Alec Mills came up from Triple A and threw 5 2/3 innings with 1 earned run 8 K's and a walk.  With the Cubs and Reds tied at 1 Daniel Murphy hit his 7th HR and first as a Cub to give the North Siders a 2-1 lead.  Unfortunately Pedro Strop would give up a tying HR to Eugenio Suarez in the top of the 9th but really that was setting the stage for David Bote.  Bote hit his 5th HR of the season in the bottom of the 10th, a no doubter to LF that reached Waveland Avenue on an 0-2 pitch.  The series will continue tomorrow at 1:20 CST as Jose Quintana will face off against Luis Castillo.

Bote Walk Off HR
