Reds Top Cubs, End 7 Game Winning Streak

Ryan Hanigan hit a tie-breaking single off Sean Marshall in Cincinnati's two-run eighth inning and the Reds beat the Chicago Cubs 8-7 Sunday.

Center fielder Marlon Byrd slipped while chasing Joey Votto's shallow pop fly to start the eighth against Marshall (5-5). Votto scored on Todd Frazier's double to tie the game.

Frazier, Drew Stubbs and Edgar Renteria all hit home runs for Cincinnati. Nick Masset (2-5) got the final out in the seventh.

Starlin Castro and Blake DeWitt homered for Chicago, which had its seven-game winning streak snapped.
