Latos Blanks Cubs for 8 Innings in Reds' 2-0 Win
CHICAGO (AP) -- Mat Latos threw eight scoreless innings, and Brandon Phillips hit a two-run homer in the seventh inning to lead the Cincinnati Reds to a 2-0 win over All-Star Travis Wood and the Chicago Cubs on Monday night.

Latos, who had been 3-0 with a 1.73 ERA since the All-Star break, allowed six hits and struck out nine for the Reds, who gained a half-game on idle Pittsburgh and St. Louis in the NL Central.

Aroldis Chapman struck out the side in the ninth inning for his 28th save in 32 tries to hand the Cubs their third straight home shutout loss. They have gone 32 2/3 innings without a run at Wrigley Field.

Phillips provided all the offense with his 15th homer of the season. He hit an 0-2 pitch from Wood to score Todd Frazier, who had walked.
