Rosario (1-0) retired the lone batter he faced and earned the win in Friday's game against the Pirates.

Fellow reliever Pedro Strop allowed a game-tying, three-run homer in the eighth inning before getting the hook with two outs. Rosario retired All-Star slugger Josh Bell on a groundout and picked up win No. 1 when the Cubs scored a run in the bottom of the frame. Rosario has mostly toiled in Triple-A this season and has just nine innings at the MLB level, though he did toss 46.2 innings and register a 3.66 ERA for the Cubs in 2018, so he could stick around in the second half of the year as a lefty specialist.
