Lester, Happ combine to lead Cubs to 1-0 win over Pirates

PITTSBURGH (AP) Jon Lester wasn't overly excited about winning for the first time in just over a month.

However, Cubs manager Joe Maddon couldn't have been happier with his performance.

Lester pitched six innings and Ian Happ homered as the Chicago Cubs beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 1-0 on Thursday night.
