CINCINNATI (AP) — Carlos Marmol blew a lead in the ninth inning before Darwin Barney hit his first homer in the 10th inning Tuesday night, lifting the Chicago Cubs to a 4-2 victory over the Cincinnati Reds.

Chicago ended its four-game losing streak after blowing a late lead for the second straight day. The Cubs let a two-run lead get away in the 13th inning of a 5-4 loss Monday night.

Barney connected off left-hander Manny Parra (0-1), and Dave Sappelt added an RBI single.

Marmol (2-1), who lost the closer's job, came on with a runner on second and one out in the ninth to face Joey Votto, who was 1 for 15 in his career off the reliever with nine strikeouts. Votto singled up the middle to tie it.
