Chicago Cubs (69-50) @ Pittsburgh Pirates (61-60)

Jon Lester (12-5, 3.89) vs. Ivan Nova (7-6, 4.42)

Opener of four-game series at PNC Park. Lester hoping to turn his recent struggles around. Baez leading off & Rizzo cleaning up for second straight game.

M1 — Bote provides Bucs with scare on towering fly ball to deep left-center. Ball caught at warning track, though. Heyward gets 1-out single, and that's it for Cubs in 1st inning.

M1 || Cubs 0, Pirates 0

E3 — Lester still in control. 2 Ks in fairly easy inning. 6 Ks through 3 innings for Big Jon.

T4 — Happ crushes a solo HR on effortless swing. 13th long ball for him. Makes absolutely perfect contact on pitch.

E5 — Lester gets clutch K to end Pittsburgh's scoring threat. Pirates leave men stranded on corners.

E6 — Another great caught-stealing play involving Baez & Contreras. Baez tags Marte while falling down for out.

F — Strop closes out game in 9th. Solo home run by Happ against his hometown team gives Cubs win in old-fashioned war of attrition.
