MLB: Pittsburgh 3, Chicago Cubs 2

PITTSBURGH, July 25 (UPI) -- Garrett Jones doubled in the go-ahead run in the sixth inning to back Kevin Correia's strong outing Wednesday and Pittsburgh bested the Chicago Cubs 3-2.

With the score tied 2-2, Alex Presley collected a one-out single off Ryan Dempster (5-5) and after Neil Walker struck out moved to third on Andrew McCutchen's hit.

That brought up Jones, who laced a 1-1 pitch into right field for an RBI, and Pittsburgh went on to salvage one victory in their three-game series.

Walker and Michael McKenry each socked a solo homers for the second-place Bucs, who came into the contest trailing National League Central-leading Cincinnati by 2 1/2 games.

Dempster, the subject of trade-deadline rumors, lost his second straight start, yielding three runs on five hits in a six-inning effort.

Anthony Rizzo bashed a two-run homer to supply the Cubs' offense.
