The Cubs trailed the Cincinnati Reds for past 11 innings dating back to the sixth inning of Monday’s game until Kyle Schwarber changed that in the seventh inning on Tuesday night.

With two outs and down by one in the bottom of the seventh inning, Cubs rookie Kyle Schwarber hit a two-run bomb into the center-field bleachers off Reds reliever Burke Badenhop.

The Cubs rookie knew it was gone right away. He even flipped the bat.

This was Schwarber’s 13th home run of the season, and it was the game-winning run as the Cubs won 5-4.

Schwarber finished the game 2-3 with two RBI and three runs-scored.
