CINCINNATI (AP) — Jay Bruce hit a tying double and scored on Cesar Izturis’ two-out single in the 13th inning Monday night, rallying the Cincinnati Reds to a 5-4 victory that gave the Chicago Cubs their fourth straights loss.

Luis Valbuena hit a two-run homer in the top of the 13th off Alfredo Simon (2-1) for a 4-2 Cubs lead.

Michael Bowden (0-1) couldn’t hold it. He gave up a single by Xavier Paul, Brandon Phillips’ double and Bruce’s two-run double that tied it.

Izturis’ single past diving shortstop Starlin Castro sent the Reds to their seventh victory in eight games on their homestand.

Long games are the norm in Cincinnati, where the Reds have gone extra innings four times and had another game suspended overnight because of rain. They’ve played 13 innings three times.
