Bruce, Choo help Reds beat Cubs 6-5

Posted: Updated:

CHICAGO (AP) - Jay Bruce had two RBIs and scored a run, Shin-Soo Choo drove in a run and scored twice, and the Cincinnati Reds held off the Chicago Cubs 6-5 on Friday.

The Cubs scored three runs in the ninth against Reds closer Aroldis Chapman before reliever J.J. Hoover came on and struck out Darwin Barney with the bases loaded to pick up his first save.

Nate Schierholtz drew a two-out bases-loaded walk and Welington Castillo followed with a two-run single to pull the Cubs within one. After pinch-hitter Cody Ransom drew a walk to load the bases again, Hoover replaced Chapman.

Mike Leake (2-1) gave up two runs and nine hits in 5 2-3 innings, earned his fourth straight decision over the Cubs with help from five relievers.

Devin Mesoraco, Todd Frazier and Zack Cozart also had run-scoring hits to help the Reds hand Carlos Villanueva (1-2) the loss.
