Puig, Reds edge Cubs in 10th inning

Yasiel Puig's bases-loaded single in the 10th inning gave the host Cincinnati Reds a 6-5, walk-off win over the Chicago Cubs on Wednesday. The Reds tied the game on Eugenio Suarez's two-run homer in the eighth inning.

With one out in the bottom of the 10th, Joey Votto drew a walk from Brad Brach (3-1). Suarez hit a single -- his third hit of the night -- and the runners moved up when the ball was deflected by third baseman David Bote. Brach intentionally walked Jesse Winker to get to Puig, who hit an RBI single to center.

Amir Garrett (3-1) got the win after retiring the only batter he faced. He entered with two on and two outs in the top of the 10th and got Willson Contreras to ground out. Nick Senzel, Derek Dietrich and Jose Iglesias each had two hits for Cincinnati, with Iglesias producing a two-run double.

Addison Russell and Albert Almora Jr. each had a homer and a single for the Cubs, and Kyle Schwarber also went deep. Chicago starter Yu Darvish struck out 11 in 5 1/3 innings. He allowed two runs on five hits and no walks.

Cincinnati's Sonny Gray pitched five innings of three-run ball. He gave up five hits and no walks, and he struck out seven. --Field Level Media
