CHICAGO — Miguel Montero and Jorge Soler broke a tie with back-to-back solo homers to start the eighth inning, and the Chicago Cubs overcame homers from both sides of the plate by Nick Swisher in a 9-7, comeback win over the Atlanta Braves — their third straight— on Saturday

Montero and Soler both lofted balls into the left field basket off former CubEdwin Jackson (2-2), sending Atlanta to its sixth straight loss.

Swisher homered from both sides of the plate in the same game for a record-tying 14th time to drive in four runs. He tied the Yankees' Mark Teixeira, who homered right- and left-handed most recently in a game on July 31 against the White Sox.

Pedro Strop (2-6), the Cubs fourth reliever got the win.
