CHICAGO — With just the second hit of the night for the Chicago Cubs, catcher Willson Contreras got underneath a slider and sent it out to left-center for a game-tying solo blast in the seventh inning on Wednesday. The dinger came on an 0-2 count with two outs and marked Contreras' 24th long ball of the season.

Cincinnati Reds reliever Robert Stephenson was taken deep on the 369-foot jack, which left the bat at 94 miles per hour and 28 degrees. The home run at Wrigley Field was reviewed for possible fan interference, as a fan reached out above the basket and caught the home-run ball, but the call stood, making the score 2-2.
