Cubs walk-off with a series win

Cubs 7-7 line

Full Box Score

Carlos Villanueva made his return to the rotation this afternoon and was good but was on a pitch limit, so the Cubs needed a real big effort from their pitchers, and they got it.  Villanueva and Hector Rondon each gave up a run today, but other than that the Cubs pitchers were spotless, all seven of them.  Oh, except for Kevin Gregg, leading 3-2 in the ninth the Pirates were down to their last strike when Starling Marte launched a game tying solo shot, gut punch.  Matt Guerrier came on in relief and gave the Cubs a chance to win and the Cubs did just that.  After loading the bases with nobody out Dioner Navarro hit a game winning sacrifice fly to right field, and just like that the Cubs had a series win, their fourth in their last five.  Sure this season is lost, but it is nice to see some positive results on the North Side, finally.
