CHICAGO (AP) -- Kyle Schwarber hit a go-ahead two-run home run in the seventh inning, and Kris Bryant had three hits as the Chicago Cubs beat the Cincinnati Reds 5-4 on Tuesday night.
Schwarber sent a deep drive into the left-center field bleachers on a 3-2 pitch from Burke Badenhop (1-4). The blast scored Dexter Fowler, who had singled with two outs.
Bryant drove in two runs for Chicago, which had lost five of six but is still in good shape for its first playoff berth since 2008. The Cubs entered play Tuesday 5 1-2 games ahead of San Francisco for the NL's second wild card spot.
Hector Rondon picked up his 25th save in 29 tries. Fernando Rodney (6-5) allowed Eugenio Suarez's homer in the seventh that gave the Reds a short-lived 4-3 lead but won his first game since the Cubs acquired him from Seattle on Aug. 27.
TORONTO (AP) -- Ryan Goins hit a two-run homer in the bottom of the 10th inning and the Toronto Blue Jays beat Cleveland 5-3 on Tuesday night, snapping the Indians' winning streak at six games.
Yan Gomes hit two home runs and Michael Brantley also connected but it wasn't enough for the Indians.
Toronto's Edwin Encarnacion went 0 for 2 with a walk and a sacrifice fly, ending his career-high hitting streak at 26 games.
Dioner Navarro singled off Bryan Shaw (3-3) to begin the 10th and was replaced by pinch-runner Ezequiel Carrera. One out later, Goins drilled the game-winning homer into the right field bullpen, his fifth.
Mark Lowe (1-2) got one out for the victory as AL East-leading Toronto won for the fourth time in five games and remained 1 1-2 games ahead of the New York Yankees, who beat Boston 3-1.
CINCINNATI (AP) -- The Bengals placed top draft pick Cedric Ogbuehi on an injury list Tuesday, getting down to the 75-man roster limit.
The offensive tackle is recovering from a torn ACL suffered during his final game at Texas A&M. He can't practice for the first six weeks of the season. The Bengals anticipated when they drafted Ogbuehi that he would miss all or most of the season.
Cincinnati also put linebacker Sean Porter on the physically unable to perform list as he recovers from a torn ACL suffered last year. He, too, can practice after six weeks.
The Bengals released receiver Onterio McCalebb with an injury. If no team claims him off waivers, he'll revert to Cincinnati's injured reserve list.
BEREA, Ohio (AP) -- The Browns have released defensive tackle Phil Taylor, a former first-round pick.
Taylor was coming back following knee surgeries and had been limited in training camp and played 11 snaps in Cleveland's exhibition on Saturday against Tampa Bay. The 6-foot-3, 335-pound Taylor was guaranteed to make over $5 million this season.
Cleveland has depth on its defensive line, and Taylor, the No. 21 overall pick in 2011, became expendable. He wasn't as far along in his rehab as the team had hoped and coach Mike Pettine said Taylor's contract was not a factor in the decision.
Also, Travis Coons has won Cleveland's kicking job, beating out Cary Spear, who was released. Coons made a 41-yard field goal -- his only attempt -- and three extra points in the Browns' first three exhibitions.
