Reds' Latos delivers win, shout-out to wife on her b-day

On Thursday afternoon, Mat Latos won another game for the Cincinnati Reds. That's been a common theme since the right-hander joined the club last season, compiling a 27-8 record in a Reds uniform.
But this win was different - it fell on his wife's birthday.

Latos even sent a shout-out to his wife pregame - he changed his walkup music for the game to Dallas' favorite band (Deftones). That gesture did not go unnoticed, as she sent a video of the game's warmups through Vine.
Even the family cat got in on the celebration - and yes, they have a cat named "Cat Latos".

Thanks for the win, Mat, and happy birthday Dallas!
