Jason Hammel pitched two-hit ball into the seventh inning and the Chicago Cubs edged the Pittsburgh Pirates 3-2 on Thursday for their first win of the season.

The right-hander allowed a run, struck out five and walked one in 6 2-3 innings to help the Cubs avoid their worst start in 17 years. Pedro Strop worked the ninth for the save.

Emilio Bonifacio went 2 for 4 and scored twice to continue his torrid start: the Chicago center fielder hit 11 for 16 (.688) during the opening three-game series.
