The Mets have won 2 consecutive ballgames versus the Chicago Cubs. Wheeler and Niese both had solid outings, but both had trouble getting out of the 7th inning. The offense was helped out by some timely walks, and some clutch base-hits from Mets reserves. Eric Campbell replaced David Wright after he has hit in the shoulder in the 6th inning. So far, this is believed to be precautionary. Jacob deGrom threw today, and feels good to go for next weeks game versus Los Angeles.
