      The Cubs and Edwin Jackson lose to the Pirates

      Andrew McCutchen had three hits and two RBIs to lead the Pittsburgh Pirates past the Chicago Cubs 4-2 on a rainy Thursday for their fourth straight win.

      Leadoff hitter Starling Marte singled and scored in each of the first two innings as Pittsburgh built an early 4-0 lead.

      The Pirates moved a season-best 11 games over .500 with its 11th victory in 13 games.

      Edwin Jackson (1-7) gave up two runs in the first inning and two more in the second.

      He lasted only three innings and has a 6.11 ERA through 10 starts.

      Jackson is in his first season with the Cubs after signing a our-year, $52-million contract over the winter as a free agent.
