Reds keep Cubs bats quiet again
CHICAGO (AP) — Jose Iglesias had an RBI double in the 10th inning and five Cincinnati pitchers combined for a four-hitter as the Reds recorded their second straight win over the playoff-contending Chicago.
Chicago opens a four-game series against St. Louis on Thursday night at Wrigley Field.
With two outs and none on in the top of the 10th, Cincinnati’s Aristides Aquino started the winning rally against James Norwood (0-1) with a single to left. After Aquino advanced on a wild pitch, Josh VanMeter walked, putting runners on first and second. Iglesias then doubled to right to score Aquino with the go-ahead run.
Amir Garrett (5-3) struck out Kyle Schwarber to end the ninth and Raisel Iglesias worked around a one-out double in the 10th for his 33rd save. Nico Horner lined out to right to end it.
