Pederson went 3-for-4 in Friday's 4-2 win over the Tigers.
All three knocks were singles, but it was still Pederson's fourth straight multi-hit performance. The hot streak has pushed the outfielder's slash line to .268/.354/.341 through 24 games, but he has only one homer, eight runs and nine RBI.
Pederson went 3-for-5 with an RBI double in Wednesday's 2-1 extra-inning loss to Cleveland.
Pederson hit an RBI double in the fifth inning, but that was the extent of the Cubs' run-scoring offense Wednesday. The 29-year-old Pederson has been on a tear lately, going 12-for-25 (.480) with five RBI and three runs scored in his last six games. The surge has lifted his season slash line to .244/.337/.321 with one home run, nine RBI and eight runs scored in 92 plate appearances.
Pederson went 3-for-4 with two RBI and a run scored in a 6-5 loss to the Pirates on Sunday.
Pederson didn't even start Sunday but ended up playing almost the whole game after Jake Marisnick injured his hamstring in the first inning while chasing down a fly ball. The 29-year-old Pederson was slashing just .077/.143/.077 against lefties this season but got to Tyler Anderson for an RBI single in the second inning and another base hit in the fourth. He has now had three hits in two of his last three games and could be a regular fixture in the lineup with the Cubs' outfield depth suffering badly.
Pederson is not in the lineup Sunday against the Pirates.
Pederson will head to the bench in the series finale with southpaw Tyler Anderson starting for Pittsburgh. Kris Bryant will work in right field while Matt Duffy starts at the hot corner for Chicago on Sunday.

Pederson is not in the lineup for the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Dodgers.
It's hardly a surprise that Pederson won't be asked to play two games in one day right after being activated off the injured list Monday. He'll sit against lefty Clayton Kershaw in the day's first game, with Matt Duffy moving out to left field, but he should be back in the lineup for the nightcap against righty Trevor Bauer.
Pederson (wrist) was activated off the 10-day injured list Monday, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Pederson struggled significantly in his 16 games as a Cub, striking out 32.8 percent of the time while hitting just .137/.262/.235, before being sidelined with wrist tendinitis. He'll look to get things going Monday against his former team, the Dodgers. He clearly still has his manager's trust, as he'll lead off in the series opener.
Pederson (wrist) is participating in live batting practice Sunday at the Cubs' alternate training site, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.
The 29-year-old was with the Cubs earlier in the road trip while rehabbing the injury, but he has returned to the alternate site to take part in live batting practice. Pederson appears to be in the final stages of his rehab program from left wrist tendinitis and could return from the injured list sometime this week.
Pederson (wrist) will travel with the Cubs for the start of a three-game road series with the Reds that begins Friday, Tony Andracki of Marquee Sports Network reports.
Though Pederson is eligible to return from the 10-day injured list Saturday, manager David Ross suggested that the outfielder is simply traveling with the team to continue his rehab process. With that in mind, the Cubs may not necessarily be looking to activate Pederson ahead of the final two games of the series with Cincinnati. Before getting shut down due to left wrist tendinitis, Pederson was slashing .137/.262/.235 with a 32.8 percent strikeout rate over 61 plate appearances.
Pederson (wrist) took batting practice at the Cubs' alternate training site Wednesday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Manager David Ross said that Pederson (wrist) could start light hitting Tuesday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.
Pederson has reportedly made good progress since being placed on the injured list effective April 21. Assuming all goes well when he starts to swing again, he will then head to the team's alternate site to get back to game speed.
Pederson (wrist) is not currently scheduled for an MRI and will be reevaluated after a few days of rest, Tony Andracki of Marquee Sports Network reports.
Pederson was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday, retroactive to April 21. It's unclear whether he will be able to return after the minimum time, though we should have a clearer idea of his status within a few days. Jake Marisnick and Nico Hoerner could both see increased playing time in Pederson's absence.
Pederson was placed on the 10-day injured list due to left wrist tendinitis, retroactive to April 21, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Pederson had already been out of the lineup for the last two games due to this issue. It's not yet clear when he'll be able to return to action, but Jake Marisnick could see increased playing time in Pederson's absence. Nico Hoerner was recalled from the Cubs' alternate training site in a corresponding move.
Pederson is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Mets.
With the Mets bringing a lefty (Joey Lucchesi) to the hill for the second straight day, the left-handed Pederson will once again head to the bench. Jake Marisnick will replace Pederson in the Chicago outfield.
Pederson isn't starting Wednesday's game against the Mets.
Pederson has started against two of the three left-handed pitchers that the Cubs have played to begin the year, but he'll sit against southpaw David Peterson on Wednesday. Ian Happ will shift to left field while Jake Marisnick starts in center field.
Pederson went 2-for-3 with a walk, a triple and a run scored in Sunday's 13-4 loss to Atlanta.
The Cubs didn't have much to celebrate in this one but can at least be happy about Pederson's first multi-hit game of the season. The outfielder is still batting just .149, which underscores how much he's struggled to begin his first year with Chicago. Perhaps the mini-breakout Sunday will help Pederson get going.
Pederson went 0-for-2 with two walks and a run scored in Monday's loss to the Brewers.
Pederson is still batting just .129 this season but he has now reached base in six straight games. The outfielder likely won't supply a great batting average anyways, but it'd be nice if he started producing more counting stats, as he's tallied just one home run, two runs scored and four RBI in 10 games for his new team. The whole Chicago lineup has been struggling, which has limited Pederson's chances to do much damage.
Pederson went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 4-2 extra-inning loss to the Brewers.
Pederson tied the game at 1-1 with his eighth-inning homer. That blast was the outfielder's first hit in six games this year. He's produced three RBI, a run scored and eight strikeouts across 20 plate appearances. Should the lefty-hitting Pederson continue to struggle, Jake Marisnick could begin to earn more playing time.
Pederson will not start Monday against the Brewers.
Pederson started against the first lefty the Cubs faced, getting the nod against Tyler Anderson on Saturday. He'll sit against another left-handed Anderson (Brett) on Monday, with Ian Happ sliding to left field and Jake Marisnick starting in center. Just how often Pederson finds himself starting against same-sided pitching this season remains to be seen.
Pederson is 0-for-6 with a walk and five strikeouts through his first two games.
Pederson had a great spring training, registering a .378/.431/1.000 slash line in 18 games, but that hasn't translated to a fast start to the regular season. It is of course a very small sample size, and the 28-year-old outfielder has been a streaky performer in the past, so the hits could start coming soon.
