Holy cow! The Cubs downed the Mets 6-2 at Wrigley on Wednesday behind Kyle Hendricks' quality start (6.1 IP, 7 K, 0 ER) and Anthony Rizzo's two homers.
Rizz tallied 3 RBI, and Addy Russell knocked in 2 more, going 3-for-3. Baez went 2-for-4 with an RBI, and KB went 2-for-5 with a stolen base and 2 runs scored.
The win gave the first place Cubs the series win, two games to one, over a team that has given the Cubs fits (0-8, to be precise) dating back to last year's NLCS. That, coupled with another series win over the first place Rangers, makes for a nice start to the second half.
Off day tomorrow followed by a three-game weekend series in Milwaukee.
