CHICAGO, April 22 (UPI) -- Johnny Cueto allowed one earned run over 6 1/3 innings and the Cincinnati Reds took advantage of three Cubs errors Sunday in their 4-3 win over Chicago.

Cueto (2-0) allowed two runs overall on five hits, walking a pair and striking out seven while lowering his ERA to 1.78 over 25 1/3 innings this season.

Lyle Ondrusek and Aroldis Chapman combined for 1 2/3 frames of scoreless relief and former Cub Sean Marshall picked up his third save despite allowing a run in the ninth for the Reds, who took the rubber match of a three-game set.

With the game tied 2-2 in the sixth, the Reds loaded the bases off Rodrigo Lopez (0-1) with a walk and consecutive throwing errors charged to Cubs catcher Geovany Soto.

Ryan Hanigan came home with the go-ahead run on Drew Stubbs' fielder's choice grounder and Scott Maine issued a bases-loaded walk to Jay Bruce to drive in the eventual game-winner.

Bryan LaHair and Jeff Baker drove in runs for Chicago.
