WGIL Newsroom . State Sports 169

Chicago CubsNEW YORK (AP) — Kyle Hendricks and two relievers held New York to four or fewer hits for the fifth straight game, Anthony Rizzo and Javier Baez hit long homers, and the Chicago Cubs rallied for a 4-1 victory over the Mets on Monday.

Hendricks (5-1) gave up just three hits in seven innings, allowing only Lucas Duda’s home run in the fourth. The rookie right-hander won his fourth straight start – yielding four earned runs over 29 1-3 innings.

Neil Ramirez struck out two in a perfect eighth and Hector Rondon allowed a leadoff double but finished the four-hitter for his 18th save.
The Cubs came back once Carlos Torres, making a spot start for Bartolo Colon, was done after five innings.
