      Cubs RP Clayton Richard picks up fourth win of the year

      Cubs relief pitcher Clayton Richard (4-2) picked up the victory in a 9-6 win over the Pirates on Thursday despite surrendering four hits and two earned runs in 3 1/3 innings. It's been an up-and-down month for the veteran reliever, with a little bit of everything mixed in over six appearances. Two games where he retired the only batter he faced are sandwiched between two others where Richard was unable to record an out. Additionally, over his most recent two trips to the mound, including Thursday, Richard has thrown a combined 90 pitches. The 32-year-old opened with a smooth and scoreless fifth Thursday before giving up two hits in the sixth and three in the seventh, including two ground-rule doubles. Although his performance was somewhat shaky, Richard has not surrendered a home run in 11 consecutive appearances and has only yielded a total of three over 39 innings pitched on the season.
