Lackey deals, Rizzo leads offense as Cubs beat Pirates 7-1

21 August 2009 Cubs Mike Quade and Lester Strode during regular season MLB game between the Chicago Cubs and the Los Angeles Dodgers at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles CA

In the interim, he had been 0-4 with a 6.75 ERA in five starts.

"He was just locating", Pittsburgh shortstop Jordy Mercer said. "Slow heartbeat - no heartbeat at all, actually".

"Awesome weekend. Just special, family being here, friends being here", said Happ, adding that he procured the home run ball hit in the park he formerly knew only as a spectator growing up. Rivero worked a flawless ninth to give the Pirates a boost following their meltdown the night before. In May, he batted.310 (18-for-58) with three homers in 18 games and in 12 games this month, Polanco is 9-for-53 (.170) "Some real good at bats from Gregory", Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said. Moving Rizzo to leadoff might be just what the team needs to get their season back on track.

Josh Bell hit his 12th homer and a two-run triple to help the Pirates rally from 3-0 deficit. Pittsburgh are 9-4 in Taillon's last 13 home starts and Pittsburgh are 15-7 in Taillon's last 22 starts while Pittsburgh are 15-7 in Taillon's last 22 starts on grass. "I lost some velocity in that inning, but I still could have gotten through it if I had located my pitches better". He doesn't throw as hard as he used to, but it doesn't matter if you locate.

Wainwright (7-5) gave up nine runs and seven hits, including three home runs, over 1 2/3 innings - the shortest of his 268 career starts.

Pirates first. Adam Frazier reaches on error.

Cubs starting pitcher Jake Arrieta has won the N.L. Cy Young Award, pitched two no-hitters and led all pitchers in single-season wins. "You can't get frustrated".

I went right back there again, and he wasn't reacting. "I didn't feel he could throw the punch that would end the fight". He is a great fighter. "I see him outboxing Anthony Joshua , there are some things about Joshua that I see".

"It still got in on me a little bit, but I was able to find a little bit of barrel and put it out", Arrieta said.

Anthony Rizzo went 3-for-5 with a homer and three runs scored on Sunday, leading the Cubs to a 7-1 victory over the Pirates.

The record for most consecutive games with a leadoff home run is three by Brady Anderson in 1996 for the Baltimore Orioles. It looked like they found something Friday night, when they erupted for six runs in the ninth to rally for a win.

Nicasio was unavailable on Saturday, and when Daniel Hudson gave up a double to rookie Ian Happ with one out in the eighth, Rivero came in and did it again.

"It's wonderful that guy that we have here", Nova said. He could have gone an inning or two deeper, but was lifted for a pinch hitter in the fifth. It was the first time that Maddon has been ejected this season.

The game will have what could be a marquee pitching matchup, even if the scheduled starters' numbers aren't necessarily reflective of how well they have pitched this season.

Pirates: Jameson Taillon (3-1, 2.90) will try to win his second straight start since returning from a cancer scare. Lackey has dropped four of his last five outings capped off by a 6-1 defeat at the New York Mets with four runs given up on six hits including three long balls in five frames.
