WATCH: Highlights from Cubs-Reds extra-inning thriller, including five homers


by - Senior Writer -

CINCINNATI, Ohio — Featuring five home runs, Wednesday's exciting matchup at Great American Ball Park between the Chicago Cubs (25-15) and the Cincinnati Reds (19-24) was quite a thriller. The divisional contest went to extra innings and ended with Reds right fielder Yasiel Puig smacking a walk-off hit to deep center field in the bottom of the 10th.

Prior to extras, five home runs were hit on the night, including Cubs infielder Addison Russell's first homer of the season. Reds third baseman Eugenio Suarez hit the most important home run of the matchup, though, with his game-tying 2-run blast in the eighth erasing a late deficit and leading to a 6-5 Cincinnati victory.
