Streaking Cubs go for 5th straight vs. Reds

CINCINNATI -- The Chicago Cubs have displayed a flair for the dramatic this season, winning three straight games in which they trailed by three runs or more for the first time since 1929.

Manager Joe Maddon, however, would like to see them win in more conventional fashion. To do that, the Cubs need to get more consistent in every facet.

"It's about getting the method back in place," Maddon said. "What I mean by that is catch the ball consistently, run the bases well, pitch great at the end of the ballgame, get great starting pitching. We've shown that in bits and pieces. We haven't been consistent with our hitting. We haven't been consistent in the bullpen yet. I feel confident about it."
