Phillips powers Reds past Cubs

Phillips powers Reds past Cubs

Brandon Phillips hit a grand slam and matched his career high with six RBIs, and the Cincinnati Reds extended their dominance over the Chicago Cubswith a 6-2 win Monday night in foggy conditions at Wrigley Field.

Phillips had an RBI single in the first, connected off Scott Feldman(5-5) in the third and an RBI groundout in the sixth for his fourth-career game of six RBIs.

Across town, the Chicago White Sox and Toronto Blue Jayswere delayed over an hour because of a dense fog but the Cubs and Reds were never halted.

The Reds were coming off a weekend series loss to NL Central-leading St. Louis and had lost four of five overall.

Homer Bailey (4-4) picked up his first win since beating the Cubs on May 25.
