Reds Beat Cubs in 1 of 2 SS Games
LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Kris Negron hit a two-run single with the bases loaded in the bottom of the ninth inning, lifting the Cincinnati Reds to a 9-8 victory over the Chicago Cubs in a game between split-squads Saturday.

Starlin Castro and Scott Moore each hit two home runs for the Cubs.

Castro's second two-run shot -- which barely cleared the center-field fence near the 433-foot sign at Cashman Field -- gave the Cubs a 6-5 lead.

The Cubs added two runs and took an 8-5 lead in the seventh on Tyler Colvin's RBI single and Luis Montanez's sacrifice fly.

The Reds scored twice and trimmed the Cubs' lead to 8-7 in the seventh on Danny Dorn's solo homer and Chris McMurray's RBI single.

Scott Carroll was the winning pitcher while Robert Coello took the loss for the Cubs.
