Chicago Cubs (70-50) @ Pittsburgh Pirates (61-61)

Cole Hamels (2-0, 1.00) vs. Trevor Williams (10-8, 3.66)

Second matchup of four-game set. Game delayed by nearly two hours due to rain delay. Hamels starting for Cubs. His first start as a Cub came against Pirates earlier this month.

Cubs now with 6 double plays. Baez catches liner & doubles off runner at 1B. Cubs need just 1 more double play to tie single-game record.

In fitting fashion, Cubs turn a double play to end game. Seven double plays ties MLB record. Chavez gets 1st save as Cub. Schwarber's homer wins game. Second game in a row with Cubs solo shot serving as lone run.
