Bobby Scales had an RBI groundout in the eighth.
NOTES: Cubs manager Lou Piniella said the No. 5 spot in the batting order is "what we need to solve more than anything else." RF Milton Bradley, signed for $30 million last offseason, has only 39 RBIs. He went 0 for 5 with three strikeouts Sunday, completing a 1-for-13 series in which he fanned six times and stranded 12 baserunners. After drawing a team-high 66 walks through August, he hasn't had one in September. ... It was the last assignment at Wrigley for Dayton Daily News sportswriter Hal McCoy, a Hall of Famer who has covered the Reds for 37 years and is retiring after the season. The Cubs gave him a No. 37 panel from the center-field scoreboard.
