Recap: Chicago Cubs vs. Cincinnati

Chicago, IL (Sports Network) - Ryan Ludwick ripped a go-ahead two-run double during a three-run eighth inning and the Cincinnati Reds rallied for a 4-2 win over the Chicago Cubs in the third test of a four-game series at Wrigley Field.

Todd Frazier went 2-for-3 with an RBI single, while Brandon Phillips had three hits and Ryan Hanigan added two hits for the Reds, who have won two straight on the heels of a five-game losing streak.

The late-inning rally made a winner out of Bronson Arroyo (8-7), who allowed two runs on five hits with a walk and four strikeouts over eight innings. Aroldis Chapman secured his 27th save of the season with a perfect ninth inning.

"They put two (runs) on me early, and that hurt us," Arroyo said. "It was definitely one of the most gratifying wins I've had in a long time."

David DeJesus laced a two-run single and James Russell (5-1) was tagged with the loss after allowing three runs on five hits in the eighth for the Cubs, who have dropped 10 of their last 11 games.

Starter Travis Wood pitched well against his former club, despite getting a no-decision. He allowed just one run on five hits with eight strikeouts and a walk over seven innings.

"To step up like that against the right-handed lineup and his former team was great," Cubs manager Dale Sveum said. "It was as impressive an outing as he's had all year."

After struggling to get good swings against Wood all afternoon, the Reds struck for three off of Russell to take control of the game.

Drew Stubbs got things rolling with a double into left and Phillips poked a single into left to put runners on the corners. Ludwick then delivered the big blow, a slicing double which landed just fair down the line in left to plate Stubbs and Phillips. Wilson Valdez got the Reds an insurance run with an RBI single later in the frame.

Chapman came on in the ninth and retired the side in order.

Earlier, Chicago plated their only runs of the game in the second inning. Luis Valbuena doubled, Bryan LaHair walked and Steve Clevenger singled to load the bases with one out. After Wood fanned, DeJesus laced a base hit up the middle, scoring both runners.

The Reds cut the deficit in half in the fourth when Phillips doubled and hustled around to score on a single by Frazier.
