|The Cincinnati Reds have climbed back to respectability in the NL Central Kaleb McGary Jersey , thanks largely to suddenly solid pitching.
Tyler Mahle kept it up Friday by tossing one-run ball into the seventh inning and the Reds edged the Cubs 3-2 for their fifth straight victory over Chicago.
Adam Duvall and Scooter Gennett drove in runs as the Reds won for the 14th time in 18 games and ended the Cubs’ six-game winning streak. Billy Hamilton, Cincinnati’s No. 9 hitter, had three hits and leadoff man Jose Peraza had two.
Mahle (7-6) allowed five hits and struck out four over 6 2/3 innings to win his fourth straight decision. In his last seven starts, the 23-year-old right-hander has a 2.06 ERA.
”He’s just a great competitor, a very composed young man,” manager Jim Riggleman said. ”He just challenged hitters and really gave us another good ballgame.”
With a stiff wind blowing in from the north at Wrigley Field, Mahle could afford to be aggressive on a 70-degree day. Deep flies by both teams that might have carried into the bleachers in warmer conditions stayed in the ballpark.
”We had some guys who really got into some balls, and they didn’t go anywhere,” Mahle said. ”I knew being kind of a flyball pitcher that I was going to be OK.”
The Reds are 36-34 since Riggleman took over for Bryan Price on April 19 when they were 3-15.
”All of us realize that we’re a lot better than we what we were at the start Kendall Sheffield Jersey ,” Mahle said. ”We just go out and kind of expect to win at this point.”
Raisel Iglesias, Cincinnati’s third reliever, got the final five outs for his 17th save in 20 chances.
Albert Almora Jr. and Ben Zobrist drove in the Cubs’ runs.
Cubs starter Mike Montgomery (3-3) allowed three runs on six hits in five innings while walking two and hitting two batters. He scuffled in the fourth and fifth as the Reds built a 3-0 lead.
The Reds swept the Cubs, he reigning NL Central champions, in a four-game series in Cincinnati two weeks ago.
”They always could hit,” Cubs manager Joe Maddon said. ”The difference is they’re keeping the other side down now.
”It’s not just us. Their pitching is really, I think, the lynchpin of their success right now.”
The Reds jumped ahead 2-0 in the fourth after loading the bases with no outs.
Duvall lined a single up the middle to score Gennett, then Joey Votto came home on Scott Schebler’s double-play grounder.
Cincinnati tacked on a run in the fifth when Hamilton scored from third on Gennett’s sacrifice fly.
The Cubs cut it to 3-1 in the bottom half of the inning when Almora grounded into a forceout and closed to 3-2 in the eighth on Zobrist’s sac fly.
REDS ROSTER MOVE
INF Dilson Herrera was promoted from Triple-A Louisville to fill the spot vacated by LHP Cody Reed John Cominsky Jersey , who was sent down. Herrera had a .297 batting average and seven home runs at Louisville and was part of the Jay Bruce trade with the Mets last August.
Reds: Montgomery hit Votto with a pitch on the back of the helmet in the fifth, but Votto sprinted to first and remained in the game.
Cubs: Carl Edwards Jr. (right shoulder inflammation) was activated off the DL and Dillon Maples was optioned to Triple-A Iowa. … Theo Epstein said Yu Darvish (right triceps tendinitis/right elbow impingement and inflammation) is feeling better and is optimistic the star right-hander will make a ”solid contribution” this season. Epstein, the Cubs president of baseball operations, didn’t provide a timetable for the starter’s return. Darvish is in a strengthening phase. … Epstein said INF/OF Kris Bryant (left shoulder inflammation) had a good day in the batting cage on Friday and is nearing a return. Epstein planned to meet with Bryant on Friday to determine next steps, which might include a brief rehab assignment.
Reds RHP Matt Harvey (4-5, 4.91) takes the mound against Cubs RHP Tyler Chatwood (3-5, 4.54) on Saturday. Harvey has won his last three starts, with a 1.47 ERA over 18 1/3 innings. Chatwood yielded seven runs in five innings to the Twins in his last outing, but still got a win as Chicago outslugged Minnesota 14-9. He leads the majors with 66 walks.
The Latest on a suspected drunken-driving crash that killed Indianapolis Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson and another man (all times local):
Indiana prosecutors are seeking a DNA sample from the Guatemalan man charged in a drunken-driving crash that killed Indianapolis Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson and an Uber driver.
Ryan Mears is chief trial deputy for the Marion County Prosecutor’s Office. He says the request stems from the numerous aliases used by the suspect.
Investigators say the suspect Qadree Ollison Jersey , 37-year-old Manuel Orrego-Savala, has twice been deported from the U.S. and was illegally living in the country at the time of Sunday’s crash in Indianapolis. Along with Jackson, the crash killed 54-year-old Jeffrey Monroe.
Mears says investigators want to compare the DNA to samples taken from inside the pickup truck that hit and killed the two victims along Interstate 70.
Mears says the tests will help determine Orrego-Savala’s identity and presence in the truck. But he notes that there’s already ”pretty strong circumstantial evidence in the case.”

Curry says comments from Trump and others about the man’s immigration status fail to acknowledge the deaths of men killed: Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson and his Uber driver, Jeffrey Monroe.
Trump tweeted about the case Tuesday, saying it’s ”so disgraceful” that Jackson was killed by a person who was in the U.S. illegally. Trump also prodded Democrats to work with him on illegal immigration and border security.
The attorney for a Guatemalan man charged in a drunken-driving crash that killed Indianapolis Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson and another man says his client is distraught and confused.

The case has gained attention from President Donald Trump and others in the immigration debate. Authorities say Orrego-Savala has twice been deported from the U.S.
Torres says his client’s immigration status has no bearing on the crash case. He notes that Orrego-Savala has been living in Indiana for several years and doing construction work in the Indianapolis area.
Orrego-Savala is facing four felony counts stemming from the Sunday crash. The charges include causing death while driving intoxicated. The two most serious counts each carry maximum sentences of up to 20 years in prison.
