Reds Rally for Victory Over Cubs
CHICAGO (AP) -- Todd Frazier and Devin Mesoraco each had a sacrifice fly in Cincinnati's four-run eighth inning, and the Reds rallied for a 6-4 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Saturday.

Cincinnati had just one hit in the decisive rally, but took advantage of another woeful outing by reliever Carlos Marmol to secure its first winning road series of the season. The Reds held on for a 6-5 victory in the opener on Friday when Darwin Barney struck out with the bases loaded to end the game.

Alfonso Soriano hit a pair of two-run homers for the Cubs, who have lost four of five. It was Soriano's 31st career multihomer game.
