    CHICAGO -- Dusty Baker doesnt follow the records. Chris Baker Jersey . He is keeping count as the Reds keep piling up wins at Wrigley Field. Xavier Paul hit a three-run home run, Joey Votto added a two-run shot and the Cincinnati Reds roughed up Matt Garza and the Chicago Cubs 12-2 on Tuesday night. Tony Cingrani (3-0), filling in for the injured Johnny Cueto, pitched seven strong innings as Cincinnati extended its franchise-best winning streak at Wrigley Field to 11 games. The former Cubs manager was surprised to hear that 11 games is the most consecutive wins by an opponent at Wrigley. "Really? Ill tell you, I am not an accountant. But I do know how many. Its a nice count," Baker said with a sly smile. Cingrani, from Chicagos South Suburbs, allowed two runs and four hits, while striking out five and allowing one walk. Zack Cozart also added a three-run shot in the eighth and Todd Frazier hit a solo home run in the second inning for the Reds. Baker also passed Ralph Houk for 16th place on the all-time win list for a manager with 1,620 victories. The Reds have won 18 of its last 21 against the Cubs. "Its pretty cool. Were comfortable here. Our pitching has been doing what they have always been doing and we feel really relax here and we know coming in we will have a really good shot," said Frazier. "For some reason, we do like playing here in Chicago, but were happy go lucky. Its pretty fun, it gets us back on the winning track. We got two more to go, were trying to get that sweep." Garza (1-1) was tagged for a career-high nine runs and nine hits in five-plus innings. He was lifted in the sixth after allowing six runs without retiring a batter. "Its keeping the ball down and fastball command, I dont think he really had his slider today, he wasnt throwing much, but its still keeping the ball down, keeping the ball down and away and obviously pitching in, but youve got to have fastball command down in the strike zone," said Cubs manager Dale Sveum. Garza dropped to 0-2 against the Reds this season, allowing 13 runs in nine innings. The three homers he gave up were the most since last July 5 at Atlanta. Cody Ransom hit a solo home run for the Cubs, who have lost seven of their last nine games. The third baseman committed three of Chicagos four errors as the Cubs suffered their worst defeat of the season. With two outs in the second, Frazier connected on a 1-2 pitch that wound up in the centre-field basket for his seventh home run of the season. It was his first homer on the road this year and first one since April 24th. "Im trying to get hits, Im trying to help the team. Do I want to hit home runs? Yes,. But at the same time Im trying to get my average up, were trying to win. Am I conscious (about it). Yeah, its there, but I know at the end of the year Im going to have the numbers I am going to have. I am trying to reach my goals and I still think I have a shot," said Frazier. An inning later, Votto tagged Garza for a two-run shot. It was Vottos 11th of the season. Votto is 16 for 30 with seven doubles, one home run and eight RBIs during a nine-game hitting streak at Wrigley. The Reds added six runs for Cingrani in the sixth. Jay Bruce lined a double down the left-field line to drive in two runs. After Garza hit Frazier with a pitch, Paul followed with a three-run homer to right. After chasing Garza, Cozart added an RBI single to give the Reds a 9-1 lead. Bruce was 3 for 5 with two RBIs as Cincinnati finished with 17 hits. Ransom scored on Alfonso Sorianos sacrifice fly in the fourth. Ransom hit his seventh homer of the season in the sixth. Cozart cleared the bases on a three-run homer in the eighth inning off Cubs reliever Zach Putnam. Putnam left with an apparent injury after giving up the home run. "Hes got a bone spur that he battled over a year now, he said it was just on fire, so I think well get an MRI on that tomorrow," said Sveum.
