Cubs look to get well vs. struggling Mets”

The Mets are sitting in fourth place of a depleted National League East.

LAKE FOREST, Ill. - Jordan Spieth said he completed his "bucket" list of ceremonial first pitches when he threw from the mound preceding the Chicago Cubs game against the New York Mets at Wrigley Field on Tuesday night. The right-hander walked five and was charged with four runs and five hits. NY ends the 2018 regular season with a six-game home stand vs. the Braves and Marlins. "I think everyone needs to start rallying around us more now instead of maybe panicking a little bit". "It happened to be a home run". The Mets swept the Cubs in the NLCS and also won each game of a four-game set at Citi Field last season. Heading into Tuesday's action, the Cubs led the Cardinals by two games and the Brewers by 2 ½, and all three trailed the Rockies for the NL's second wild card (the Cubs by a game and a half), making this a potential old-school contest without a safety net.

Bryant hadn't homered or posted an RBI in his last 10 games and entered hitting.176 (6-for-34) in that span.

During that span, the Cubs' offense was sputtering.

New York Mets starting pitcher Robert Gsellman (65) blows a bubble after pitching against the Chicago Cubs during the fourth inning of a baseball game in Chicago, Tuesday, Sept. 12, 2017. I like the fact that it's hard right now, and I think that we should learn something about ourselves going forward. Nobody is talking about it here.

"It was a really good night for us", he said. "This win was really important for us". The St. Louis Cardinals, whose own dedication to inconsistency has helped to facilitate the Cubs' continued survival atop the division, are trending upward as their final trip to Wrigley Field nears this weekend. Milwaukee comes to town for three games on June 1-3 while the Sox travel to face the Reds July 2-4 in Cincinnati.

"It's frustrating when you get behind the batters", Gsellman said. Asdrubal Cabrera touched Quintana up for three hits.

The Mets cut into the Cubs lead with Nori Aoki scoring on Travis d'Arnaud's sacrifice fly to right in the fifth. The left-hander has been hit-or-miss for Chicago but has now put up three straight quality starts. Schwarber raced home, sliding under Dominic Smith's throw while Quintana reached first. The lefty's pitch was a tad high.

NY got a run back in the fifth on d'Arnaud's sac fly, but Schwarber lofted his homer to right center with two outs off Tommy Milone to make it 5-2.
