Chicago Cubs hold off sliding Cincinnati Reds for 7-5 win

18 Мая 2017, 09:26 | Cedric Leonard

Feldman is getting some strong defensive support and has been a little lucky in the home run department on is way to posting a 3.59 ERA in his first eight starts. Cubs manager Joe Maddon said he would mark his 1,000th career managerial victory, recorded Tuesday, by donating 1,000 meals to the homeless via service organizations in both Chicago and Tampa.

The Cubs have had a tough time when it's come to allowing first-inning runs this season with a MLB-high 42 (as have the Reds - third with 35). "It's a hard place to pitch when the wind's blowing the way it is, and their guys just did a better job of keeping the ball in the park than we did".

Schwarber's continued trouble in the leadoff spot and the shaky performance so far by the rotation had created some angst for a fan base expecting more of the same after Chicago's historic crown previous year, but no one seemed a bit anxious around the team.

Cozart put Cincinnati in front with an RBI single in the first, but Chicago went ahead to stay with five runs in the second against Scott Feldman (2-4).

Votto tried for a backhand stab on Schwarber's hard-hit grounder to first, but it skipped by him for a tiebreaking two-run single.

Chicago added two unearned runs in the third after Duvall misplayed Miguel Montero's fly ball for Cincinnati's NL-low 17th error.

"It was a awful night to pitch", Chicago Cubs starter John Lackey said.

Cincinnati pulled within two on Eugenio Suarez's two-run double in the seventh, but Chicago's bullpen shut the door from there.

But what the right-hander from Dartmouth can do with an 86-mph fastball and a plan could quickly become the most important thing the Cubs have going for them as they try to resemble a playoff team again.

Part of Kris Bryant's broken bat got stuck in the netting behind home plate after he lined out to Feldman in the first.

A group of workers finally brought out a long ladder before the start of the third inning and shook it free, earning a big ovation from the crowd.

Chicago shortstop Addison Russell was off target on a throw to an outstretched first baseman Rizzo to get Votto on a game-ending groundout. Hendricks (2-2, 3.40 ERA) is 1-1 with a 1.52 ERA in his last four starts.

Reds: Manager Bryan Price said he is hoping RHP Tim Adleman will be able to make his next start Saturday against the Rockies.

The Cubs (20-19) won their second straight over the Reds, and they will go for a series sweep in the finale on Thursday. Right-hander Lisalverto Bonilla will start Friday in the opener of three-game set at home against Colorado.

Cubs: OF Jason Heyward took live batting practice on the field.
