Sampson strong again as Cubs beat Reds for 5th straight win

CHICAGO (AP) — Adrian Sampson threw seven efficient innings, Nico Hoerner drove in three runs and the Chicago Cubs won their fifth straight, 6-1 over the Cincinnati Reds on Friday. Sampson (4-5) gave up one run on three hits, struck out six and walked two in his 97-pitch outing. He matched his longest start of the season and extended his streak of allowing one run or fewer to five consecutive starts. “It’s all just working out for me,” said Sampson, who improved to 3-1 in six September starts. “We’re on a good roll.” He finished his day by getting Mike Siani to ground into a double play, stranding a runner at third.

Hoskins homers, Phillies end skid in 5-1 win over Nationals

WASHINGTON (AP) — Rhys Hoskins hit his 30th home run, Bailey Falter pitched six scoreless innings and the Philadelphia Phillies boosted their lead in the National League wild-card race with a 5-1 victory over the Washington Nationals on Friday in the opener of a planned day-night doubleheader. The second game was rained out and will be made up as part of day-night doubleheader on Saturday. Philadelphia (84-72) snapped a five-game losing streak that included getting swept three games by the Chicago Cubs and moved a full game ahead of the Milwaukee Brewers for the final NL wild card. “We’re competitive. We care, probably too much at times, but in this game you can’t dwell on it for too long,” Hoskins said of getting past the sweep. “We’re a half-game up, I guess a game up now. If we continue to win games we’re going to be where we want to be.”
