Mets 7 Cubs 6 in 11 Innings

I attended this afternoon's game as it was part of my 20-game plan.  It turned out to be Francisco Lindor to the rescue.  He left last night's game with flu-like symptoms and was not in the starting lineup.  The Mets fell behind 4-0 in the fifth inning.  Starting pitcher Adrian Houser was ineffective as he allowed those four runs with four hits and four walks.  The Mets got two runs in the bottom of the fifth inning but still trailed.  Lindor came in as a pinch-hitter for Joey Wendle and drove in two runs to make it 5-4. Two batters later Brandon Nimmo drove in the tieing run.  The score remained tied as the game went into extra innings.

The Cubs took the lead in the 11th with a double by Nick Madrigal.  In the bottom of the inning, Lindor came through again with a double plating the tieing and winning runs.
