The Cubs hit just three hits, but David Botes’ homerun at 5e round still allowed them to sign a 1-0 victory over the Reds.
While the Cubs had only got one hit, a single from Javier Baez in 4e round, Bote narrowed a 366-foot home run that opened the mark. Chicago needed no more to win.
On the mound of the Reds, Vladimir Gutierrez can not be blamed for not offering a good performance. He limited the Cubs to just two hits, but he gave up one too many.
The Reds’ attack, for its part, hit seven hits, but failed to complete and put points on the board.
This is the fifth victory in a row for the Cubs, who meet again with the Reds on Saturday and Sunday.
The Cubs give 28 wins and 22 losses this season.
