(CHICAGO, IN) - Carlos Pena hit a go-ahead three-run home run in the bottom of the eighth to give the Chicago Cubs a 6-3 victory over the Cincinnati Reds.

Cincinnati took the early lead on Yonder Alonso's RBI single in the first inning.

DJ Lemahieu tied it with an RBI single in the fifth and Aramis Ramirez gave Chicago the lead with a two-run double in the sixth.

The Reds tied it in the seventh on a sacrifice fly by Joey Votto and an RBI double from Jay Bruce.

That set up Pena's shot off Cincinnati reliever Bill Bray that found its way onto Sheffield Avenue.
