Reds lose 100 for 1st time since '82, Bote 5 RBIs lead Cubs

CINCINNATI (AP) The Cincinnati Reds lost 100 games for the first time in four decades, falling to the Cubs 15-2 in their season finale on Wednesday as David Bote drove in a season-high five runs.

Cincinnati lost seven of its last nine games to finish 62-100, one shy of the franchise record for losses set by the 1982 team that went 61-101. The Reds became the record-tying fourth team to lose 100 games this season, even for the bottom of the NL Central with Pittsburgh after just missing post-season play with an 83-79 record last season.

"One hundred losses, that number doesn't change a thing about how great I feel about every single person in that room - the players, the staff," Reds manager David Bell. "It doesn't change the focus and the goal for next season."
