Cubs come from behind for 9-4 win over Reds

CINCINNATI (AP) - Nate Schierholtz drove in three runs and Anthony Rizzo hit a two-run homer, rallying the Chicago Cubs over the Cincinnati Reds 9-4 Wednesday night.

Starlin Castro went 3 for 4 with two doubles for the Cubs, who have won two of three following a four-game losing streak.

Brayan Pena hit a solo homer for the Reds, who have lost four of five.

Edwin Jackson (2-2) beat Cincinnati for the second time this year, allowing four runs and five hits in 5 2-3 innings. Brian Schlitter, Wesley Wright, Neil Ramirez and Hector Rondon combined for two-hit relief.

With the score 3-3 in the fifth, the Cubs loaded the bases with no outs against reliever Nick Christiani (0-1). Mike Olt hit into an RBI forceout, and Schierholtz followed with a sacrifice fly.
