CINCINNATI (AP) -- Todd Frazier drove in a pair of runs with a sacrifice fly and a single, and the Cincinnati Reds used another big inning to beat the Chicago Cubs 5-2 on Saturday for their fifth straight victory.
The Reds have won 13 of their last 16 games, surging to a season-high 13 games over .500 at 31-18. It's their best start since 1995, when they reached the NL championship series and got swept by Atlanta.
Cincinnati scored four times in the sixth off left-hander Travis Wood (4-3), extending its domination of the NL Central's last-place team. Chicago has lost a season-high six consecutive games.
Homer Bailey (3-3) gave up a pair of runs in six innings to a lineup that rarely has a big inning. Aroldis Chapman had a perfect ninth for his 12th save in 14 chances, hitting 100 mph with one pitch.
