Julio Borbon has winning hit in 14th for Cubs

Posted: Updated:

CHICAGO (AP) - Pinch-hitter Julio Borbon had a two-out RBI single in the 14th inning, helping the Chicago Cubs beat the Reds 6-5 Thursday and end Cincinnati's record 12-game winning streak at Wrigley Field.

The Cubs hadn't beaten the Reds at Wrigley since last August 9. With the win, the Cubs avoided a 4-game sweep and improved to 3-10 against the Reds this season.

Hector Rondon (1-0) pitched 2 of the Chicago bullpen's eight scoreless innings. Jonathan Broxton (2-2) was the loser in the longest game for both teams this season.

Starlin Castro led off the 14th with a single off Broxton, stole second when Anthony Rizzo struck out and got to third on Alfonso Soriano's groundout to first. Nate Schierholtz was intentionally walked before borbon's hit.
