Ten run 1st inning helps Pirates rout Cubs 14-3
(CHICAGO) – While the Chicago Cubs packed up quickly for the All-Star break, Bob Marley's "Three Little Birds" played over the speakers in the home clubhouse at Wrigley Field. "Don't worry about a thing," Marley sang, "Cause every little thing gonna be alright." The Cubs are hoping Marley is right, but there was no sign of any turnaround on Sunday. Jon Lester surrendered 10 runs in the first inning of the shortest start of his 12-year career, and the Cubs stumbled to a 14-3 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates. Chicago (43-45) heads into the break with a losing record for the first time since it was 40-54 in 2014. The reigning World Series champions also trail NL Central-leading Milwaukee by 5 1/2 games after the Brewers held on for a 5-3 victory against the New York Yankees. Francisco Cervelli hit his third career grand slam and matched a career high with five RBI while Jordy Mercer drove in three runs as the Pirates closed out a 5-2 road trip with their fifth win in six games. Lester (5-6) was charged with four earned runs and six hits. He also struggled in his previous outing, allowing six runs in five innings in a loss to Tampa Bay on Tuesday.
