CUBS-REDS

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Jonathan Herrera singled home the tiebreaking run in the 11th inning, and David Ross followed with a bases-loaded double that sent the Chicago Cubs to a 7-3 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Friday night.

Anthony Rizzo homered, doubled and started Chicago's winning rally with a single off Burke Badenhop (0-1) as the Reds' bullpen failed again. Herrera singled home the go-ahead run, and Ross doubled home two more.

Starting pitcher Travis Wood drove in the final run with a pinch-hit grounder.

Jason Motte (1-0) got Jay Bruce to foul out with the bases loaded in the 10th inning, keeping it tied at 3. Hector Rondon retired the side in order for his fourth save in five chances.

DETROIT (AP) -- Brandon Moss homered twice and drove in seven runs, Danny Salazar struck out a career-high 11 and the Cleveland Indians routed the Detroit Tigers 13-1 Friday night.

Detroit has lost four straight after an 11-2 start.

Moss had a three-run homer in the fifth inning and a two-run shot in the ninth. Lonnie Chisenhall hit a two-run homer in the eighth. The Indians entered with 11 homers all season, none with runners on base.
