Final Score: Mets 3, Cubs 2—Wheeler deals, Campbell homers

The Mets won the series opener at Citi Field.

Adam Hunger-USA TODAY Sports

The Mets beat the Cubs this evening, as Zack Wheeler struck out ten and allowed two runs in six-and-two-thirds innings. The Mets didn’t do much against Cubs starter Travis Wood early, but Eric Campbell launched a three-run home run against him in the fourth to turn a two-run deficit into a one-run lead.

The Mets did not score again, but Vic Black, Jeurys Familia, and Jenrry Mejia combined to keep the Cubs off the board through the rest of the game. It was an impressive night for Mets pitchers, and the lineup did just enough to make the game a victory.
