started for the Dodgers on Sunday and allowed one run and only three hits with a walk and five strikeouts.
Cincinnati (29-39) has lost a season-high nine straight games, its longest streak since an 11-game skid in May of last year.
Bronson Arroyo's comeback after missing more than two seasons following elbow and shoulder surgeries hit a wall on Sunday. The 40-year-old Reds right-hander lasted only three innings, with five earned runs on seven hits with no walks and three strikeouts.
Arroyo (3-6) who gave up nine earned runs in his last start including a six-run second inning, struck out three batters in the first inning on Sunday. After getting two quick outs in the second inning, things unraveled for him.
Austin Barnes singled, Hernandez doubled, then Maeda lined a double to left driving in two runs to put the Dodgers in front 2-0. Joc Pederson's RBI single made the score 3-0.
Forsythe launched a 2-1 pitch from Arroyo into the left-center field bleachers to give the Dodgers a five-run lead. It was his second home run this season.
Maeda retired the first nine batters he faced before Billy Hamilton led off the third with a single. A one-out walk to Joey Votto and single by Adam Duvall loaded the bases with one out. Maeda hit Scott Schebler to drive in a run.
But Yasiel Puig's sliding grab of Eugenio Suarez's hard liner to right helped Maeda escape the inning with just the one run allowed.
The Dodgers scored eight runs after two outs, including Turner's three-run homer off Wandy Peralta in the sixth. It was Turner's third homer this season.
