Chicago Cubs’ rookie Seiya Suzuki extended his hit streak to five games to begin the season, but the visitors were beaten by the Pittsburgh Pirates 6-2 on Wednesday for a two-game series split.

Suzuki, who has nine RBIs already, hit an RBI single to center in the fourth inning to help the Cubs close their deficit to 5-2 at PNC Park. But the Pirates were able to hold on to their early lead earned from a first-inning, three-run homer by Ben Gamel.
