Offensively, the Cubs haven’t been able to get much going Saturday night against the Mets. However, Jon Lester had been keeping them in the game.

Unfortunately, after the Mets took a one run lead in the fifth, they came back in the sixth to open the game up. With two outs and a hitter’s count, catcher Travis d’Arnaud hit the ball deep to dead center.

The home run gave the mets a 3-1 lead over the Cubs heading into the seventh inning. With the exception of the fifth inning when they scored, the Cubs haven’t threatened in the game.

New York took the lead in the first inning off of a Daniel Murphy home run.

Mets pitcher Matt Harvey has controlled the Cubs, spreading out only two hits, one walk and the one hit-by-pitch through the game.
