Pirates 3, Cubs 2

PITTSBURGH — Francisco Liriano took a no-hit bid into the seventh inning and pinch-hitter Justin Morneau singled in the go-ahead run in the eighth as the Pirates remained tied with the Cardinals for the NL Central lead. Morneau, acquired Aug. 31, drove in his first run for Pittsburgh. "It was perfect timing for the first RBI, that's for sure," Morneau said.
