McCutchen helps Pirates beat Cubs, snap skid
CHICAGO – Andrew McCutchen homered and reached base four times, and the Pittsburgh Pirates held off a late rally to snap a seven-game losing streak with a 7-6 win over the Cubs on Saturday.
Wandy Rodriguez (11-13) held the Cubs to three runs – one earned – in helping the Pirates stop their free fall in the NL playoff race. Pittsburgh had lost 17 of 22, yet was just three games behind St. Louis for the second NL wild-card slot entering the day.
Rodriguez is 3-0 with a 1.40 ERA over his last four starts after struggling initially upon being acquired midseason from Houston.
