Reds Power Past Cubs

CHICAGO (AP) - Joey Votto had three hits, Todd Frazier hit a two-run single and the Cincinnati Reds completed a three-game sweep of the Chicago Cubs with a 7-4 victory yesterday.

The Cubs rallied for three runs off Mat Latos to make it a one-run game in the fifth inning, helped when Reds center fielder Shin-Soo Choo and second baseman Brandon Phillips collided trying to catch Alfonso Soriano's short fly.

Latos (3-0) extended his scoreless streak to 21 innings, tying a career high, but didn't pitch past the fifth inning for the first time in seven starts this season. He struck out six and walked three.

J.J. Hoover earned his second save.

Edwin Jackson (0-5) struggled again for the Cubs, allowing four runs and eight hits in five innings.
