Ram jam: Cubs win a stunner
Reds unable to seal deal
The Reds had the first-place Cubs on the ropes, up by two runs entering the ninth inning, but David Weathers couldn't hold the lead, snapping his 10-save streak in a heartbreaking loss at Wrigley Field. Jeff Keppinger fell a homer short of the cycle, and Norris Hopper made a brilliant catch in center field and scored twice.

Ramirez starts rescue party
Needing a win to remain one game ahead in the NL Central, the Cubs entered the ninth two runs down. But Aramis Ramirez hit a game-tying triple and Mark DeRosa, who combined with Cliff Floyd on consecutive homers earlier, drove in the win on his fifth hit of the game, an infield single.
