Seiya Suzuki hit the 11th home run of his rookie season Tuesday as the Chicago Cubs came from behind to defeat the Cincinnati Reds 9-3. With a runner on third and two outs in the fifth, Suzuki tied the game at 3-3 when he blasted Justin Dunn's 1-1 fastball over the left-center wall at Wrigley Field. Batting second, Suzuki went 1-for-3 before drawing two walks. The latter came with the bases loaded and capped a three-run seventh for the Cubs, making it an 8-3 game. Suzuki, who homered for the first time since Aug. 21, raised his batting average to .261.
