Hey hey! The Cubs beat the swooning Pirates 6-0 Friday behind another quality start from Jake Arrieta. His line: 6 IP, 0 ER, 11 K, 2 H. 

Dexter "You Go, We Go" Fowler reached base in 3 of 5 plate appearances and scored twice, Matt Szczur went 2-for-5 with a 2-run HR, Albert Almora went 3-for-4 with 2 RBI, and recent call-up Willson Contreras made his MLB debut by catching the 9th and helping to preserve the shutout. This team is deep.

The first place Cubs host Pittsburgh again on Saturday in game two of a three-game weekend set.

Let's go!
