PITTSBURGH -- Joe Maddon was proud that his Chicago Cubs reached 100 wins for the first time in 81 years.Javier Baez hit a grand slam and drove in a career-high six runs while major league ERA leader Kyle Hendricks pitched six scoreless innings as the Cubs got win No. 100 by routing the Pittsburgh Pirates 12-2 on Monday night.The hundred is very significant, Maddon said. It might not mean anything, but Ive been on teams that have lost 100 games, so its kind of nice to be on the other end of the stick. What it means is that weve played consistently all year. It means we come to play every day.Baez helped the National League Central-champion Cubs reach triple digits in victories for the first time since 1935. He hit his second career grand slam in the fourth inning to extend Chicagos lead to 5-0 and his two-run single capped a six-run sixth that made it 11-0.Hendricks (16-8) dropped his ERA to 1.99 by scattering seven hits, striking out five and walking none. He has not allowed more than three runs in 22 consecutive starts.Hendricks teammates were excited to see his ERA fall below 2.00.I didnt watch it during the game, Hendricks said. After the game, youve got guys in here all over me, telling me about it.Kris Bryant hit a two-run home run, his 39th, in the sixth to draw within one of NL leader Nolan Arenado of Colorado. It was also his 100th RBI.The Pirates saw their hopes of a fourth consecutive postseason appearance dim even further with their third straight loss. They entered the day 4 1/2 games out of the second NL wild card with seven games to play.Rookie Chad Kuhl (5-4) was rocked for five runs and eight hits in three-plus innings as his string of nine consecutive starts of giving up three runs or less ended.I thought I threw the ball pretty well until the fourth inning and then they started working some deep counts and things got away from me, Kuhl said.Matt Joyce and pinch-hitter David Freese hit back-to-back home runs off Pedro Strop in the eighth inning to account for the Pirates scoring. Andrew McCutchen extended his hitting streak to 14 games.THE MADDON SHUFFLEMaddon is trying to strike a balance between giving his regulars rest and keeping them sharp for the postseason now that his team has clinched home-field advantage throughout the NL playoffs.Maddon played what he called his varsity infield with the groundball-inducing Hendricks starting -- 1B Anthony Rizzo, 2B Baez, 3B Bryant and SS Addison Russell. Meanwhile, RF Jason Heyward was the only starting outfielder in the lineup.The Cubs will also use all relievers Thursday night in the series finale with rookie RHP Rob Zastryzny starting in place of LHP Mike Montgomery.FUTURE MOVEThe Pirates acquired INF Chris Bostick from Washington in a trade for minor league C Taylor Gushue and cash considerations.
