CINCINNATI (AP) — Taylor Teagarden singled home the tiebreaking run off Aroldis Chapman with two outs in the ninth inning Wednesday night, completing the Chicago Cubs’ biggest comeback of the season for a 6-5 win and a doubleheader split with the Cincinnati Reds.

Cincinnati won the opener 9-1 behind another strong showing by Mike Leake, who could be traded this month.

The Cubs overcame a five-run deficit to get the split, completed with Teagarden’s pinch-hit single off Chapman (3-4). Hector Rondon (4-2) escaped a bases-loaded threat in the eighth, and Jason Motte finished it for his sixth save in as many chances.

Leake (8-5) went eight innings in the opener to beat the Cubs for the fifth straight time. Todd Frazier extended his post-derby surge with three more hits, including a two-run double in the first inning off Kyle Hendricks (4-5).
