Reds Beat Fading Cubs for 5th Straight Win
CINCINNATI (AP) -- Todd Frazier drove in a pair of runs with a sacrifice fly and a single, and the Cincinnati Reds used another big inning to beat the Chicago Cubs 5-2 on Saturday for their fifth straight victory.

The Reds have won 13 of their last 16 games, surging to a season-high 13 games over .500 at 31-18. It's their best start since 1995.

Cincinnati scored four times in the sixth off left-hander Travis Wood (4-3), extending its domination of the NL Central's last-place team. Chicago has lost a season-high six consecutive games.

Homer Bailey (3-3) gave up two runs in six innings to a lineup that rarely has a big inning.

The Reds have dominated the Cubs lately, winning 16 of their last 18 games in the series.
