Chicago also claimed two of three in an April series at Cincinnati. Eugenio Suarez pops out to second base to Ben Zobrist.

He went 3 for 5 with a home run, 2 singles, and 2 RBI.

After the game, Schwarber said he could see wireless dangling from the sign and jokingly apologized.

One of his no-decisions came on April 21 when he allowed five runs on nine hits in 5 2/3 innings against the Reds.

After Billy Hamilton's single leading off the game, Hendricks had the speedy Hamilton picked off. Zack Cozart singles to right center field.

But Chicago was hardly through. One of the series' most dramatic moments, of course, was a Game 4 homer hit by Kyle Schwarber that landed on top of the scoreboard above the right-field bleachers.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Aaron Hicks hit a three-run homer to cap a five-run fourth inning, the Yankees piled up 16 hits and NY rolled over Kansas City. That brought up Kyle Schwarber, who lined an 0-2 pitch past Votto to bring in two more runs. That brought up Kyle Hendricks, and with 2 strikes he laid down a ideal bunt for a squeeze that brought home Zobrist and moved Montero to 3rd. Austin Brice was able to get Schwarber to ground out and end the inning, but the Cubs led 7-2.

Also of note was Kyle Schwarber's solo homerun in the second inning.

"Too many pitches, bad command tonight, so I've got some stuff to work on and iron it out for next times", Feldman said. Scott Feldman would then have a fastball get away from him and hit Jon Jay in the head to load the bases. Carl Edwards Jr. worked a flawless eighth and Wade Davis got three outs for his ninth save. The lights for the first couple of letters were out for the whole game.

First base umpire Ed Hickox called Votto safe, but replay officials in NY overturned the call. In the last four years, 41 different players have made 66 appearances. Left-hander Amir Garrett (3-2, 4.25 ERA) comes up from Louisville to make his seventh start for the Reds.

Cubs recall Pierce Johnson from Triple-A, option Candelario: The Cubs recalled right-hander Pierce Johnson from Triple-A Iowa and optioned infielder Jeimer Candelario to their top farm club. Johnson was 2-0 with a 2.31 ERA in 12 Triple-A outings. The Cubs are still minus-450 favorites to win the NL Central over the Cardinals, the plus-300 second choice. Chicago RHP Wade Davis has not allowed a home run in relief in his last 64 1/3 innings since September 24, 2015, the second-longest major league streak behind Baltimore LHP Zach Britton's 72-inning stretch.
