Charlie Manuel didn't say much about his decision to bench Jimmy Rollins in the top of the fifth inning after the MVP shortstop jogged out a fly ball that ended up being dropped by Reds shortstop Paul Janish. But Rollins accepted responsibility afterwards, and said there was no ill-will between he and his manager.

"It's my fault. I can't get mad at him," Rollins said. "That's like breaking the law and getting mad that the police show up."

Rollins was batting with two out in the third when he popped a ball up to shallow left field. Janish ran back to make the catch, but the ball popped out of his glove, allowing Carlos Ruiz to score from second.

"There is no explanation," Rollins said. "I just didn't do it. It happens every once in awhile. Sometimes your manager gets you."
