Reds Romp Cubs
CHICAGO (AP) -- Drew Stubbs hit three of the Cincinnati Reds' season-high seven home runs on Sunday to lead a 14-3 romp over the Chicago Cubs.

The hot-hitting Reds had four of the homers during an eight-run seventh inning, all of them coming after Cubs starter Ted Lilly retired the first two batters.

Brandon Phillips began the barrage with a solo shot to left, and Jonny Gomes chased Lilly (3-7) with a two-run homer. Jeff Stevens came on in relief and surrendered a solo home run to Corky Miller, and after back-to-back walks, Stubbs went deep for the second time in the game.

Stubbs also hit a solo home run in the third inning and another solo shot in the ninth.

Mike Leake (6-1) picked up the win for Cincinnati, allowing three runs in six innings. Three relievers combined to pitch three perfect innings to finish it off.
