PITTSBURGH — Willson Contreras drove in all of the Cubs’ run as Chicago beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 3-2 to end a seven-game losing streak.
Contreras’ two-run double high off the right-field wall in the seventh inning rallied the Cubs from a 2-1 deficit. He also accounted for the game’s first run with a long sacrifice fly to center field in the fifth.
Bryan Reynolds became the first Pirates player to hit two triples in a game since Josh Harrison in 2014.
Pittsburgh fell to 59-99, putting the Pirates on the brink of the ninth 100-loss season in franchise history.
