Pitching, however, hasn't been the Cubs' biggest worry lately.

Jordan Spieth is no stranger to throwing out a first pitch at a baseball game.

And, Rizzo added, "We're going to get hot". In the seventh Happ crushed his 22nd home run to give Chicago a five run lead.

With the Cubs still leading the National League Central by two games ahead of the Cardinals, fans are anticipating another deep playoff run.

He finished 20 of 30 for 222 yards, but was guilty of holding onto the ball too long and put himself at risk with a few runs. The offseason saw the departure of long-time defensive stalwart Lawrence Timmons , the addition of first-round pick T.J.

Frank de Boer could face axe
There were three changes for the visitors to the side which lost at home to Swansea before the worldwide break. It's hard to see de Boer abandoning his formation of three at the back.

Lester is 4-1 with a 3.97 ERA in six career starts vs. the Mets, including a 14-3 victory in NY on June 13 when he struck out 10 and allowed one run in seven innings. The reigning NL MVP last went deep and drove in a run on August 31 vs. the Atlanta Braves.

The Cubs can be a boom-or-bust offense and this lineup is far easier to navigate than last year's version. The Mets have allowed 19 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in eight of their last 12 games.

The left-hander helped his cause by driving in Chicago's first run with a squeeze bunt. But I told them: "Take the positives out of everything to this point - where we are coming from after the greatest championship in sports history - and in the position to win the division again". There's a matchup between the Cardinals and Cubs at Wrigley Field on the Thursday after the All-Star Game. He will field first base and hit eighth in the Mets' order.

In the bottom half of the inning, another lead-off batter, Kyle Schwarber this time, reached via a walk, and opened the floodgates to a four-run inning, capped off by a Kris Bryant three-run dong.

NY got a run back in the fifth on d'Arnaud's sac fly, but Schwarber lofted his homer to right center with two outs off Tommy Milone to make it 5-2.
