PNC Park will play host to Chicago Cubs and Pittsburgh Pirates on Friday as they continue their series from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The Cubs are facing their own issues and they were unable to defeat Pittsburgh on Thursday. The Pirates are a long way out, but are trying their best to focus on winning. Last night, Pittsburgh smashed seven runs with the help of Bryce Harper and they managed to restrict Chicago to five from the plate. Chicago lost the game despite their home runs from Kyle Schwarber and Anthony Rizzo. At present, the Cubs are holding the top spot with the Cardinals.

Pittsburgh Pirates have struggled to meet the odds in the past games and they are at the bottom of the NL Central Division. The Pirates struggled to cope with Los Angeles Angels on Wednesday and their batting squad was unable to get to seven runs scored by the Angeles. The Pirates were restricted to just four runs from the plate and are now a long way behind the .500 mark. Pittsburgh will need to win 20 games to get back to the .500.
