The referee stopped the fight, but two Pirates were still taking some swings.

Behind Jameson Taillon's six one-hit innings and John Jaso's cycle -- the first in the 16-year history of PNC Park -- the Pirates ended a four-game losing streak with an 8-4 win over the Cubs on Wednesday night.

Taillon completed his rookie year with one of his best performances, as Anthony Rizzo's first-inning home run did the only damage against him. The 24-year-old right-hander finished the season with a 3.38 ERA in 18 major-league starts.

"I know we're out of it mathematically, but I wanted to come out here, pitch against them and kinda show the Cubs that I'm here," Taillon said.
