Beliveau took over in the sixth inning after the Cubs had scored four runs in the fifth to close to within one run, 6-5, against the Pirates. There were two runners on and one out, and Beliveau served up Pedro Alvarez's second home run of the game, which gave the Pirates a 9-5 lead. Chicago rallied with five runs in the sixth and won, 13-9.
"I was kind of down after the game," Beliveau said on Monday. "I didn't do my job. I got the two guys out, and I walked [Clint Barmes]. I was a little bummed. I come into a close game and I have to get [Alvarez] out."
Beliveau didn't know he got the "W" until the game was over.
"[Alfonso Soriano] told me," Beliveau said. "He said, 'Hey, was that your first win?' I said, 'Oh, yeah, I guess I got the win.' Then I was frozen in the shower in beer. It made [the outing] a little easier to take."
His teammates gave Beliveau a celebratory beer shower. Beliveau can thank Anthony Rizzo, who hit his first Major League grand slam in the sixth for the go-ahead runs.
"I owe Rizzo dinner or something," Beliveau said.
