It wasn't the best of nights for starter Eric Milton, but the Reds bailed him out in a big way to win a slugfest at Wrigley Field. Ken Griffey Jr. drove in four runs, Javier Valentin went 3-for-5 with two RBIs and three runs scored and Adam Dunn drove in two runs -- including a home run.

Derrek Lee, Jeromy Burnitz, Aramis Ramirez and Jason Dubois homered, but the Cubs couldn't close the door on the Reds. Carlos Zambrano was ejected for the second time in '05 for plunking Austin Kearns just after allowing an Adam Dunn homer.
