Extra-Inning Win by Cubs over Reds
The Cincinnati Reds got a superb performance from pitcher Hudson Boyd, but the Chicago Cubs still won the game, 3-2. Boyd was named the player of the game despite the loss. He threw 8 innings of 4-hit ball. James McDonald picked up the win in relief, improving his record to 1-1. Marc Rzepczynski was tagged with the loss. Kenneth Giles closed the game out for Chicago, earning his 2nd save.

Bill Lowe had a nice at-bat for the Cubs with no one out in the top of the ninth. With a runner on 1st, the first baseman drew a walk, which would prove important in the Chicago win.

Lowe called the triumph "a good team win."

Chicago, now 3-2, has gotten their season off to a good start.
