Pirates Continue Domination of Cubs
CHICAGO (AP) -- Andrew McCutchen and Garrett Jones both homered and set career highs with five hits each, leading lead the Pittsburgh Pirates to a 10-6 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Friday.

The Pirates broke loose at the plate after four straight losses and back-to-back shutouts at Cincinnati. They scored three runs in the first inning, then rallied from a 6-4 deficit.

Jones also doubled and drove in five runs. He broke an eighth-inning tie with a three-run homer off Carlos Zambrano, connecting right after his long drive was barely foul.

McCutchen scored five times and stole two bases. He hit a solo home run in the ninth, sending Chicago to its eighth loss in 10 games. That skid includes a three-game sweep at Pittsburgh last week.
