The Iowa Cubs roughed up RedHawks All-Star right-hander Nick Tropeano to post an 8-5 win Friday night at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark, snapping Oklahoma City’s five-game winning streak.

The Cubs increased their lead over the RedHawks to three games in the PCL’s American Conference Northern Division with 23 games left in the regular season. Jorge Soler hit a home run and drove in three runs and catcher Rafael Lopez also drove in three runs for Iowa.

Averaging more than eight runs the first six games of a nine-game homestand, the RedHawks rapped out 13 hits. Four players had two hits each, including Ronny Torreyes, Carlos Perez and Andrew Aplin.

Jenks product Dallas Beeler (8-5) picked up the win for the Cubs, allowing three runs on nine hits in six innings. Tropeano surrendered seven runs on six hits and four walks.
