he Cubs have certainly had to scrape and fight for their wins the last couple of days. Trailing twice to the Reds, a four-run seventh inning and five-run eighth helped Chicago emerge with a 13-9 victory -- its fourth in a row.

On Sunday vs. the Blue Jays, the Cubs needed three runs in the 10th inning to win -- after giving up two in Chicago Cubs jerseys the top half. On Tuesday, the Reds blew leads of 3-0 and 6-3.

"The guys picked me up tonight," said John Lackey after the Cubs won their eighth consecutive game in which he cheap jerseys has started despite him being charged with six runs in five innings. "Any way you win games is good."
The first-place Cubs maintained a 2 1/2-game lead in the National League Central standings with the Brewers' 4-3 win over the Giants on Tuesday night.
After Michael Lorenzen's one-out walk in the seventh to Anthony Rizzo, lefty Wandy Peralta gave up four straight two-out hits. Following a bad-luck ricocheted infield hit off of the pitcher, a broken-bat single by Javier Baez scored two runs and tied the game. Ben Zobrist's pinch-hit two-run double was rocketed to right-center field for an 8-6 lead.
"There were some very good at-bats. Then things just unraveled from there," Reds manager Bryan Price said.

Reds reliever Blake Wood had another disastrous outing, where his first six batters of the eighth inning reached safely -- the first three via walks. That led to five more runs scoring to break the game wide open as nine men batted in the inning. Wood has given up 11 earned runs over his last two appearances with five walks.
On the heels of the Cubs making it a 3-3 game in the top of the fifth, Eugenio Suarez put the Reds back in front in the bottom half against starter Lackey. On a 2-2 pitch, Suarez lifted a three-run homer to left-center field. In the ninth against Felix Pena, he added a two-run homer for a career-high five RBIs.

With two out in the third vs. Lackey, Scooter Gennett staked the Reds to a 3-0 lead with his 22nd homer of the season -- a solo shot to right field. However, starter Homer Bailey was unable to stick around after the third because of an irritation in the back of his shoulder. Kevin Shackelford took over in the fourth and struggled to get through the fifth as the Cubs sent eight men to the plate.

Baez battles back: Facing Peralta in the seventh, Baez was down quickly in an 0-2 count before working the at-bat for three-straight balls. After Baez fouled off a changeup, Peralta threw a 98-mph fastball and broke his bat. The ball rolled softly through the right side of the infield for a two-run single that briefly made it 6-6.
