PITTSBURGH (AP) — Mitch Keller pitched five efficient innings and the Pittsburgh Pirates used an early burst to chase Zach Davies in an 8-2 win over the Chicago Cubs.

Keller bounced back from a rough 2021 debut by allowing one run.

The 25-year-old struck out seven and walked just one as the Pirates ended a six-game losing streak.

Colin Moran, Bryan Reynolds and Jacob Stallings all drove in two runs during Pittsburgh’s seven-run outburst in the second against Davies.
