Harrison powers Pirates past Cubs 5-3

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (Associated Press) -

Josh Harrison homered and drove in three runs, leading Vance Worley and the Pittsburgh Pirates to a rain-delayed 5-3 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Saturday night.

Jordy Mercer went deep for the second straight day and Andrew McCutchen had a tiebreaking RBI single for Pittsburgh, which had lost four of five. Worley (1-0) pitched into the seventh inning for his first win with the Pirates.

Harrison's fifth homer with two out in the seventh made it 5-2 and came after Gregory Polanco was awarded first after a replay review determined he had beat out his sharp grounder to shortstop.

Anthony Rizzo hit a two-run homer for Chicago, which had won four of five.

The start of the game was delayed for 2 hours, 1 minute while a storm passed through the area.

Travis Wood (7-6) allowed four hits, walked three and struck out four in 4 2-3 innings.
