Reds turn tide in series with Cubs

Not that long ago, the Chicago Cubs probably viewed a series against the Cincinnati Reds as a near-guaranteed way to pick up some quick victories and gain some ground in the National League Central standings.

Those days have changed. And so is the Cubs-Reds rivalry.

The Cubs couldn't hold a multi-run lead for the second straight night, and the Reds won their fifth in a row and eighth in 10 games -- quite a run for a team that played .250 ball for the first month-plus of the season -- by rallying for a 6-3 victory on Friday night.
