Seeking fifth straight win, Cubs look to take series vs. Pirates

The Chicago Cubs and Pittsburgh Pirates each had something positive to take out of their series opener Friday.

Chicago got the bigger reward, its fourth straight win, 3-2.

Pittsburgh has lost seven of its past eight games, but can hope there is some carryover to Saturday's meeting at Wrigley Field from the latter part of Friday's game. The Pirates trailed by three entering the ninth and rallied to get to within one.
