Homer Sends Reds to Victory Over Cubs
CHICAGO (AP) -- Jay Bruce hit a three-run homer, Brandon Phillips made some key defensive plays at second base and the Cincinnati Reds won their third straight game Friday, beating the Chicago Cubs 5-4.

Edinson Volquez (3-1) got the win, laboring through numerous jams in five-plus innings. He allowed six hits and four runs, walked four and threw a pair of wild pitches.

Matt Garza (1-4), the Cubs' biggest offseason acquisition, still has one win in his first seven starts and none in four outings at Wrigley Field. He gave up six hits and five runs in six innings on a day of missed offensive opportunities for the Cubs, who left eight on base.
