Chicago, IL (Sports Network) - Julio Borbon delivered a pinch-hit, two-out, game-winning RBI single in the bottom of the 14th inning to help the Cubs steal a 5-4 victory over the Cincinnati Reds in the finale of a four-game set at Wrigley Field.
Facing the Reds' sixth reliever of the game, Jonathan Broxton (2-2), Starlin Castro opened up the frame with a single. The next batter, Anthony Rizzo, struck out, but Castro stole second. Alfonso Soriano then hit a slow chopper back to the mound to move Castro to third and, after Nate Schierholtz was intentionally walked, Bourbon came through with the difference-making single to left.
Cincinnati held a 5-4 advantage heading into the eighth, but the Cubs rallied off reliever Sam LeCure. Schierholtz walked with one out and Luis Valbuena followed with a single. After Welington Castillo flew out, Darwin Barney came through in the clutch with a game-tying RBI single to right.
Hector Rondon (1-0) earned the win after escaping a jam in the top of the 14th. With runners on second and third and two outs, Rondon struck out Derrick Robinson to end the threat in a 10-pitch at-bat.
Jay Bruce had four hits and Joey Votto drove in two runs for the Reds, who had won 12 straight at Wrigley -- the best mark by any opponent at the Cubs' home park.
