Reds overcome Soler's HR, beat Cubs 7-5

CINCINNATI (AP) Skip Schumaker drove in a pair of runs with a double and a single on Wednesday night, and the Cincinnati Reds withstood Jorge Soler's first-at-bat homer and his RBI single for a 7-5 victory over the Chicago Cubs.

Soler, a 22-year-old prospect from Cuba, was called up Wednesday after getting a nine-year, $30 million deal from the Cubs in 2012. He started in right field and batted fifth.

After Luis Valbuena led off the second inning with a homer off Mat Latos (5-3), Soler hit a 2-1 pitch into the Reds' bullpen in center field. The last Cub to homer in his first at-bat also did it in Cincinnati - Starlin Castro off Homer Bailey on May 7, 2010.
