|Fukudome's Error Sends Reds Over Cubs
|CINCINNATI (AP) -- Kosuke Fukudome's homer tied it in the top of the eighth, but his throwing error in the bottom half of the inning helped Cincinnati rally for a 7-5 victory Sunday that completed the Reds' season-long domination of the Chicago Cubs.
The Reds won 12 of their 16 games against Chicago this season, their best showing since they went 12-5 in 2002. The NL Central leaders have won 11 of their last 15 games overall, pulling away from second-place St. Louis.
Fukudome's two-run homer off Arthur Rhodes tied it at 5. His throw from right field skipped into a photographers' booth behind third base in the bottom of the inning, letting in the go-ahead run off Sean Marshall (6-5).
