Sutton Delivers for Reds in Win Over Cubs
CHICAGO (AP) -- Pinch-hitter Drew Sutton lined a two-out, two-run double off Carlos Marmol in the ninth inning and the Cincinnati Reds beat the Chicago Cubs 7-5 after squandering a five-run lead Saturday.

Marmol (2-3), the Cubs closer, walked two straight batters with two outs before Sutton lined a ball into the right field corner to break the 5-5 tie.

Arthur Rhodes (1-1) pitched a scoreless eighth for the win. Francisco Cordero pitched the ninth for his 34th save in 37 chances.

The Cubs made three infield errors in the third inning, helping the Reds score twice en route to the 5-0 lead after four innings.
