  • New York Mets celebrate their NLCS victory over

With Chicago's first-place lead in the National League Central dwindling, the Cubs couldn't afford to wait much longer.

Bryant hit a three-run homer, Jose Quintana pitched seven effective innings and the Cubs beat the New York Mets 8-3 on Tuesday night for a sorely needed victory.

Red Sox 11, A's 1 • Mookie Betts hit two home runs and a two-run triple, and host Boston rolled past Oakland. The New York Mets have lost 10 of their last 12 games when allowing more than three runs. "If we figure out how to do it, we've got something going on for next year, too". Then they allowed the game's first run in the top of the fourth. In 10 previous games this month, the reigning NL MVP had six hits in 34 at-bats with no homers and no RBIs.

During that span, the Cubs' offense was sputtering.

Injuries and slumps have caused the Cubs to stumble this season after they breezed to the division title last season.

"I didn't even know there was any negativity around", Bryant said. Nobody is talking about it here. It is true and I think our guys have done a great job - not a good job - during the course of this season. At Pittsburgh on Thursday, the left-hander looked to be almost back in form, tossing six innings and allowing one run and five hits. The left-hander helped his cause by driving in Chicago's first run with a squeeze bunt.

"We were looking for that one big hit", Maddon said after the Tuesday victory. "This win was really important for us".

Any combination of four Mets losses/Rockies wins over the remainder of the season will officially ensure the Mets will not participate in the postseason. Wildness elevated the right-hander's pitch count to 93.

"It's a tremendous opportunity to get to hang out with some baseball players I'm huge fans of", Spieth said. Asdrubal Cabrera touched Quintana up for three hits.

The Mets had given the 23-year old a brief 1-0 lead in the fourth. During the bottom fourth, Quintana brought Kyle Schwarber in with a flawless sacrifice bunt and Kris Bryant delivered the big blow to put the Cubs up 4-1. Schwarber scored again in the fifth on a solo homer to right.

One out later, Bryant belted a Gsellman pitch for a high drive to right-center, capping the rally.
