Cubs win! Great comeback win over the Reds, 5-3. Despite 6 2/3 innings of no-hit ball tossed by Reds rookie Brandon Finnegan and a 3-0 deficit, the Comeback Cubs did it again to win the home opener at Wrigley.

J-Hey hit a clutch two-out, two-run single in the 7th and Addison Russell blasted a three-run homer in the 8th to put the first place Cubs on top for good. The offense was efficient, scoring their five runs on only three hits (seven walks helped!).

Hector Rondon struck out the side -- all looking -- in the 9th to earn his second save of the season.

The NL-best Cubs face off again vs. the Reds on Wednesday night.
