After taking two of three games against the Colorado Rockies last week, the Cubs have taken game one of three against the Cincinnati Reds, 6-7.
The Cubs rallied late once again, this time behind Jorge Soler and Arismendy Alcantara, the latter delivering a walk off RBI Single with one out in the 10th inning.
“When you start doing things like this, you believe you can win late, and that’s really important,” Cubs manager Joe Maddon said. “It’s also really important to feel you can come from behind, which we’ve done two days in a row late. Those are two of the best things you can possibly get across to a young team. Yes, I’ve enjoyed it.”
