Pinch-hitter Julio Borbon singled home the winning run with two outs in the 14th inning as the Chicago Cubs beat Cincinnati 6-5 on Thursday to end the Reds’ record 12-game winning streak at Wrigley Field.

The Cubs hadn’t beaten Cincinnati at home since last Aug. 9.

Hector Rondon (1-0) pitched two innings for the win, and Chicago’s bullpen finished with eight scoreless innings.

Davis DeJesus homered, and Nate Schierholtz became the first player this season to hit two triples in a game for the Cubs.

Jonathan Broxton (2-2) took the loss.

Starlin Castro led off the 14th with a single against Broxton and stole second before going to third on Alfonso Soriano’s groundout to first. Schierholtz was intentionally walked before Borbon came through.

Cardinals 2, Mets 1: Adam Wainwright became the majors’ first 10-game winner by pitching seven scoreless in New York, sending Matt Harvey to his first loss of the season.

Wainwright (10-3) retired his first 11 batters and allowed four hits with six strikeouts.

St. Louis scored in the third on Matt Carpenter’s RBI triple. Allen Craig drove in a run in the eighth, his 49th RBI of the season.
