Pirates-Cubs rained out


CHICAGO – The Pirates and Chicago Cubs were rained out Thursday night in the final of their four-game series. None of the stats will count and the game will not be rescheduled.

Play was halted after three innings with the Pirates leading, 3-0. In the first inning, Garrett Jones lined an RBI single and Lastings Milledge hit a two-run homer.

The rain cost left-hander Paul Maholm a possible victory in his final start of the season. Maholm finishes with an 8-9 record and a 4.44 ERA.
