CHICAGO, Sept. 28 (UPI) -- D'Angelo Jimenez, Darren Bragg and Adam Dunn each had two-run homers Tuesday to power the Cincinnati Reds to an 8-3 victory over the Chicago Cubs.

Josh Hancock pitched eight innings to earn the victory for the Reds, who have won five of their last seven. Hancock (5-2) permitted three runs on seven hits.

Sean Casey and Dunn became the first Cincinnati duo with 100 RBI in the same season since George Foster and Johnny Bench in 1977.

The Cubs, who have lost three of their last four, began play one game ahead of San Francisco and 1 1/2 games ahead of Houston in the NL wild card standings.

Dunn's homer was his 44th of the season.

Greg Maddux (15-11), the Chicago starter, absorbed the loss after being charged with six runs on six hits in five innings.
