The Reds scored four runs in the first inning -- three coming on Adam Duvall's 28th home run of the season. Jose Peraza added a two-run shot in the fourth.
Brett Anderson started for the Dodgers, but left after three-plus innings with an apparent injury. He was replaced by Grant Dayton, who gave up Peraza's homer.
Heavy rains before the game forced the teams to take batting practice in the cages underneath the stadium.
