Cincinnati Reds lose to Chicago Cubs

CHICAGO – There have been times when the Cincinnati Reds have looked flat in the past two weeks and now they’re just trying to keep their playoff hopes from flatlining.

The Reds erased a three-run deficit in their series opener against the Chicago Cubs on Monday, but all that momentum disappeared when Frank Schwindel hit an RBI single through the right side of the infield in the eighth inning.

The result was a 4-3 loss at Wrigley Field in front of a crowd of 27,289. The Reds have lost seven of their last nine games, and nine of their last 13, falling one game behind the San Diego Padres in the wild-card race with 23 games remaining in their season. 

The soft September schedule that was supposed to be an advantage has turned into a curse.
