(TSX / STATS) -- CHICAGO -- The Cincinnati Reds' 2018 tryout tour may have uncovered a potential star in Phillip Ervin.

Ervin drove in four runs, including a go-ahead two-run homer in the seventh inning, as the Cincinnati Reds blew an early nine-run lead and then outlasted the Chicago Cubs 13-10 on Thursday afternoon.

Ervin, who collected his first hit and home run on Wednesday, was 3-for-4 in his first start. He homered off Justin Grimm (1-2) to give the Reds an 11-9 lead after they held a 9-0 advantage following the second inning.
