Cubs Shut Out Mets
Steven Matz never let New York (N) get something going. The Chicago (N) left-hander commanded his fastball in pitching the Cubs to a 2-0 win. Getting the save was Francisco Liriano, his 1st. The Cubs have now won 4 straight.

The Cubs beat the Mets in part due to timely hitting. Case in point: the two-out single Roberto Baldoquin produced in the top of the fifth. Batting against New York (N) pitcher Sam Lucas, Baldoquin gave his team a 1-0 lead when he hit a run-scoring single.

"We put together a nice win," Matz said.
