Reds 7, Cubs 5

CINCINNATI — Skip Schumaker drove in two runs, and the Reds withstood Jorge Soler's first-at-bat homer and an RBI single. Soler, a 22-year-old prospect from Cuba, got a nine-year, $30 million deal from the Cubs. He was called up earlier in the day, started in rightfield and batted fifth. After Luis Valbuena led off the second inning with a homer off Mat Latos, Soler hit a 2-and-1 pitch into the Cincinnati bullpen in centerfield.
