Cubs top Reds on wild pitch in 9th

The Cubs bullpen blew a five-run lead after starter John Lackey threw six-innings of one-run ball Wednesday night. The Reds hit three home runs in the seventh and eighth to forge a 6-6 tie, but Javier Baez led off the ninth with a double and scored on a wild pitch with two outs to give the Cubs a 7-6 win at muggy Wrigley Field. Anthony Rizzo clubbed a grand slam in the first off Homer Bailey. Cubs manager Joe Maddon was ejected in the bottom of the ninth.
