Bryant, Quintana help Cubs beat Mets

13 Septembre 2017

For the rest of us, it will be mighty fun seeing if they can figure it out in time. (Ben Zobrist) had really good at-bats. The first six games will be on the road before the team opens the home slate against Detroit on Thursday, April 5th.

Behind a trio of homers, the Cubs earned a much-needed 8-3 win against the Mets at Wrigley Field, snapping a three-game losing streak and keeping their NL Central lead at two games over the Cardinals and 2.5 games over the Brewers.

"I tell everyone, take the positives out of everything to this point, where we are, coming after the greatest championship in sports history", Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo said, a few hours before the Mets-Cubs series opener, referring naturally to the Cubs' 2016 World Series title, the franchise's first since 1908. "There is not a better feeling playing good baseball games now".

After the Cubs started by going 0-for-7 with runners in scoring position Tuesday, Kris Bryant clubbed a three-run homer to give them a 4-1 lead in the bottom of the fourth.

"Maybe when you get home and you analyze everything, you might check the scoreboard", Schwarber said. "I had the right mindset today, I was just falling behind and I walked too many guys".

Leader of the Labour Party, millionaire and former Foreign Minister Jonas Gahr Støre, calls the result "a huge disappointment". Solberg's ruling coalition with the Progress Party is slated to win 89 of 169 seats, with 95% of votes counted.

"Obviously, the mistake to Bryant killed him", Mets manager Terry Collins said about Gsellman. The team's 5.52 ERA on the month is fifth worst in the league, only surpassed by (again) the Dodgers, Giants, Braves and Mets, the latter of which they are preparing to do battle with in what could be a slugfest of epic proportions - if, you know, their offense was doing anything that could be considered inspirational in the least. The left-hander allowed two runs and six hits, struck out seven and walked one. He bare-handed a ball deflected off Robert Gsellman's glove and tagged Willson Contreras as he jogged to second and fired the throw to first to get Ian Happ.

"It was a really good night for us", he said.

Schwarber, as his custom, downplayed the fact he hit a homer off a lefty even though he was batting only.162 against them entering Tuesday's game. The 23-year-old Hanhold, a sixth-round pick in the 2015 draft out of the University of Florida, went 8-3 with two saves and a 3.94 ERA in 30 games for Class A Carolina this year. He was selected by NY in the eighth round of the 2012 draft.

Watch a team every day and the flaws come into sharper focus and obscure the strengths. He was being examined in NY after experiencing dizziness and blurred vision.

Contreras had been out since August 10 due to a right hamstring strain. Jake Arrieta will miss this weekend's showdown against the Cardinals at Wrigley Field as he recovers from a strained right hamstring and the Cubs don't really know when their Cy Young Award victor will be ready to rejoin the rotation. Arrieta hasn't pitched since he left in the third inning of a 12-0 loss at Pittsburgh on September 4.
