Baez homers twice as Cubs pound Pirates

Baez homers twice as Cubs pound Pirates

All three of them.

Williams helped the Pirates take two of three from division rival Chicago in the teams' first series this season. He led off with a strikeout, but he reached first base on a dropped third strike as Pirates pitcher Tyler Glasnow uncorked a wild pitch.

"If I gotta apologize, I have to apologize to my teammates and my manager", Baez said.

When Hendricks threw the first pitch at 1:22 p.m., it was a sunny 74 degrees and the wind was blowing out to right at Wrigley. The Cubs racked up 16 hits, which included a pair of home runs by Javier Baez.

Felipe Vazquez got four outs for his first save in a new jersey after he legally changed his surname to match that of his sister, Prescilla.

The 25-year-old Williams, who entered 2018 at 8-10 for his career - and was 7-9 last season - is emerging as a key part of the Pirates' rotation. "We've been talking a lot, and we got to a point, it was time, so we just went ahead and (did) it". By the fourth inning, the temperature dropped to 57 and the wind was blowing in.

Baez said he chatted with Pirates catcher Francisco Cervelli about the incident during the course of Thursday's game, but said the veteran backstop went about it "in a great way" and the two players wound up joking with each other about Baez's at-bats.

Williams allowed one run and four hits through six innings, striking out five and walking one.

"Trevor was good, very efficient from a perspective of finding outs and working out of a couple of jams", manager Clint Hurdle said. "They worked the whole field".

Baez belted a three-run shot to right-center against Steven Brault in the second and connected against Dovydas Neverauskas in the eighth, sending a solo drive to back of the bleachers in left.

Kyle Schwarber homered, doubled and singled for three of the Cubs' seven hits. After Wilson walked Josh Bell and Corey Dickerson, Cervelli smacked his second homer this season. With the win, the Cubs moved back over.500 at 6-5.

The curveball "was good", Nova said. We've got to get the ball in play more consistently, and we will.

"We won [Wednesday], and it got to him". But Baez struck out swinging to end the inning. "I don't think [anyone] plays this game harder than me". Senior guard Ben Richardson and Sister Jean, the nun and team chaplain who rocketed to fame during the team's NCAA Tournament run, each threw out a ceremonial first pitch.

"I'm just going to keep doing what I'm doing", Baez said to WGN-TV after the game.
