Cubs top Mets on Tuesday night at Citi Field

The Cubs arrived to Citi Field on Tuesday hoping to wash away the taste that lingered from the weekend. This was not a must-win situation — especially not for a group that once had its back against the wall in the World Series — but a victory would be an immediate boost to the team’s collective psyche.

Javier Báez broke out of a two-week slump with a three-hit showing and Yu Darvish quieted the Mets over eight impressive innings, leading the Cubs to a 5-2 win. Consider it step one as Chicago tries to move on from being swept at home by the Nationals and chip away at the Cardinals’ lead atop the National League Central.
