Bases-loaded walk gives Cubs victory over Reds

 CHICAGO (AP) -- David Bote drove in the game-winning run with a bases-loaded walk in the 10th inning, lifting the Chicago Cubs to a 6-5 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Sunday.

   Javier Baez had two hits and two RBIs for Chicago, which has won its last nine games in comeback fashion. Albert Almora Jr. and Ian Happ also had two hits apiece, and Addison Russell drove in three runs.

   The Cubs trailed 4-3 in the seventh. They scored four times in the eighth inning on Saturday for an 8-7 win.

   Eugenio Suarez and Adam Duvall homered for the Reds, who had their five-series winning streak snapped.

   Luke Farrell (3-3) worked a clean 10th inning for the win.

   Willson Contreras led off the 10th with a walk against Jackson Stephens (2-2). Contreras then advanced on a wild pitch with Victor Caratini at the plate. After Caratini struck out, Happ was intentionally walked.

   Russell then hit a weak roller to first base. Joey Votto fielded the ball cleanly and had an easy play, but tried to take the ball out of his glove before reaching the bag -- to hold Contreras at third -- and bobbled it. Russell was initially called out, but the call was overturned following a review, loading the bases with one out.

   Bote worked the count to 3-2 and then took a high fastball for ball four.

   Baez's two-run single in the seventh gave the Cubs a 5-4 lead. But Duvall led off the ninth with a drive to left off Brandon Morrow. It was Morrow's second blown save of the season.

   ROSTER MOVES

   The Cubs placed right-hander Anthony Bass on the 10-day disabled list due to an illness and brought up right-hander James Norwood from Triple-A Iowa. The move with Bass is retroactive to Thursday.

   The 24-year-old Norwood began the season with Double-A Tennessee and was promoted to Iowa on June 25. He has tossed 5 1/3 scoreless innings over four appearances with Iowa.

   TRAINER'S ROOM

   Cubs: 3B Kris Bryant (left shoulder inflammation) will begin a rehab assignment with Double-A Tennessee on Monday. Bryant said he is hoping to rejoin the team in San Francisco during the three-game series that begins on Monday.

   UP NEXT

   Reds: RHP Anthony DeSclafani (3-1, 5.08 ERA) starts the opener of a three-game series at Cleveland on Monday night. RHP Mike Clevinger (7-3, 3.11 ERA) goes for the Indians.

   Cubs:  RHP Kyle Hendricks (5-8, 4.27 ERA) takes the mound in the opener of a three-game series at San Francisco on Monday night. LHP Andrew Suarez (3-5, 3.92) pitches for the Giants.
