(CHICAGO) – Kyle Schwarber wasn't thinking home run when he stepped to the plate in the bottom of the 10th inning Tuesday night. That, he believes, was the key to success. Schwarber hit a solo home run with one out to give the Chicago Cubs a 4-3 comeback victory over the Cincinnati Reds. The lefty slugger stroked a 1-1 pitch from closer Raisel Iglesias (2-8) into the basket in front of the left field bleachers for his 21st homer and first career game-ending hit of any kind. Robel Garcia and Kris Bryant also connected for the NL Central leaders, who have won six of eight. Eugenio Suarez homered for Cincinnati, which fell to 7-4 against Chicago this season. Steve Cishek (3-5) worked the 10th and four Cubs relievers combined for four scoreless innings. Cubs spot starter Alec Mills allowed three runs and five hits over six innings in his season debut. He walked one, struck out two and hit four batters with pitches. Reds starter Anthony DeSclafani allowed three runs and four hits in 5 2/3 innings.
