Leake, Frazier leads Reds

Leake, Frazier leads Reds

Mike Leake combined with Aroldis Chapman on a three-hitter and Todd Frazier hit a tiebreaking home run in the seventh inning against Travis Wood , leading the Cincinnati Reds over the Chicago Cubs 2-1 Wednesday for their record 12th straight win at Wrigley Field.

Leake (6-3) won for the fourth time in five decisions, allowing Nate Schierholtz 's second-inning home run into the right-field bleachers, his eighth of the season. Chapman struck out two in a perfect ninth for his 17th save in 19 chances.

The previous record for consecutive wins by a visitor at Wrigley was 10, a mark set by the St. Louis Cardinals (1943-44) and matched by the New York Giants (1950-51) and Montreal (1982-83), according to STATS.
