Simulated Recap: Eight Isn’t Great

The Cubs jumped all over Steven Matz scoring three runs in the first with a Kris Bryant RBI double, Willson Contreras RBI ground out, and Kyle Schwarber RBI single.

Matz wouldn’t survive the fourth, and the Mets offense couldn’t muster anything against Jose Quintana and the Cubs bullpen.

In the end, the Mets only had five hits which was fewer than the Cubs eight runs in the Mets 8-0 loss.
