Tonights game started off like yesterdays ended. Anthony Rizzo and Ian Happ led off the top of the first inning with back to back home runs. The Mets however did not lay down and answered the Cubs by scoring in the bottom of the second inning with the help of a Kris Bryant error to make it 2-1 Cubs.
