The Cubs took the field on a hot, steamy summer day with the rare opportunity to win a series against one of their central division foes. Carlos Villanueva was making his first start since being inserted back into the rotation. Which meant the bullpen was going to be needed. Luckily for the Cubs, the Pirates chose a very humid day to wear their black third jerseys. Freeze frame....now freeze.
Yo ho, and blow the man down. Cubs 4 Bucs 3 in 11 inn.
