Pirates a hit, 19 times over
Cubs feel Lee, but fall
Derrek Lee hit a two-run single in his return from the DL, while Juan Pierre drove in two -- including a leadoff homer -- and Michael Barrett added a two-run double, but the Cubs' rainy rally fell short. Angel Guzman lasted just three-plus innings, allowing eight runs.

Bucs batters rain on Cubs
Six Pirates had at least two of the club's 19 hits -- with Freddy Sanchez, Ronny Paulino and Chris Duffy notching three -- while Jason Bay homered and drove in three to lead the Bucs' rainy romp. Ian Snell cruised early, hit a snag in the sixth, but came away with his 12th win.
