Through three

Dodgers lead 2-0 after three innings.

Reds starter Bronson Arroyo loaded the bases twice and threw 42 pitches (23 for strikes) in the first inning. Dodgers catcher Russell Martin lined a single to center field that scored two.

With one out and Adam Dunn standing on first base in the second inning, Dodgers center fielder Juan Pierre made a sensational grab on a long fly ball by Reds third baseman Juan Castro. Pierre had to sprint to catch the ball and tumbled backward onto the warning track with it secured in his glove.

Arroyo retired the first two batters he faced in the second before allowing a single and a ground-rule double. The Dodgers stranded both runners.

Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips just extended his career-high hitting streak to 14 games with a single to left off L.A. starter Randy Wolf.

Arroyo's pitch count stood at 61 going into the bottom of the third. He retired the Dodgers in order.
