Bruce homers again, Reds beat Cubs 4-2

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Jay Bruce returned to right field and hit another two-run homer on Tuesday afternoon, and Johnny Cueto extended his winning streak against Chicago, leading the Cincinnati Reds to a 4-2 victory over the Cubs in the opener of a doubleheader.

The Reds put first baseman Joey Votto back on the disabled list before the game, hoping a strained muscle above his left knee will heal enough to let him play this season. They're using different players -- including Bruce -- at the position for now.

Bruce played first base for the first time since high school and hit a two-run homer in his final at-bat during a 9-3 win on Monday night in the opener of the five-game series. He was back in the outfield and homered again in the first inning off left-hander Travis Wood (7-7).
