Brubaker pitches, hits Pirates to 7-1 win over slumping Cubs

PITTSBURGH (AP) JT Brubaker pitched into the sixth inning and had the first three RBIs of his career to lead the Pittsburgh Pirates over the Chicago Cubs 7-1 on Sunday.

Brubaker (1-0) allowed one run and four hits in 5 1/3 innings with four strikeouts and one walk. His two-run single down the right-field line capped a three-run second inning and gave the Pirates a 3-1 lead.

"I just wanted to put the ball in play," said Brubaker, who is 2 for 4 this season after also getting a hit in his first career at-bat. "He threw me a fastball and I put a swing on it. If you asked me where it was in the zone, though, I couldn't even tell you. I'm not that kind of hitter."
