Mets get 5-2 home win over Cubs
(NEW YORK) – David Peterson pitched one-hit ball over six scoreless innings for his first win in two months, and the New York Mets beat the Chicago Cubs at home for the first time in exactly four years with a 5-2 victory Monday night. Dominic Smith homered for the Mets, who stopped Chicago's five-game winning streak in the opener of a four-game series between NL division leaders. New York scored all its runs with two outs and earned its first win at Citi Field against the Cubs since a 9-4 victory on June 14, 2017. Peterson (2-5) was 0-4 with a 6.32 ERA in his last nine starts. But he allowed just a third-inning single to Eric Sogard, then picked him off second to end the inning. He also allowed a leadoff walk in the sixth to Sergio Alcantara. Jake Arrieta (5-7), allowed four runs on four hits and four walks in five innings of work. He struck out three. Anthony Rizzo and Patrick Wisdom hit back to back homers off reliever Trevor May in the seventh. The homer was Wisdom's ninth in 20 games with the Cubs, the second-most by a Chicago player in his first 20 games behind Hank Sauer (10 homers in 20 games in 1954).
