Game 144 Recap: Cubs 8, Mets 3

Game 144 Recap: Cubs 8, Mets 3

Unlike the Mets, the Cubs are still playing for something, finding themselves locked in a dogfight as they try to fend off the charging Cardinals and Brewers in what has become a hectic race for the NL Central.

Harvey is 1-0 with a 2.95 ERA in three career starts against the Cubs, including a no-decision June 14 - his last start before heading for the DL - when he allowed four runs in four innings. The right-hander walked five and was charged with four runs and five hits.

"I think it's good for baseball", Cubs manager Joe Maddon said. Quintana got another bunt down in the sixth, sending Javier Baez to third ahead of Ben Zobrist's RBI single.

"It's frustrating when you get behind the batters", Gsellman said. "Right now, it is fun to be us". In 10 previous games this month, the reigning NL MVP had six hits in 34 at-bats with no homers and no RBIs.

Quintana is on the mound Tuesday night opposing Robert Gsellman (6-6, 5.44 ERA).

"You got to just keep working your way through it".

With two outs and runners on first and second, Bryant drove a 3-2 pitch from Gsellman to left-center for his 26th homer.

Schwarber and Ian Happ also homered before Bryant tacked on a deep sacrifice fly in the eighth.

Quintana improved to 2-0 with a 2.37 ERA in his last three starts.

In the case of the Cubs, Tuesday night's win provided some optimism after a weekend that saw them score only three runs in getting swept in a three-game series by the Brewers that cut their five-game lead. At Pittsburgh on Thursday, the left-hander looked to be almost back in form, tossing six innings and allowing one run and five hits.

"It was a really good night for us", he said. He struck out as a pinch-hitter in Sunday's 3-1 loss to Milwaukee.

Lester (10-7, 4.35 ERA) will make his third start since spending two weeks on the disabled list with lat tightness and shoulder fatigue.

NY called up catcher Tomas Nido from Double-A Binghamton. Eight pitches and a trot around the diamond later, by the time he was getting fake interviewed by his teammates, they were nearly assured to win the game, at a win probability of 84.7%.

While the Mets don't have much to play for these days, assuming the role of spoiler, their starting pitcher, however, looks to continue strong play of late.

Contreras had been out since August 10 due to a right hamstring strain. He was selected by NY in the eighth round of the 2012 draft. 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.
