CHICAGO — Rookie David Bote struck again, connecting in the 10th inning for another game-ending home run that sent the Chicago Cubs over the Cincinnati Reds 3-2 on Friday for their third straight victory.

Bote got behind 0-2 before driving Raisel Iglesias' next pitch deep to left field with one out. The infielder hit a bottom-of-the-ninth, two-out grand slam that beat Washington 4-3 on Aug. 12.

No. the Cubs shouldn't trade Kris Bryant

  No. the Cubs shouldn't trade Kris Bryant As David Bote flipped his bat after connecting on his game-ending walk-off grand slam for the Chicago Cubs with two strikes and two outs in the 9th on ESPN Sunday Night Baseball, Bote-mania was sweeping the nation. Or at least Wrigleyville.Once the initial excitement wore off, thoughts changed to how the Cubs could get Bote in the lineup on a regular basis. With his good at-bats, slick glove at third and penchant for being clutch in limited opportunities, how can the Cubs keep him at third when a certain former Rookie of the Year and MVP comes back from a sore shoulder?I’m speaking of Kris Bryant, of course.

#MLB # Cubs # Reds #Baseball --- Kyle Schwarber hits an opposite field walk-off home run that lands in the basket in left center field to give the Chicago Cubs a 4- 3 victory over the Cincinnati Reds in 10 innings tonight.

Iglesias (2-2) had made seven straight scoreless appearances. Jesse Chavez (4-2), the sixth Cubs reliever, pitched a scoreless inning for the win.

Daniel Murphy homered in the eighth for NL Central-leading Chicago, and Javier Baez had a run-scoring single in the sixth. Alec Mills pitched 5 2/3 innings of one-run ball in his first major league start.

Last-place Cincinnati wasted a terrific start by Matt Harvey in its fourth loss in five games. Harvey struck out six in 5 1/3 innings after he was reportedly claimed off waivers by the contending Brewers and remained with the Reds when they couldn't work out a deal.

BOX SCORE: CUBS 3, REDS 2, 10 INN.

Bote and Albert Almora Jr. struck out swinging before Murphy drove the next pitch from Jared Hughes over the wall in right for his first homer since he was acquired in a trade with Washington on Tuesday. It was just the third homer allowed by Hughes in 57 appearances this year.

The crowd of 37,760 roared as Murphy rounded the bases, and the veteran second baseman acknowledged the cheers by popping out of the dugout for a curtain call.

But Cincinnati responded with Eugenio Suarez's leadoff drive on a 2-2 pitch from Pedro Strop in the ninth, tying it at 2. It was Suarez's 29th homer, extending his career high, and just the second blown save for Strop since closer Brandon Morrow was placed on the disabled list last month.

Cincinnati jumped in front on consecutive doubles by Mason Williams and Phillip Ervin leading off the second. It looked as if Williams had connected for his second homer, but a replay review showed the ball caromed off the front of a post holding up the basket in left-center.

Williams had to go back to second, but he scored anyway when Ervin followed with a liner into the gap in left-center.

Mills then retired his next 14 batters before Scooter Gennett reached on left fielder Kyle Schwarber's error with two out in the sixth. Mills was pulled after issuing a walk to Suarez, and Randy Rosario fanned Williams for the final out of the inning.

Daniel Murphy’s message to gay Cubs fans: “Oh dear. I hope you would root for the Cubs.”

  Daniel Murphy’s message to gay Cubs fans: “Oh dear. I hope you would root for the Cubs.” The Cubs waiver-wire acquisition of Daniel Murphy would be seen as the perfect type of transaction if all we saw were his numbers. Unfortunately, Daniel Murphy is a person, not just his numbers. And Murphy is on the record as “disagreeing” with the “gay lifestyle”, comments Murphy hasn’t ever really walked back to any degree. Murphy was always going to be asked about those comments in Chicago, but when he got the question today, it wasn’t apparent that he expected it.
