(AP) Billy Hamilton stole second in the 10th inning to set up Todd Frazier's game-winning single, helping the Cincinnati Reds beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 4-3 on Saturday.


Ryan Ludwick opened the Cincinnati 10th with a leadoff walk against Brian Wilson (1-1). Reds manager Dusty Baker then went to the dynamic Hamilton, and the speedy prospect took second as catcher A.J. Ellis dropped the ball while taking it out of his glove.


The 22-year-old Hamilton, who set a professional record with 155 steals in the minors last season, has yet to make a plate appearance in the majors, but is 4 for 4 on steal attempts since he was promoted on Monday.


Frazier followed with a line-drive single into right field to give Cincinnati five wins in its last six games. J.J. Hoover (4-5) got three outs for the victory.


Yasiel Puig hit a two-run homer for NL West-leading Los Angeles, which has lost three straight. Adrian Gonzalez went 4 for 5 and A.J. Ellis also had two hits.


Reds utilityman Cesar Izturis, starting at second base in place of the injured Brandon Phillips, tied his season high with three hits, including a tying double against reliever Paco Rodriguez with one out in the seventh inning.
