First, Ian Happ took Jacob deGrom deep for a towering solo shot in the top of the 2nd inning. The Cubs added two more runs in the top of the 4th. And just like that, deGrom was lifted after six innings already down three runs.
David Bote just greeted Mets’ reliever Seth Lugo with his first home run since returning from the IL recently. The Cubs now lead 4-0 and are in an exceptional position to take down the best pitcher on the planet. Stay tuned.
