5/14 A little history

Andrew McCutchen and Garrett Jones had five hits each for the Pirates in Friday’s 10-6 win over the Cubs. The last time Cubs pitchers gave up five hits to two players in the same game was Oct 1, 1960, against the Dodgers. Maury Wills and Bob Lillis each had five hits in that game but the Cubs won, 10-8, in 14 innings. That game also was special for Billy Williams, who hit his first ML home run, connecting off Stan Williams. Thanks to Ed Hartig for the info.

Sadly, it appears that this kind of history is the only history that the Cubs will be making this year.
