Mike Olt, Darwin Barney and Welington Castillo hit home runs for the Cubs, who matched their season-high total for runs in an 8-4 victory over the Cincinnati Reds. The Cubs snapped a five-game losing streak while the Reds saw their three-game winning streak end.

The Pirates traded minor-league reliever Zack Thornton and a player to be named for Davis. The Pirates are hoping Davis can regain his form of two years ago when he hit 32 home runs and had 90 RBIs.

Cincinnati Reds closer Aroldis Chapman has been cleared to throw batting practice for the first time since he was hit in the face by a line drive during an exhibition game on March 10. Chapman sustained fractures of his nose and and a bone above his left eye when hit by the drive off the bat of Kansas City’s Salvador Perez. Reds manager Bryan Price said Friday he wasn’t sure exactly when Chapman will throw but said it likely will be during the team’s 10-game trip that ends April 27.

CINCINNATI — Right-hander Johnny Cueto pitched his third career shutout, and first baseman Joey Votto hit a two-run home run, lifting the Cincinnati Reds to a 4-0 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Wednesday afternoon in the finale of a three-game series between National League Central rivals.

The only hit allowed by Cueto through three innings was catcher Tony Sanchez’s dribbler that went for an infield single to extend his hitting streak to six.
