Cubs 4 – Reds 3
With a berth to the final four on the line, the Cubs and Reds treated fans to a close ball game that almost saw the Reds complete the comeback and provide the tournament with its first upset.
The Cubs tied the game in the third inning, and scored three more in the fourth, and held off a Reds rally in the game’s final frame to move on to the semifinals.
The Reds got on the board in the top of the first when Lane Marquardt, the No. 2 batter, hit a double, the first of two on the day, and later stole home.
