Cubs lose for 9th time in 10 games; Reds win again 4-3

CHICAGO (AP) -- Drew Stubbs hurt the Chicago Cubs again, hitting a tiebreaking homer in the eighth inning and driving in a pair of runs to lead the surging Cincinnati Reds to a 4-3 victory Saturday.

Stubbs doubled and scored in the third, started the eighth with his 14th homer and singled in a run in the ninth. The speedy center fielder snapped out of a 1-for-37 funk after being benched for five games. He is batting .318 with five homers against the Cubs this season.

The NL Central-leading Reds have won six of seven to move 15 games over .500 for the first time since the end of the 1999 season.

Chicago has lost nine of 10 and is 3-9 against the Reds this year.
