Polanco homers twice as Pirates beat Cubs 6-1
(CHICAGO) – Gregory Polanco and the Pittsburgh Pirates wasted no time in bouncing back from a rout to make an early statement in the National League Central. Polanco homered twice to help back a third straight solid start by Trevor Williams, and Pittsburgh pulled away from the Chicago Cubs for a 6-1 win on Thursday. Francisco Cervelli lined a three-run shot in the seventh off Cubs reliever Justin Wilson as Pittsburgh scored four times in the inning to break open a tight game. Adam Frazier also went deep for Pittsburgh, which rebounded from a 13-5 loss on Wednesday night at Wrigley Field to improve to 9-3 on the season. Williams (3-0) was a little bit better than Chicago starter Kyle Hendricks (0-1) in what began as a pitchers' duel. The Pirates' right-hander allowed one run and four hits through six innings, while striking out five and walking one. Hendricks allowed tow runs and five hits and struck out seven through six innings. Kyle Schwarber homered, doubled and singled for three of the Cubs' seven hits. Chicago's Ian Happ had his first two-hit game this season. Javier Baez went 0 for 4 after hitting four home runs in the past two games.
