The Cincinnati Reds (43-48) beat the Chicago Cubs (50-44) by a score of 6-3, Monday night at Wrigley Field. A little bit of everything came together in this latest Reds victory over the Cubs.
The seventh inning was where the fortunes of Cincinnati, who had been treading water to that point, changed for the better. Curt Casali blasted a solo home run off the first pitch from Cubs reliever Steve Cishek (2-5, 2.83 ERA) to even the score at three. Jesse Winker then hit a pinch-hit single to left, followed by Nick Senzel reaching on an error by Javier Baez.
