Cubs sweep Blue Jays with wild 6-5 victory in 10 innings

CHICAGO (AP) Alex Avila felt for Raffy Lopez. It was quite a day for catchers.

Avila capped Chicago's three-run 10th inning with a two-run single, and the Cubs swept the Toronto Blue Jays with a wild 6-5 victory on Sunday.

With two outs and the bases loaded, Avila lined a base hit into right field against Roberto Osuna (3-4). Ben Zobrist scored easily and Javier Baez slid in safely just ahead of the tag attempt by Lopez.
