Hey hey! Cubs beat the Pirates, 7-1. Jake Arrieta continued his streak of dominance, picking up another quality start with this line: 7 IP, 5 K, 2 BB, 2 H, and 0 ER. 

Recent call-up Tim Federowicz caught Arrieta & Cahill and went 2-for-3 with a run scored. Six different Cubs picked up an RBI each, including Arrieta. Bryzzo went a combined 5-for-9 with 2 RBI and 2 R apiece.

The first place Cubs bring the best record in MLB to the finale of the three-game series with the Bucs tomorrow afternoon in Pittsburgh.

Let's go!
