Hey hey! The Cubs downed the Mets 5-1 at Wrigley behind Jon Lester's 10th win and a nice balance of offense. Lester's line: QS, 7.2 IP, 4 H, 3 K, 1 ER.

Anthony Rizzo launched a 3-run HR, Matt Szczur went 3-for-4 with 2 runs scored, and Javy Baez went 2-for-4 with a run scored.

More good news: Dexter "You Go, We Go" Fowler and Jorge Soler start rehab stints at AAA Iowa this week and should be back in Cubbie pinstripes soon.

The first-place Cubs host New York for game two of the three-game series Tuesday.

Let's go!
