Reliever Showcase

Tuesday night’s 12-3 blowout win over the Reds provided the Dodgers an up-close look at two of the relievers they reportedly are interested in acquiring. David Weathers pitched a hitless seventh inning with one walk, while Arthur Rhodes threw a perfect eighth inning with one strikeout and a fastball in the low-90s. The Dodgers also have interest in Cincinnati closer Francisco Cordero, who hasn’t pitched in the series. By completing a series sweep Wednesday night, the Dodgers could push the Reds a little closer to becoming a seller by the July 31 trade deadline. — Ken Gurnick
