CHICAGO (AP) — Jason Heyward hit a three-run homer in the bottom of the 10th inning to give the Chicago Cubs a 4-1 win over the Cincinnati Reds for their eighth victory in nine games. Ian Happ homered for the third straight game, extending his hitting streak to a career-high nine games and helping the Cubs win their third consecutive series. Joey Votto launched his 29th homer of the season, but his fourth-inning solo shot was all the offense Cincinnati could muster. The Reds have lost four of six as they fight for a playoff spot. They entered the day tied with San Diego for the second NL wild card.
