Suarez's 2-run homer rallies Reds to 6-3 win over Cubs

CINCINNATI (AP) Eugenio Suarez hit a go-ahead homer off Jose Quintana in the fifth inning, and the Cincinnati Reds held on for their fifth straight victory Friday night, 6-3 over the Chicago Cubs.

The Reds have won the first two games in the series, a recent rarity in the rivalry. It's only the second time in the last two years that they've won back-to-back games in a series against the Cubs. Chicago is 43-21 against Cincinnati over the last four seasons.

Suarez's two-run shot in the fifth inning off Quintana (6-6) gave him a team-high 16 homers and put the Reds ahead 4-3. Billy Hamilton and Joey Votto also singled home runs off Quintana, who had allowed only six earned runs in his last four starts combined.
