These aren’t just pretty boy prospects the Cubs have amassed. They’ll battle you.
Pittsburgh police didn’t dispute Twitter claims by the wife of Cincinnati Reds pitcher Mat Latos that she was punched and had her hair pulled by a fan during the National League wild-card game, but said they consider the matter “closed” and won’t file criminal charges.
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.
Xavier Paul led off the ninth inning with a pinch-hit triple and Ryan Hanigan followed with a single Sunday, giving the Cincinnati Reds a 5-4 win over the Chicago Cubs.
Cincinnati right-hander Mat Latos strained his left calf during a 7-4 loss to the Chicago Cubs on Tuesday, providing another pitching concern for the Reds.
