Cubs edge Pirates 3-2 to pick up first win

PITTSBURGH (AP) - Jason Hammel pitched two-hit ball into the seventh inning and the Chicago Cubs edged the Pittsburgh Pirates 3-2 on Thursday for their first win of the season.

     The right-hander allowed a run, struck out five and walked one in 6 2-3 innings to help the Cubs avoid their worst start in 17 years. Pedro Strop worked the ninth for the save.

     Emilio Bonifacio went 2 for 4 and scored twice to continue his torrid start. The Chicago center fielder hit 11 for 16 during the opening three-game series. Mike Olt hit the first home run of his career for the Cubs.

     Tony Sanchez hit a two-run single in the seventh for the Pirates but Pittsburgh couldn't put together its first 3-0 start since 2007.
