Steve Cishek was able to escape trouble in the tenth, then with one-away, Kyle Schwarber took matters into his own hands, delivering a Schwar-bomb to left. Cue the music, Fly the W, Cubs win this one 4-3.
Bringing a riveting National League Central battle to a close, Kyle Schwarber went yard in extra innings to give the Chicago Cubs a thrilling win over the Cincinnati Reds.
Out of the blue on Monday night, a trade between the Cubs and Royals was announced: LHP Mike Montgomery, for the catcher, Martin Maldonado.
The Cubs continue to do work down on the farm as one team continues to separate themselves from the back.
