Cubs Bullpen Disappoints Again Against Cincinnati
CINCINNATI (AP) -- Drew Stubbs tripled and hit his first career grand slam off Esmailin Caridad in the eighth inning Friday night, rallying the Cincinnati Reds to a 5-4 victory over the Chicago Cubs.

The Reds managed only three hits in the first seven innings, then took advantage of Caridad (0-1), who didn't give up an earned run during spring training. The right-hander walked the first two batters he faced, and Chris Dickerson bunted for a single before Stubbs connected for a 5-3 lead.

Micah Owings (1-0) got the victory with three innings of relief. Francisco Cordero gave up a solo homer by Derrek Lee in the ninth before picking up his first save.
