Default Rat on a stick + escape question

If two monsters are in play can the rat on a stick be used to remove one of the monsters leaving the player to fight the remaining monster(s), similar to how a magic lamp would be used? The language in the card says "escape from any monster level 8 or below".

It will not remove a monster from combat. After you have lost the combat, you can discard it to avoid the bad stuff from any monster level 8 or below

So if there are two monsters in combat can you use the magic lamp to get rid of one of the monsters and then kill the remaining.


Edit: nvm found the answer

Yes, provided you hadn't started Running Away yet. It says it can be used on your turn, so it can be used during the combat. The Rat on a Stick can't be used like that as it only allows you to automatically escape a monster. In order to escape a monster, you must be Running Away, and once you start Running Away, you can't go back to fighting as you already declared you had lost.
