Holy cow! The Cubs continued their hot road trip, downing the Mets 5-1 behind a quality start from Jose Quintana and a big night from Ben Zobrist (3-for-5, HR, 2 RBI).

Zobrist's night raised his season average to .291, while J-Hey's 2-for-5 night raised his BA to .262, 42 points higher than it was on May 25. Heyward hit .283 in May and has 8 hits in his last 13 at-bats.

The Cubs bullpen allowed one hit in three innings of relief. Along the way, Steve Cishek lowered his season ERA to 1.78, Pedro "Hats Left" Strop lowered his to 1.52, and Brandon Morrow lowered his to a filthy 0.98. That's Cub.

The series continues Friday in New York.

Go Cubs go!
