Josh Bell went 0-for-3 with one strikeout and one walk as the Pirates fell to the Cubs 7-1 on Thursday.
The tale of two halves continued for Bell on Thursday, who is hitting just .210 with four home runs since the All-Star Break. It is a far cry from his monstrous first-half of the season, which saw him hit .302 with 27 home runs. He will look to get back on track in the Pirates' upcoming series against the Reds at home.
