Pirates Beat Slumping Cubs 7-0

PITTSBURGH (AP)- Chad Kuhl pitched seven sharp innings and Colin Moran and Bryan Reynolds hit home runs in the Pittsburgh Pirates’ 7-0 victory over the slumping Chicago Cubs on Thursday.

Kuhl finished his comeback season on a strong note, allowing two hits, struck out five hits and three walks.

He sat out last season while rehabbing after Tommy John surgery.

The Cubs, who clinched a postseason berth Tuesday, are stumbling toward the playoffs with five losses in six games.

They have scored two or fewer runs in each of the five defeats.
