Bases loaded walk gives Cubs a 6-5 win over Reds in 10
(CHICAGO) - In registering a string of comeback wins, the Cubs have come through with big hit after big hit late in games. On Sunday, they produced a rally without the benefit of a hit. Dave Bote drove in the game-winning run with a bases-loaded walk in the 10th inning, lifting Chicago to a 6-5 victory over the Cincinnati Reds. Javier Baez had two hits and two RBI for the Cubs, who have won their last nine games in comeback fashion. Albert Almora Jr. and Ian Happ also had two hits apiece, and Addison Russell drove in three runs. Eugenio Suarez and Adam Duvall homered for the Reds, who had their five-series winning streak snapped. Cubs starter Jon Lester failed in his bid to become the NL's first 12 game winner. He allowed four runs on six hits in 6 1/3 innings to snap a severn start winning streak. Luke Farrell (3-3) worked a clean 10th inning for the win. Willson Contreras led off the 10th with a walk against Jackson Stephens (2-2). Contreras then advanced on a wild pitch with Victor Caratini at the plate. After Caratini struck out, Happ was intentionally walked. Addison Russell then hit a weak roller to first base. Joey Votto fielded the ball cleanly and had an easy play, but tried to take the ball out of his glove before reaching the bag to hold Contreras at third and bobbled it. Russell was initially called out, but the call was overturned following a review, loading the bases with one out. Votto was given an error. Bote worked the count to 3-2 and then took a high fastball for ball four.
