Jay Bruce's two-run, walk-off homer in the bottom of the 11th gave the Reds an 8-6 win over the Cubs. Alfonso Soriano and Darwin Barney each plated a run in the ninth to force extras for the Cubs, who scored their other four runs on two-run homers from Carlos Pena and Marlon Byrd in the first inning. James Russell took the loss. The Northsiders return to Wrigley Field this afternoon to open up a three-game series with the Houston Astros. Matt Garza gets the nod opposite Wandy Rodriguez in the opener.
