CHICAGO -- Pinch-hitter Julio Borbon had a two-out RBI single in the 14th inning, helping the Chicago Cubsbeat the Reds 6-5 Thursday and end Cincinnati's record 12-game winning streak at Wrigley Field.

The Cubs hadn't beaten the Reds at Wrigley since last August 9. With the win, the Cubs avoided a four-game sweep and improved to 3-10 against the Reds this season.

Hector Rondon (1-0) pitched two of the Chicago bullpen's eight scoreless innings. Jonathan Broxton(2-2) was the loser in the longest game for both teams this season.

Starlin Castro led off the 14th with a single off Broxton, stole second when Anthony Rizzo struck out and got to third on Alfonso Soriano's groundout to first. Nate Schierholtz was intentionally walked before borbon's hit.

The Reds return to Great American Ball Park Friday night with the first of three against the Brewers with the action on 700 WLW.
