Cincinnati, OH (Sports Network) - Darwin Barney hit a solo homer in the 10th inning to lift the Chicago Cubs to a 4-2 win over the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday.
After Joey Votto tied the game with an RBI single in the ninth off Carlos Marmol (2-1), Barney smashed his first homer of the year into the left field seats.
The Cubs added an insurance run two hitters later. Julio Borbon reached on a weak grounder before moving to second on Corky Miller's throwing error. Borbon stole third and Dave Sappelt followed with a base hit to center to make it 4-2.
The Reds put two runners on with one out in the bottom of the 10th, but Kevin Gregg got Zack Cozart to fly out to right before fanning Votto to seal the win. It was Gregg's first save of the season.
Manny Parra (0-1) was saddled with the loss after giving up Barney's homer.
