(AP) - Jason Marquis shut down Pittsburgh's batters, and the Chicago Cubs turned two well-placed bunts into two runs in the seventh inning and swept yet another three-game series from the Pirates with a 2-0 victory Wednesday.

After scoring 26 runs ...12 on Monday, 14 on Tuesday ... in the first two games, the Cubs turned to pitching and defense for their third three-game sweep this season of the NL Central rival Pirates. The Cubs won the season series 14-4, the most victories they've have against Pittsburgh since going 15-7 in 1954.
