Pirates will aim to hang on vs. Cubs

The Chicago Cubs will be trying to hang on to first place in the National League Central, while the Pittsburgh Pirates will be trying to hang on, period, when the teams meet in a four-game series that opens Thursday at PNC Park in Pittsburgh.

The Cubs (69-50) tied a season-high by reaching 19 games over .500 Wednesday with an 8-4 win over Milwaukee and a split of a two-game series that left them three games ahead of the second-place Brewers in the division.

A Cubs offense that has been sluggish since the All-Star break pounded out 13 hits.
