Chicago Cubs vs. Pittsburgh Pirates preview, Sunday 9/15, 1:20 CT

Photo by Nuccio DiNuzzo/ The Cubs go for the series sweep. With the Brewers win over the Cardinals Saturday night, the Cubs trail St. Louis by three games and lead Milwaukee by one.

That broke a Cubs single-season mark that stood for 15 years.— Jordan Bastian (@MLBastian) September 14, 2019 Kyle Hendricks has the best...
