Andrew McCutchen hit a two-run home run and three RBIs to lead the Pirates to a 6-2 win over the Chicago Cubs Monday night.

Cubs’ manager Rick Renteria has decided to bench Mike Olt, who is on a 0-for-16 skid at the plate, and start Luis Valbuena at third instead of sending him to to the minors for extra at-bats.

Around the league: Indians’ Lonnie Chisenhall went 5-for-5 with three home runs and nine RBIs to become just the fourth player in MLB history to do so and first since 1975, and the Pirates placed Neil Walker on the DL and have called up Gregory Polanco.
