CINCINNATI (AP) — Mat Latos pitched seven shutout innings and chipped in with a hit as the Cincinnati Reds opened a seven-game homestand with an 8-3 win over the Cleveland Indians on Wednesday night.

Zack Cozart hit a three-run homer off the left-field foul pole and Kristopher Negron added a two-run shot as the Reds won for the third time in four games.

Latos (4-3), making his 10th start since opening the season on the disabled list and being activated on June 14, allowed just one baserunner past second base before Yan Gomes led off Cleveland’s three-run eighth with his 16th homer.

Danny Salazar (4-5) lasted four innings while seeing his personal winning streak snapped at a career-high three.
