The Chicago Cubs and Cincinnati Reds combined for 10 home runs in the Reds’ 13-12 extra-inning win on Sunday afternoon, with Nick Castellanos notching the walk-off single in the bottom of the 10th inning.
Castellanos (2), Mike Moustakas, Tucker Barnhart and Eugenio Suárez all homered for the Reds, while Kris Bryant (2), Anthony Rizzo, Javier Báez and Ian Happ went yard for the Cubs. They missed the MLB record for most home runs by both teams, which was set by the Diamondbacks and the Phillies in 2019 when they slugged 13 homers collectively.
Trailing 12-9, Happ tied things up in the top of the eighth with a three-run blast, the 10th and final homer of the game. In the bottom half of the frame, Happ left with an injury after colliding with infielder Nico Hoerner, as both attempted to make a play on a fly ball to shallow center. Hoerner ended up completing the catch, while Happ — Chicago’s home run leader in 2020 — had to be carted off after being hit in the face.
