Jay Bruce Hits 3 Homers as Reds Beat Cubs
CINCINNATI (AP) -- Jay Bruce homered in three consecutive at-bats, matching his career high with five RBIs, and the first-place Cincinnati Reds extended their two-week playoff surge by beating the Chicago Cubs 7-1 on Friday night.

The Reds are 10-3 since getting swept at home by the St. Louis Cardinals from Aug. 9-11. The streak pushed Cincinnati back ahead of the Cardinals in the NL Central, which the Reds have led for the last 13 days.

Johnny Cueto (12-4) got his first win since serving a seven-game suspension for kicking a couple of Cardinals during a brawl in their series. The right-hander gave up a run and six hits in eight innings.
