National League Game Summary - Chicago at Cincinnati

Aug. 27, 2014 at 10:42 PM   |   Comments

Mat Latos pitched into the eighth inning and Skip Schumaker drove in two runs in Cincinnati's 7-5 victory over the Chicago Cubs at Great American Ball Park.

Cuban outfielder Jorge Soler homered in his first career plate appearance, and his RBI single capped a three-run top of the eighth to get the visitors within a run, but pinch-hitter Chris Heisey homered off Zac Rosscup leading off the bottom of the inning.

Latos (5-3) had a season-best 10 strikeouts over seven-plus frames and was charged with seven hits and four runs. He's 3-0 over his last six starts and hasn't lost since July 27 against Washington.

The Reds have won three of four since a seven-game skid.

Jacob Turner (4-8), who was acquired from Miami on Aug. 8 for a pair of minor league pitchers, suffered the loss in his first start in a Cubs uniform.

Luis Valbuena also homered for the Cubs, who had a four-game winning streak broken.
