Bote hits another walk-off homer to lift Cubs past Reds
David Bote was at it again as the Chicago Cubs topped the Cincinnati Reds in a 3-2 walk-off victory.
Outfielder Bote hit a home run in the bottom of the 10th inning to see the Cubs past the Reds in MLB on Friday.
It comes after Bote delivered a walk-off grand slam against the Washington Nationals earlier this month.
Newly acquired infielder Daniel Murphy hit a home run in the bottom of the eighth to put Chicago ahead 2-1.
But Cincinnati infielder Eugenio Suarez forced extra innings with a solo home run of his own one inning later, setting up Bote's second game-winning blast of August.
Murphy picked up two hits in his second game with the Cubs. Shortstop Javier Baez also drove in a run for Chicago.
Reds starter Matt Harvey surrendered one run and five hits in 5.3 innings on the mound. Reliever Raisel Iglesias was charged with the loss after he allowed Bote's homer.
The win moved the Cubs to 74-53 for the year, while the Reds fell to 56-73.
