Cubs four-midable in finale
Freddy Sanchez, who won Saturday's game for the Pirates, got the Bucs on the scoreboard with a two-run double, but the offense was unable to muster any more than that. Dave Williams, starting in place of Josh Fogg, allowed four runs on five hits and struck out five in six innings.

The Cubs scored four in the fourth on Jeromy Burnitz's three-run homer and a solo blast by Neifi Perez -- who drove in two on the day -- to earn an abbreviated split against the Bucs. Kerry Wood won his first game of 2005, striking out eight in five innings.
