Cubs score 4 times in 11th for 7-3 win over Reds

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Jonathan Herrera singled home the tiebreaking run in the 11th inning, and David Ross followed with a bases-loaded double that sent the Chicago Cubs to a 7-3 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Friday night.

Anthony Rizzo homered, doubled and started Chicago's winning rally with a single off Burke Badenhop (0-1) as the Reds' bullpen failed again. Herrera singled home the go-ahead run, and Ross doubled home two more.

Starting pitcher Travis Wood drove in the final run with a pinch-hit grounder.

Jason Motte (1-0) got Jay Bruce to foul out with the bases loaded in the 10th inning, keeping it tied at 3. Hector Rondon retired the side in order for his fourth save in five chances.

Jon Lester, the Cubs' biggest offseason acquisition, remained winless in four starts. He got a six-year, $155 million deal last December that included a $30 million signing bonus - a record for a major leaguer.

Lester allowed three runs in six innings and fanned a season-high 10 batters. He has allowed at least three runs in each start. The left-hander couldn't slow down Billy Hamilton, who singled twice, stole three bases and scored a pair of runs.

Mike Leake gave up three runs in seven innings, striking out a season-high nine. Leake is 8-2 career against the Cubs and 5-0 in eight starts against them at Great American Ball Park.

Leake gave up Rizzo's two-run homer in the fourth and Chris Coghlan's solo shot in the seventh that tied it at 3. Coghlan is 9 for 11 career against Leake with three doubles and a pair of homers.

TRAINER'S ROOM

Cubs: 2B Javier Baez will work out at the team's spring training complex in Mesa, Arizona, getting back into playing shape. He has been on bereavement leave the last two weeks following the death of his sister.

Reds: C Devin Mesoraco is still limited to a pinch-hit role because of a sore left hip. He hopes to try catching in the bullpen in the next few days. Mesoraco has been limited to two pinch-hit appearances in the last 11 games.

UP NEXT

Cubs: RHP Jake Arrieta (2-1) makes his second appearance against the Reds this season. He allowed three runs in six innings of a 3-2 loss at Wrigley Field on April 14.

Reds: RHP Anthony DeSclafani (2-0) hasn't given up a run in his last 15 innings, a career best. He makes his fourth start with the Reds, who got him from Miami in the trade for Mat Latos. He got the win in the 3-2 victory at Wrigley on April 14, throwing seven shutout innings.

BULLS-CAVALIERS

CLEVELAND (AP) -- LeBron James attacked from the start and scored 33 points, Kyrie Irving added 21 and the Cleveland Cavaliers evened their semifinal series with Chicago with a 106-91 victory over the Bulls in Game 2 on Wednesday night.

Donning his signature headband for the first time in two months and powering to the basket, James kept the Cavs from falling into a 2-0 hole. He added eight rebounds and five assists for Cleveland, which led by 25 in the third quarter and withstood a third-quarter charge by the Bulls.

For the second straight game, the Cavs were without forward Kevin Love (shoulder surgery) and J.R. Smith (two-game suspension). But they had James and he was more like himself after a sub-par performance in the opener.

Jimmy Butler scored 18 and Derrick Rose had 14 points and 10 assists for the Bulls, who host Game 3 on Friday night.

BBA-INDIANS-ROYALS

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Just about everyone in the Cleveland lineup drove in a run, Carlos Carrasco tossed seven sharp innings and the Indians rolled to a 10-3 win over the Kansas City Royals on Wednesday night.

Brandon Moss homered and added a two-run double to lead the charge, but six other Indians also drove in runs, helping Carrasco (4-2) end a three-game skid against the Royals.

He gave up a two-run homer to Kendrys Morales, but otherwise shut down a Kansas City lineup that returned hot-hitting outfielder Lorenzo Cain from a two-game suspension.

Cleveland had already taken a 4-0 lead when Danny Duffy (2-1) was yanked after facing five batters without getting an out in the second. The Royals' bullpen briefly slowed the onslaught, but the Indians added four more runs in the seventh to put the game away.

REDS-PIRATES

PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Mike Leake worked eight innings for his sixth straight victory over Pittsburgh and Marlon Byrd homered for the second night in a row as the Cincinnati Reds beat the skidding Pirates 3-0 on Wednesday night.

Leake (2-1) allowed six hits and has not lost to the Pirates in 15 starts, dating to 2012.

The Reds' Brandon Phillips had three singles, including one that hugged the third-base line in the fourth inning and scored Todd Frazier, who had tripled, with the game's first run. Phillips scored on Leake's single then Byrd led off the fifth inning with his fifth home run of the season.

Aroldis Chapman pitched a scoreless ninth for his sixth save, finishing the seven-hitter.

April's NL Pitcher of the Month Gerrit Cole (4-1) lost his first start in May.

WHITE SOX-RODON

CHICAGO (AP) -- White Sox rookie pitcher Carlos Rodon is slated to make his first major league start on Saturday against Cincinnati.

Rodon is to start in place of Jeff Samardzija, who on Wednesday started serving a five-game suspension for his involvement in a bench-clearing brawl against Kansas City on April 23.

The 22-year-old left-hander made his major league debut on April 21 and has a 2.84 ERA in 6 1-3 innings and three relief appearances.

"He's doing well for a young guy coming up and I know it's been a tough spot for him to be able to fill some innings for us, come in and get a lefty," White Sox manager Robin Ventura said. "Now, with this going on, he gets the chance to make a start for us. It's a good spot for him."

BENGALS-MJOHNSON

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Bengals defensive end Michael Johnson didn't pay much attention to the NFL draft last week. He was caught up in his long-awaited graduation.

Johnson got his bachelor's degree in business administration last Saturday at Georgia Tech. It took a lot of offseason studying, but he finally earned his diploma six years after Cincinnati took him in the draft.

Johnson says it meant a lot to get the degree. He was about 10 classes short when he left Georgia Tech, and he took classes at the college during three offseasons to meet the requirements.

He's planning to have the diploma sent to his mother.

Now he's getting reacquainted with the Bengals' defense after spending last season with Tampa Bay.
