Contreras homers, Morel also goes deep as Cubs beat Reds 8-3

CHICAGO (AP) Christopher Morel unleashed a laser from center field toward the plate. In a flash, the Cubs let loose.

Chicago catcher Willson Contreras pointed toward the dugout and let out a roar. Screaming pitcher Justin Steele pounded his glove several times.

Morel's rocket throw to cut down Tommy Pham trying to score on a fly to center got the Cubs out of a bases-loaded jam and helped propel them to an 8-3 win over the Cincinnati Reds on Wednesday night.
