Well, it was a pretty standard loss, as far as they go: the Pirates knocked the ball around (primarily Andrew McCutchen, because who else?), and the Cubs didn’t quite do it as much.

Edwin Jackson had some good stuff going tonight, but he was also hit hard. The Cubs couldn’t do much with Charlie Morton, and that was that.
