CINCINNATI — The Cincinnati Reds, playing under a cloud caused by the public release of a report alleging Manager Pete Rose bet extensively on baseball, rallied to beat the Dodgers, 5-3, Monday.
Rose, granted a temporary restraining order Sunday that delayed Monday's scheduled hearing in New York before baseball Commissioner Bart Giamatti, did not appear on the field during the game.
Earlier in the day, baseball appealed the Ohio state court ruling. Later, a 225-page report prepared for Giamatti about Rose was released.
Bo Diaz hit a tiebreaking, two-run homer in the seventh inning off Tim Belcher (4-7).
Reliever Rob Dibble (6-2) got the victory. John Franco went one inning for his 20th save.
Todd Benzinger drew a leadoff walk in the seventh and Diaz homered over the left-field fence.
Kirk Gibson hit a two-run homer in the Los Angeles first.
Willie Randolph singled with one out against Rick Mahler and Gibson hit his eighth home run of the season.
The Dodgers made it 3-0 in the fourth when Eddie Murray led off with a double and scored on a single by Jeff Hamilton.
Paul O'Neill tied the score with a three-run homer in the sixth.
Herm Winningham and Barry Larkin singled and O'Neill connected against Tim Leary for his 12th home run
