Cubs win 6-5 in 14 to end Reds' streak at Wrigley
CHICAGO CUBS 6, CINCINNATI 5 (14 INNINGS)

CHICAGO (AP) -- It took the Chicago Cubs 14 innings before they
finally found a way to beat Cincinnati at home.



Pinch-hitter Julio Borbon singled home the winning run with two
outs in the 14th and Chicago beat the Reds 6-5 on Thursday to
end Cincinnati's record 12-game winning streak at Wrigley Field.



"I was ready from probably the ninth inning on, probably even a
little earlier, just trying to get that opportunity to go up
there and help in any way possible," Borbon said. "It feels
pretty good."



The Cubs hadn't beaten Cincinnati at home since last Aug. 9.
With the win, Chicago avoided a four-game sweep and improved to
3-10 against the Reds this season.



Hector Rondon (1-0) pitched two innings for the victory and
Chicago's bullpen finished with 13 strikeouts over eight
scoreless innings in a game that lasted 5 hours, 7 minutes.



David DeJesus homered and Nate Schierholtz became the first
player this season to hit two triples in a game for the Cubs,
who had lost eight of 10 to fall a season-high 13 games below
.500. They scored at least five runs for the first time since
June 5.



"I think we needed that win today," Rondon said.



Jonathan Broxton (2-2) took the loss in the longest game for
both teams this season.



The previous record for consecutive victories by a visitor at
Wrigley Field was 10, by the St. Louis Cardinals (1943-44) and
matched by the New York Giants (1950-51) and Montreal Expos
(1982-83), according to STATS.



Chicago had lost 25 of 31 to the Reds dating to Sept. 13, 2011.



Starlin Castro led off the 14th with a single against Broxton
and stole second when Anthony Rizzo struck out. Castro went to
third on Alfonso Soriano's groundout to first base, and
Schierholtz was intentionally walked before Borbon came through.



Castro went 3 for 7 after entering in a 4-for-48 slump. He was
back in the second spot in the lineup after dropping to seventh
last week and hitting sixth on Wednesday, and came within a few
feet of ending the game in the ninth when his double off the
wall in left was knocked down by a stiff wind blowing in.



"That was by far, obviously, the best day he's had all year,"
Cubs manager Dale Sveum said. "He should have had a walk-off
home run. He crushed that ball. That was a shame. We would have
been in New York by now."



The Cubs open a three-game series Friday night against the Mets.



Instead of using closer Aroldis Chapman in the 14th, Reds
manager Dusty Baker went to Broxton.



Baker said he didn't want to use Broxton because of a sore right
elbow and had him "penciled in as a no" but tried to "sneak" him
through one inning.



"(Chapman) was my last pitcher to close out the game," Baker
said.



Mat Latos was trying to win his seventh straight decision to
start the season for Cincinnati. He allowed four runs and eight
hits in six innings.



Latos has won his last 10 regular-season decisions since losing
to the Cardinals on Aug. 24, and the Cincinnati bullpen has
blown saves in five of his games this season.



This time, however, Reds relievers did a nice job after Latos
left. They allowed two runs over 7 2-3 innings.



"I felt good, because I was throwing my pitches for strikes for
the most part," said Curtis Partch, who tossed four scoreless
innings. "It definitely helped me out to get some quick outs.
Definitely helped me to go those four innings and not throw too
many pitches."



Jeff Samardzija pitched six innings for Chicago, allowing five
runs and a season-high 10 hits in six innings. He walked four
and struck out six.



Since beating the White Sox with a two-hitter on May 27,
Samardzija is winless in three starts.



Chicago tied the score at 5 in the eighth Darwin Barney's
two-out single off Sam LeCure.



Cincinnati scored twice in the second on RBI singles by Devin
Mesoraco and Shin-Soo Choo and added two in the fifth on
run-scoring singles by Joey Votto and Brandon Phillips.



Jay Bruce had four hits for the Reds. Choo reached base three
times and scored twice.



Zack Cozart reached on Castro's second error at shortstop
leading off the 14th and advanced to third on Bruce's two-out
single. Rondon struck out Derrick Robinson to end the threat,
Cincinnati's first in extra innings.



NOTES: Baker and Sveum were both impressed by the pace of Game 1
of the Stanley Cup finals Wednesday night, won 4-3 in triple
overtime by the Chicago Blackhawks. Baker went to United Center
but left after regulation and said watching the game was an
inspiration to return to the World Series. Sveum watched the
entire game on TV. ... The Reds said it's possible RHP Johnny
Cueto could start Sunday against the Brewers. Cueto has been on
the disabled list since June 1 with a strained right shoulder.
... Cubs RHP Shawn Camp, on the DL since May 22 with sprained
right big toe, is expected to work two innings in a rehab
assignment Friday for Class-A Kane County. ... Bronson Arroyo
(6-5, 3.35 ERA) starts Friday for the Reds against Milwaukee RHP
Kyle Lohse (2-6, 4.03). ... Cubs RHP Edwin Jackson (2-8, 5.76)
opposes Mets RHP Shaun Marcum (0-7, 4.96) on Friday night.
