Cincinnati, OH (Sports Network) - Welington Castillo plated the go-ahead run with a two-out double in the top of the 10th inning, and the Chicago Cubs avoided a three-game sweep with a 5-4 come-from-behind win over the Cincinnati Reds at Great American Ball Park. The Cubs overcame a four-run deficit with some clutch two-out hitting to snap a season-worst six-game losing streak. Scott Hairston drew a two-out walk to extend the 10th for Castillo, who grounded a J.J. Hoover (0-4) pitch past third baseman Todd Frazier and into the left-field corner. Kevin Gregg (1-0) recorded the final out with two runners aboard in the ninth and worked out of a jam in the bottom of the 10th. He issued a one-out walk to Frazier before pinch-hitter Jack Hannahan reached on catcher's interference. The Reds, who failed to get a hit after the fifth inning, couldn't capitalize on their opportunity as Ryan Hanigan flied out and Donald Lutz grounded out.
