Monasterios helped build that run with a sacrifice bunt. But when it came time to field one by Drew Stubbs in the fourth, he made a wide throw that pulled first baseman James Loney off the bag. The error proved costly when Phillips rapped a 1-0 pitch through the box for a two-run single that gave the Reds a 3-1 lead.
Loney made only his third error of the season in the fifth. He was following the flight of a one-out popup by Rolen when he tripped over the bag and failed to make the catch as the ball tipped off his glove in foul territory. Rolen took advantage of the prolonged at-bat and singled to left, then stole second, but was stranded at third.
NOTES: Cincinnati SS Orlando Cabrera, who missed his 15th straight game because of a strained muscle on his left side, said he thinks he'll be able to come off the disabled list Sunday when the Reds face LHP Clayton Kershaw. ... This was the fifth time this season that 41-year-old C Brad Ausmus has made consecutive starts behind the plate for the Dodgers. All of those instances have occurred since Aug. 3, the night that Russell Martin sustained a season-ending hip injury while trying to score against San Diego. ... The Dodgers have committed 83 errors -- 35 more than the Reds, who have the fewest in the majors. ... Dodgers RHP Octavio Dotel, who threw three wild pitches in the 10th inning of Wednesday's 3-2 loss to Colorado, retired all six batters he faced and struck out three after two hitless innings by rookie Kenley Jansen.
