CINCINNATI (AP) - Jay Bruce homered in the opener, and then helped the Cincinnati Reds pull off their biggest comeback of the season for a doubleheader sweep on Tuesday, 4-2 and 6-5 over the Chicago Cubs.

The Reds overcame a 5-0 deficit in the second game, sending Chicago to its fifth straight loss.

Bruce doubled home the tying run in the eighth. Billy Hamilton singled in the ninth off Hector Rondon (1-3) for the Reds' first doubleheader sweep since 2009 against Pittsburgh. Logan Ondrusek (3-2) pitched two innings.

The Cubs have been swept in all three of their doubleheaders this season.

In the opener, Bruce returned to right field and hit another two-run homer, connecting off Travis Wood (7-7) during a three-run first inning.
