LOS ANGELES (AP) - Not so fast, Cincinnati Reds.

Two days after they caught the Mets batting out of order, the Reds were tripped up in a double-switch that Dodgers manager Dave Roberts successfully argued on Friday night.

In the seventh inning, Jesse Winker moved from left to right field and Adam Duvall entered the game in left.

Scott Schebler made the last out of the inning and assumed he was coming out of the game, so he left the field.

Winker was supposed to come off, but instead went to right as Schebler ran off.

"I didn't know Schebler ran off the field until Dave Roberts alerted the umpire and I realized then, 'Oh boy, we got a mess here,'" interim Reds manager Jim Riggleman said.

Roberts said he knew something was wrong when reliever Amir Garrett was in the leadoff spot, but the Reds had him hitting sixth.

"The wrong player left and the umpires were on it," he said. "They got it right."

Winker raised his arms in right as if to ask what was going on while the umpires convened. Eventually, plate umpire Alan Porter beckoned him to leave the field. Winker did and was replaced by Alex Blandino, who had never played right before.

"It was a mess," Riggleman said.

On Wednesday, the Reds hosted the Mets, whose official lineup card had Asdrubal Cabrera batting second and Wilmer Flores third. But Flores hit second and Cabrera third, leading Riggleman to point out the error.
