AT THE PLATE: Behind home runs from Cuban rookie Alex Guerrero and veteran Adrian Gonzalez, the Dodgers scored 10 runs, their most this spring. Guerrero's home run, a fifth-inning grand slam, came on a 1-and-1 breaking pitch from Jeff Francis — an accomplishment he celebrated with a flip of the bat as he began his jog down the first base line.

ON THE MOUND: Hyun-Jin Ryu became the first Dodger to throw four innings, giving up two runs and striking out three. Relievers Jose Dominguez, Paco Rodriguez and Matt Magill combined to hold the Reds to a run and three hits over the final five innings.

EXTRA BASES: Yasiel Puig came out of the game after two at-bats because of inflammation in his upper back. But Puig and Manager Don Mattingly said he would play in the outfield Thursday in Tempe.

UP NEXT: Angels at noon PST at Tempe. On the air: TV: SportsNet LA, Prime; Radio: 570, 830, 1020, 1330.
