Wisdom hits 25th homer, Cubs pull away from Pirates 8-3

PITTSBURGH (AP) Patrick Wisdom hit a three-run homer, Adrian Sampson tossed six efficient innings and the Chicago Cubs beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 8-3 on Sunday.

Wisdom took the first pitch he saw from reliever Manny Banuelos and sent it into the Pirates bullpen well behind the center-field wall with two outs in the fifth. Wisdom became the fourth Cubs third baseman to reach the 25 home run-plateau in multiple seasons, joining Hall of Famer Ron Santo, Aramis Ramirez and Kris Bryant.

Esteban Quiroz, Ian Happ and Alfonso Rivas had two hits each for the Cubs, who took three of four from the Pirates to finish 5-2 on a seven-game trip through Miami and Pittsburgh.
