Feldman pitches Cubs to 8-2 victory over Mets

Posted: Updated:

CHICAGO (AP) - Scott Feldman pitched shutout ball into the seventh inning and drove in two runs with a big two-out double, helping the Chicago Cubs beat the New York Mets 8-2 on Saturday.

The Cubs have won 5 of 7 and can win three straight series for the first time with a victory on Sunday. Anthony Rizzo had two hits and his first home run since signing a 7-year contract on Monday.

Chicago was going for its first shutout since a victory over Colorado on Aug. 26, but Rick Ankiel broke it up with a two-run homer off Hector Rondon with one out in the ninth.

Feldman (4-3) won his fourth straight decision, pitching 6 2-3 innings while allowing seven hits and striking out six.
