CHICAGO (AP) - Zach Davies pitched into the sixth inning in his Chicago Cubs debut, leading his new team to a 4-3 victory over the short-handed Pittsburgh Pirates.

Ian Happ homered and Kris Bryant reached three times as Chicago earned its second straight win after losing on opening day.

Joc Pederson also drove in a run with a groundout.

Davies, who was acquired in the December trade that sent Yu Darvish to San Diego, permitted two runs and four hits in 5 2/3 innings.

Pittsburgh played without third baseman Ke’Bryan Hayes, who was placed on the 10-day injured list with a strained left wrist.
