Reds starter Mike Leake allowed just one run on three hits over eight innings to lead the Reds to a 2-1 victory at Wrigley Field on Wednesday afternoon. It was the Reds’ 12th straight victory over the Cubs at the team’s home since 1914. No team had ever beaten the Cubs in 11 straight games at Wrigley Field before the Reds’ victory on Tuesday and Cincinnati has a chance to extend that streak on Thursday afternoon as they finish a four-game set here.

Leake gave up a second-inning homer to Cubs right fielder Nate Schierholtz to put the Reds in an early hole.

The Reds tied the game in the sixth when Shin-Soo Choo, dropped from his leadoff spot for a day because of his lack of success against Cubs starter Travis Wood and left-handed pitchers in general, hit a one-out double for just the second Reds hit of the day. After Joey Votto flied out, Brandon Phillips came through with the big hit once again, singling up the middle to score Choo, tying the game.

An inning later, Todd Frazier led off the inning with his second homer in as many games. Before Tuesday night, Frazier hadn’t homered since April 24, also against the Cubs.
