PITTSBURGH (AP) - Andrew McCutchen hit his eighth homer and drove in three runs to lead the Pittsburgh Pirates to a 6-2 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Monday night.
McCutchen drove a two-run shot to right field in the third inning then added an RBI-double in the fifth off Edwin Jackson (4-6).
Charlie Morton (3-7) allowed one run over seven innings to win for the third time in his last four starts after beginning the season 0-6. Ike Davis hit his fifth homer of the season while Starling Marte broke out of a lengthy slump with three hits.
Starlin Castro went 3 for 4 with his eighth home run and two RBIs for the Cubs. Jackson surrendered four runs in six innings and is 1-4 since April 30. Chicago fell to 10-22 on the road, the worst mark in all of baseball.
