Contreras gets ovations, Stroman goes 6, Cubs beat Reds 8-1

CHICAGO (AP) Willson Contreras got several standing ovations in what could be his final home game at Wrigley Field, Marcus Stroman threw six scoreless innings and the surging Chicago Cubs won their seventh straight, beating the Cincinnati Reds 8-1 on Sunday.

Nelson Velazquez drove in four runs, helping Chicago match its best run since a seven-game streak late last year. The Cubs, aided by three walks and a hit batter, knocked out a Chase Anderson in a five-run first and cruised to their 11th win in 12 games in their home finale.

"It means a lot to me," said Contreras, whose contract is expiring. "That's why I wanted to come back and play this whole week, because I don't know what the future holds. I don't know if it's going to be my last game with the Cubs or not. ... If I had to redo it, I would do it again because I play (for) one of the best fanbases in baseball and they make this place special."
