CHICAGO (AP) - Eugenio Suarez drove in Todd Frazier with an unearned tie-breaking run in the 10th inning, and the banged-up Cincinnati Reds rebounded for a 5-4 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Friday, their fifth win in six games.

Suarez, playing in his second game after being called up for the injured shortstop Zack Cozart, singled through a drawn-in infield off Hector Rondon (3-1) for his first RBI with the Reds.

Cincinnati's J.J. Hoover (5-0) pitched a scoreless eighth and ninth for the win. Aroldis Chapman struck out two in scoreless 10th for his 13th save in 14 chances

Frazier hit his team-leading 18th homer and drove in a run with a double. Ivan Dejesus Jr. and Brayan Pena also had RBIs in Cincinnati's three-run first inning.
