Cubs tear apart Reds

Starlin Castro cracked a three-run homer and drove in six runs as the Chicago Cubs ripped apart the Cincinnati Reds 14-7 Friday night in the opener of a three-game series.

The Cubs won the game as a +105 underdog, while the 21 runs sailed OVER the posted over/under (9) set by sportsbooks.

Mike Fontenot belted a pinch-hit grand slam home run for the Cubs, while Carlos Silva went five innings for the win.

Homer Bailey was rocked for seven earned runs off five hits in four innings of work for the Reds.
