Cubs hope offense wakes up vs. Pirates

The Chicago Cubs have put their offensive production on repeat the past three games -- one solo homer each night in the first three games of a series against the Pittsburgh Pirates at PNC Park.

The Cubs benefited from the fact that for two games the Pirates' offense was even less effective. Chicago won the first two games by identical 1-0 scores, with Ian Happ and Kyle Schwarber providing the homers.

Their luck ran out Saturday when Ben Zobrist hit a solo homer but Pittsburgh got to spot starter Tyler Chatwood in the second inning for three runs in a 3-1 win.
