MLB: Cincinnati 5, Chicago Cubs 4

Aug. 19, 2012 at 4:26 PM   |   Comments

CINCINNATI, Aug. 19 (UPI) -- Xavier Paul tripled in the bottom of the ninth and scored on Ryan Hannigan's single Sunday, boosting Cincinnati over the Chicago Cubs 5-4.

With the game tied 4-4, Paul led off the ninth by smacking a pitch from Shawn Camp (3-6) into the right field corner, easily cruising into third base.

Then with the Cubs outfielders drawn in, Hannigan followed by lofting a fly ball that fell into left field for the game-winning hit, enabling the National League Central-leading Reds to take three victories in a four-game set with Chicago.

Hannigan finished with two RBI while Jay Bruce went 2-for-4 with a run-scoring single for Cincinnati, which won for the eighth time in nine contests overall.

Aroldis Chapman (5-4) tossed a scoreless ninth to get the victory in relief of starter Mat Latos, who allowed four runs (two earned) on six hits over eight frames.

The Cubs' Alfonso Soriano collected a pair of RBI, including a run-producing groundout in the eighth that forged a 4-4 tie.
