The Pittsburg Pirates lost to the Chicago Cubs once again and this time it was by the score of 7-3. The Pirates record now stands at 3-6 after being swept by the Cubs in the three game series.
The Pirates did have a 3-1 lead after the first inning, but after that they couldn’t get anything going against the Cubs pitchers. Freddy Sanchez, Xavier Nady, and Jose Bautista all had one RBI each for the Pirates.
Starting pitcher Matt Morris did pitch seven innings but he allowed 11 hits and seven runs. Only four of the seven runs were earned however as the two Pirates errors really hurt. Evan Meek pitched final two innings of the game without allowing a run.
