Chicago Cubs 5 – Cincinnati Reds 7

Highlights:  The 40-year-old righty, Bronson Arroyo, gave his best performance yet in his long comeback from elbow problems, pitching three-hit ball over six innings on Sunday, and the Cincinnati Reds salvaged a 7-5 victory . Arroyo worked fast, varied the angles of his deliveries, and kept `em guessing with his minimalist pitches. Arroyo allowed Anthony Rizzo‘s two-run homer, his third of the series, and struck out seven batters for the first time since May 13, 2014.

Holland (2-2) allowed one run on three hits in six innings. He walked three and struck out six in lowering his earned run average to 1.99. Indians starter Danny Salazar (1-2) allowed four runs on seven hits in five innings.
