Correction: Cubs-Pirates story

PITTSBURGH (AP) In a story Aug. 18 about the game between the Chicago Cubs and Pittsburgh Pirates, The Associated Press reported erroneously that the Cubs matched San Francisco in 1969 and the Philadelphia Athletics in 1942 by turning seven double plays in a nine-inning game. The Cubs matched Houston's defense in 1969 and the New York Yankees in 1942.

A corrected version of the story is below:
