Reds Send Cubs to 7th Straight Loss
CINCINNATI (AP) -- Jonny Gomes hit a three-run homer and drove in four overall, and the Cincinnati Reds sent the frustrated Chicago Cubs to their seventh straight loss, 8-2 on Monday night.

Gomes has only two homers since April 17, both of them setting up wins over the Cubs at Great American Ball Park. Cincinnati is 5-1 against Chicago and 17-5 over the last two seasons.

Chicago's slump is its longest since it also dropped seven in a row last July 27-Aug. 3.
Matt Garza (2-5) came off the disabled list and lasted four innings, giving up four runs. Mike Leake (5-2) had an RBI single off the right-hander, who hadn't pitched since May 17 because of a sore elbow.
