Chicago Cubs vs Pittsburgh Pirates By Carter Evans

The Cubs are taking on the Pirates and are trying to go for the sweep of the Pirates.  in the top of the fourth Jon Lester is rolling he strikeouts David Freese swinging. He gets Francisco Cervelli to ground out to third-basemen Javier Baez to end the fourth inning. In the top of the 7th inning Lester’s no-hitter still intact until Starling Marte stepped up to the dish and he would end the no-hitter with a single to right field. Marte would steal second base to get in scoring position with Jung Ho Kang up to bat. He would deliver the first run of the game with a rbi double to take a 1-0 lead. In the top of ninth Kang would step up again and he would hit a solo shot to give the Pirates a 2-0 lead. In the bottom of the ninth the Cubs are trying to claw back with Anthony Rizzo to the plate with men on 1st and 3rd and one out. Rizzo would hit a sacrifice fly to put the Cubs on the board to make 2-1. Apparently that is all they would get in the ninth and lose to the Pirates 2-1.
