Levine: Cubs Break Out Of Slump With Long Ball Attack

Levine: Cubs Break Out Of Slump With Long Ball Attack

"That's why it's not going to remind me of much", Collins said with a laugh.

For the rest of us, it will be mighty fun seeing if they can figure it out in time. "Q did great. Some good at-bats".

Not sure if Rizzo had a specific tweet, headline or talk show in mind - or what someone from his entourage might have heard - but the Cubs have spent each of the last 48 days atop the NL Central and the overall theme of the coverage has been saying this franchise could become a dynasty and waiting for this team to finally take control of a weak division.

The New York Mets and Chicago Cubs meet Wednesday in Major League Baseball action at Wrigley Field.

Despite the Cubs being selected to win the NL Central by nearly every pundit, they surprisingly have not pulled away in the division race.They enter Tuesday's game just two games up on the Cardinals and 2 1/2 games ahead of the Brewers.

"I think you enjoy the pennant race", Maddon said.

Both teams were off Monday after home losses Sunday. It's good for us to find out what we're all about now and in the future. But the deluge began with a perfectly-executed safety squeeze bunt from pitcher Jose Quintana.

Kris Bryant delivered the biggest damage, hammering a three-run shot in a four-run fourth inning. He allowed five hits and issued a career-high five walks with his ERA rising to 5.58.

"Right now, you need to trust your guys more than anything". Chicago is 66-17 when scoring four or more runs.

With two outs and runners on first and second, Bryant drove a 3-2 pitch from Gsellman to left-center for his 26th homer. "You just can't keep letting leadoff hitters on and beat a team like that". The left-hander allowed two runs and six hits, struck out seven and walked one. Gsellman will make his first career start against the Cubs. He was selected by NY in the eighth round of the 2012 draft.

Tampa Bay has split the first two games of the set held at the home of the Mets.

The Mets also announced they had acquired minor league right-hander Eric Hanhold from Milwaukee as the player to be named in the Neil Walker trade.

Gsellman as considered one of the young talents that would help the Mets continue that 2015 succes. He was being examined in NY after experiencing dizziness and blurred vision. Shortstop Addison Russell has been out since August 3 with plantar fasciitis in his right foot, and he isn't even running at full speed. Jake Arrieta will miss this weekend's showdown against the Cardinals at Wrigley Field as he recovers from a strained right hamstring and the Cubs don't really know when their Cy Young Award victor will be ready to rejoin the rotation. Mike Montgomery will once again fill Jake Arrieta's spot in the series finale Thursday as Arrieta is still recovering from a Grade 1 right hamstring strain he sustained against the Pirates on Labor Day.
