Cubs put everything together for win

Where was that all year?

The Cubs did almost everything right Sunday in a 3-2 victory over the Pirates to salvage the final game of the series after dropping the first two.

Things went to plan: They got a six-inning quality start from Ryan Dempster. Three relievers combined for shutout ball. And the Cubs executed sacrifice bunts and sacrifice flies to come from two runs down. They also played errorless and mistake-free ball in the field.

For much of the year, the Cubs have not hit with power. And when the power has been out, they've generated little offense via other methods.

"We come out here today, and we won the game because we had a runner on second and not only got him over, got him in," said Dempster. "When you do the little things like that, you end up winning a lot of games."

The quality start for Dempster was the club's 17th of the year. After leading the league in that category last season, they've been dead last all of this year.

"We played good baseball," Quade said. "A lot of times when you get good pitching, it seems to follow."
