Arroyo Leads Reds to Second Straight Win in Chicago
CHICAGO (AP) - Ryan Ludwick hit a two-run double in the eighth and the Cincinnati Reds rallied to a 4-2 win over the Chicago Cubs Saturday afternoon.
After Drew Stubbs doubled and Brandon Phillips singled off Cubs reliever James Russell (5-1), Ludwick looped a pitch down the left-field line and into the corner.
The comeback made a winner of Bronson Arroyo (8-7), who held the Cubs to two runs and five hits over eight innings. Arroyo gave up both runs early, but settled down to improve to 5-0 in his last seven starts at Wrigley Field.
Reds closer Aroldis Chapman continued his recent dominance by setting down three straight in the ninth and converting his 27th save, including his last 19 straight. Since Chapman last blew a save on June 24, he's thrown 20 2-3 scoreless innings and struck out 44.
David DeJesus had a two-run single for Chicago.
