Pirates lose 6-2 to Cubs, get swept in 3-game series

PITTSBURGH (AP) Pirates manager Clint Hurdle was succinct with his assessment after getting swept by the Chicago Cubs.

"We just got out-executed for three days in a row," Hurdle said.

Ben Zobrist hit a three-run home run, Anthony Rizzo also connected and Jon Lester worked out of a pair of jams to lead the NL Central-leading Cubs over the second-place Pirates 6-2 Wednesday for a three-game sweep.
