Mets 1, Cubs 7: Responding to the Cheating Charges with Homers



On the day that speculation is raised about the Cubs possibly throwing the 1918 World Series, a year before the South-Siders did so, the Cubs (13-6) responded by hammering the Mets (10-8). Take that, history!

The Big Moose (3-1) was excellent in seven innings, while John Maine (1-2) wasn’t so much.

I imagine the Cubs are hoping for more decades-old scandals to erupt to continue propelling them on their charge into first. Who knows what skeletons Ron Santo has hidden.

The Mets try to stop the Cubs 4-game winning streak when they send Nelson Figueroa out against Ted Lilly at 2:20pm EDT.
