CHICAGO (AP) _ Sammy Sosa became the first player in major league history with three, 60-homer seasons, connecting in the first inning off Lance Davis, but it wasn't enough to keep Chicago from being eliminated from postseason contention.

Adam Dunn hit a solo homer off Kyle Farnsworth (4-6) in the ninth to break a 4-all tie, and Dmitri Young and D.T. Cromer also homered for the Reds.

Sosa hit 66 homers in 1998, when McGwire set the single-season record and followed that with 63 in 1999.

Scott Sullivan (7-1) pitched two scoreless innings, and Danny Graves pitched the ninth for his 32nd save.
