2022 MLB Field of Dreams Game score: Drew Smyly powers Cubs to 4-2 win over Reds in Iowa cornfield
The Chicago Cubs defeated the Cincinnati Reds 4-2 on Thursday night in the 2022 edition of Major League Baseball's Field of Dreams Game.
Like last year's contest between the Chicago White Sox and New York Yankees, Thursday's contest was played at the movie site in Dyersville, Iowa.
The Cubs staked out an early lead, plating three runs (all with two outs) in the first inning.
Seiya Suzuki opened the scoring with a double that made it 1-0. Nico Hoener then scored Suzuki,
growing the lead to 2-0, before scoring himself on an Ian Happ double. The Cubs would add another run in the fourth inning
on a Nick Madrigal single, but that initial outburst proved to be enough to secure the win.
It's worth noting that the two sides combined for zero home runs. Last year's contest saw the White Sox and Yankees launch a total of eight.
