Hicks, who had reached base on an infield single and advanced to second on an error, scored on a failed fielder’s choice off the bat of Starlin Castro.
The Cubs (16-15) put the tying run in scoring position in the bottom half of the frame, but couldn’t bring Kris Bryant home.
New York (20-9) carried a 4-1 lead into the bottom of the ninth, but closer Aroldis Chapman blew the save.
It was a night full of history as the contest marked the longest interleague game ever played. The two teams also set a new record for most combined strikeouts with 48.
More to come.
