(CINCINNATI, OH) - Ramon Hernandez drove home the go-ahead run with a bases-loaded walk in the bottom of the seventh as the Cincinnati Reds got past the Chicago Cubs 3-1.
Mike Leake, who became the first player since 2000 to go straight to the major leagues without a trip to the minors, had a wild afternoon for the Reds.
The 22-year-old right-hander pitched his way out of a bases-loaded, nobody out jam in the first inning without allowing a run.
Leake, who did not figure in the decision, pitched into the seventh inning, allowing a run on four hits while walking seven and striking out five.
He also collected his first two major league hits.
Derrek Lee drove in the lone Chicago run with an RBI single in the fifth as the Cubs dropped two of three in the series.
