Reds Beat Cubs
CINCINNATI (AP) -- Joey Votto hit a two-run homer in his first at-bat Saturday, and Jonny Gomes broke the game open with a bases-loaded single in the seventh off Carlos Zambrano, leading the Cincinnati Reds to a 14-2 victory over the Chicago Cubs.

Votto extended his hitting streak to seven games when he connected off left-hander Tom Gorzelanny (1-4), who hadn't allowed a homer by a left-handed batter. Gomes' single sparked a five-run rally in the seventh, and Ryan Hanigan added his first career grand slam an inning later.

Aaron Harang (2-4) struck out a season-high nine in 6 2/3 innings of Cincinnati's most lopsided win this season.
