CINCINNATI, Ohio (AP) - Rafael Furcal had five hits, made a couple of nice plays in thefield and pretty much did everything he could.
Except get six hits. He grounded out in the ninth.
"In a game like this, you want to take advantage," Furcal said."You never know about the next game. You could go 0 for 5."
Manny Ramirez contributed with a homer four RBIs to help theDodgers snap a three-game losing streak with a 12-0 win over theCincinnati Reds on Tuesday night.
James Loney also had four hits to help the Dodgers finish withmore runs than the eight they scored while being swept by the LosAngeles Angels in a three-game weekend series at DodgerStadium.
A long rain delay obviously didn't bother Furcal, who wasplaying his 20th game since returning from the disabled list afterpulling a hamstring.
"As soon as they said the game would start in a half hour, westarted to stretch and move around," Furcal said. "I'm feelingbetter the last four or five days. The first week and a half when Icame back, I was a little sore, but it's gone now. I feel like I doat the start of the season now."
The Reds, who spent the previous six days alone in first placein the NL Central Division, lost for the third time in four gamesand dropped into a tie with St. Louis after the Cardinals beatSeattle 4-2.
The Dodgers, who have scored 40 runs in four games at GreatAmerican Ball Park this season, tied a season high with 19hits.
"They blew us out," Reds manager Dusty Baker said. "They got hitafter hit after hit. That was not a good night for us tonight -- along game and a drubbing to boot."
Hiroki Kuroda outlasted a rain delay of 2 hours, 24 minutes towin for the first time in four starts since beating Houston 7-3 onMay 18.
Kuroda (6-4) allowed three hits with two walks and fivestrikeouts while picking up his third win in three career startsagainst Cincinnati.
"I felt good," Kuroda said. "I wanted to go back out there. Iwanted to go all the way today. I have never waited this long.Generally, in Japan, they wait an hour. If it doesn't stop raining,they cancel the game. If I didn't go back out there, I thought mywhole day would be wasted. I played catch with the bullpen coachthree times during the delay."
Cincinnati starter Aaron Harang did not return after rain forceda delay with one out in the top of the fifth inning. Harang (5-6),who'd won his last three decisions, gave up seven hits and fiveruns with two walks and five strikeouts.
Furcal's double in the first sparked a three-run inning and theDodgers added three more in the fifth after the delay on RBIsingles by Ramirez, Loney and Casey Blake before Ramirez hit atwo-run shot in the seventh.
Ramon Troncoso drew a bases-loaded walk for his first career RBIand Furcal drove in two runs with a line drive off the left fieldwall that went for a single when Troncoso stopped at second.
"Furcal was the star of the game," manager Joe Torre said. "Hedid everything but sell tickets."
