Mets right-hander Zack Wheeler left Saturday night's start at Pittsburgh after six innings and 94 pitches with a blister.

ESPN Stats and Information  

The Pirates' John Jaso became the first player to come into a game in the ninth inning or later and have only two at-bats, the first of which tied the score and the second of which won the game, since Tampa Bay's Robinson Chirinos on Aug. 4, 2011. Chirinos had a tying single in the bottom of the 11th and a walkoff single in the 12th. (Source: Elias Sports Bureau)

Following masterful outings by Alex Wood and Brandon McCarthy, Clayton Kershaw will start Sunday's series finale vs. the Cubs' Jon Lester. The last time that the Dodgers threw three straight shutouts? Opening the 2016 season at Petco Park, when they outscored the Padres 25-0.

ESPN Stats and Information  

The back-to-back shutouts give the Cubs five with the season not yet two months old. Last year en route to the World Series title, the Cubs didn't suffer their fifth shutout until July 26 and were blanked six times all season.

According to the Elias Sports Bureau, the Dodgers are the first team since 1917 to shutout the defending World Series champion in back-to-back games while issuing 3 or fewer hits in each one. The Cubs had two hits on Friday and just 3 hits on Saturday in losing both games by a combined 9-0 score. All five hits over the two games were singles.

ESPN Stats and Information  

John Jaso entered the Pirates' game against the Mets as a pinch-hitter in the ninth inning, and he delivered a run-scoring single that made the score 4-4. It was the fifth game-tying hit in the ninth inning or later in his career, his first since June 2, 2016. In the 10th, with the bases loaded and two outs, Jaso singled in the winning run. It was his third walk-off hit, his first since 2014.

Ben Zobrist said he hurt his left wrist on a swing in Friday's game. He's day to day and will reevaluate on Sunday if he can play that day.

The Cubs lost 5-0 to the Dodgers on Saturday getting shutout for the 2nd straight game. This time Brandon McCarthy held them in check giving up just two hits over 6 innings. Meanwhile John Lackey was looking good for a couple innings but blew up in the fifth when he walked the pitcher and then gave up a HR to Chris Taylor. The Dodgers added two more runs on a Chase Utley single and never looked back. The Cubs have 5 singles in two days against Dodger pitching.

Lucas Duda's fifth-inning home run was calculated at 447 feet, the second-longest home run at PNC Park this season.

The longest by a Pirates player is John Jaso's 430-footer on May 18.
