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.

BREWERS-REDS

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Jimmy Nelson won his career-best third consecutive start and the Milwaukee Brewers rode a six-run fifth inning to a 7-3 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Saturday night.

Six Brewers each drove in one run as Milwaukee extended its best winning streak in more than a year to seven games. Adam Lind homered and Jean Segura had three hits, helping suddenly explosive Milwaukee has scored 47 runs in the first six games of the current road trip.

The winning streak is the Brewers' longest since they won nine straight from April 4 through April 13, 2014.

Nelson (6-8) overcame solo home runs by Marlon Byrd and Ivan De Jesus Jr. to last 5 2-3 innings. He gave up eight hits and three runs with one walk and five strikeouts.

MLS-RED BULLS-CREW

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Kei Kamara set up Ethan Finlay's two goals, and the Columbus Crew rallied to beat the New York Red Bulls 2-1 on Saturday night.

The Kamara-to-Finlay connection was a role reversal for the league leaders in goals (Kamara 12) and assists (Finlay 10).

Finlay punched in Kamara's header to give Columbus the lead in the 74th minute. The Crew (6-6-6) held on from there and moved ahead of the Red Bulls (6-6-5) in the Eastern Conference standings.

Anatole Abang put the Red Bulls in front in the eighth minute, beating goalkeeper Steve Clark with a roller inside the far post.

Finlay tied it in the 33rd, taking a flick header from Kamara, cutting back and curling a left-footed shot into the net. Clark was credited with an assist on the long ball to Kamara.

Red Bulls coach Jesse Marsch was sent off in stoppage time.
