This is interesting how Gimenez almost entered the game last night.

The Cubs are looking for seven or eight innings from veteran Jon Lester today.

Chicago Cubs (32-23) @ New York Mets (27-29)

Jon Lester (5-2, 2.71) vs. Steven Matz (2-3, 3.55)

Only 13 hours since the grueling 14-inning game between these 2 came to an end. Cubs looking for 4-game sweep. Mets have only tallied 17 hits in the 3 games vs. Cubs. Will have to fare better against Lester today.

E1 — Lester fans 3 batters but has some hiccups in between. A couple walks right off the bat & some bad pitches. But Lester gets out of it. Scoreless through 1.

M2 — Happ gets caught in pickle after drawing 1-out walk. Lazy tag applied by Mets' Rosario nearly lets Happ sneak in there safely at 2B. Called out, though. Schwarber then strikes out swinging to end inning.

E2 — Cubs just avoid Three Stooges moment on play made in foul territory. Happ (who's manning 1B for 1st time this season), Heyward and La Stella all nearly slam into one another while making play on pop fly down RF line. Heyward catches it while bumping La Stella. All's well. Inning over.

T3 — Russell leads off with double. Advances to 3B on grounder by La Stella. Then tries to score on safety squeeze via bunt from Lester. Matz makes incredible play on a shovel pass of sorts to the plate. Russell tagged out. Almora follows that up with bloop single to RF. Runners on 1st & 2nd with 2 outs.

M5 — Cubs unable to capitalize on leadoff walk. A couple of solid defensive plays by Mets lead to all 3 outs. Matz makes heads-up throw to 2B on grounder back to mound that results in tough double play. A-Gon stretches out at 1B to pull it off and end inning. Matz throwing 2-hitter so far.

Russell's been really shaky defensively lately. Several blunders in the past few weeks. Got to think that's not helping his case with possible trade looming, considering how reliable Machado is.

Russell appeared to hurt his hand/wrist in his previous AB in the 5th. Got pulled from the game. No report as to exactly why he was pulled yet.

T6 — Lester irked after HBP called on Joey Bats. Typical gamesmanship from the veteran, as he made no effort to dodge pitch in the hurt. Ump said it hit him in the foot. No replay instigated

T6 — Lester loses no-hitter. Baez not able to corral hard-hit ball hit between SS & 3B. If Russell were still in there, he might've made the play. Mets threatening with men on 1st & 2nd with 2 outs.

E6 — Lester hustles to cover 1st on grounder between 1B & 2B. Escapes bases-loaded jam. Game still scoreless.

T7 — Baez hits screamer up middle for leadoff single. Then gets good read on Contreras single to right-center. Advances to 3B. Runners on corners with 0 outs.

T7 — Brilliant double steal gets Cubs on board. Fools Mets. Contreras makes move to 2B to distract from Baez, who takes off for home. Slides in headfirst to steal home & put Cubs up 1-0.

T7 — Gutsy play by Contreras on sacrifice fly. Mets 2B makes awkward catch that allows Contreras to motor home. If Jay Bruce caught ball while charging toward home, Contreras likely doesn't go. Schwarber then steals 2B. 3 steals in 1 inning for Cubs.

T7 || Cubs 2, Mets 0
