Cubs score three runs in 10th to defeat Braves

Patrick Wisdom’s two-run homer capped a three-run, 10th-inning rally as the visiting Chicago Cubs beat the Atlanta Braves 6-3 on Wednesday.

The Cubs greeted Atlanta reliever Tyler Matzek with an RBI double by Willson Contreras to open the inning. Two batters later, Wisdom hit a 3-2 pitch over the center field fence for his third homer.

The victory ended Chicago’s two-game losing streak and evened the three-game series a game apiece.

The winning pitcher was David Robertson (1-0), who pitched 1 1/3 innings and struck out three. Rowan Wick tossed a scoreless 10th inning to earn his first save.

Matzek (0-1) struck out two but allowed three runs, two earned, on three hits in two-thirds of an inning.

The Cubs scored a run in the second inning on Nick Madrigal’s infield grounder.

The Braves loaded the bases with two outs in the second against Mark Leiter Jr., but he got Ozzie Albies on a comebacker to the mound to end the threat.

Atlanta starter Charlie Morton was struck in the left ankle by Nico Hoerner’s sharp grounder to end the second. He returned to start the third but was not effective. The Cubs scored twice when Rafael Ortega and Seiya Suzuki hit back-to-back doubles and Suzuki scored after a wild pitch and Ian Happ’s sacrifice fly to left field.

Atlanta got its first run in the fifth when Matt Olson walked and scored on Travis d’Arnaud’s two-out single.

The Braves rallied to tie the game with two runs in the eighth inning against sidewinder Mychal Givens. Dansby Swanson swatted a two-run single into right field to make it 3-3. The Cubs brought in Robertson, who retired Albies on a routine grounder to second base to end the uprising.

Neither starting pitcher figured in the decision. Morton allowed three runs on four hits, four walks and one strikeout in his 2 1/3 innings. Leiter pitched two scoreless innings and allowed two hits and one walk.
