DAYTONA 3, ST. LUCIE 1: A ninth-inning rally by St. Lucie fell short when Phillip Evans struck out after Cubs reliever Michael Jensen walked Cam Maron to load the bases. Nathan Dorris needed only 78 pitches to shut down the Mets through 6 2/3 innings. He allowed a leadoff triple to Dilson Herrera in the first and T.J. Rivera’s sacrifice fly two batters later.

Maikis De La Cruz threw out Zeke DeVoss at the plate on Krist’s hit to keep it 1-0. The Cubs broke the 1-all tie for good in the third. Dan Vogelbach led off with a double. With Vogelbach on third base and two outs, Jeimer Candelario hit a ball up the middle that was backhanded by T.J. Rivera.

The Cubs picked up their final run in the sixth against Seth Lugo. Lugo plunked Gioskar Amaya to start the inning and threw a wild pitch to advance him to second.

The throwing error allowed Amaya to score. Gonzalez Germen pitched a scoreless ninth inning in a rehab appearance. He walked one and struck out two. Herrera and Rivera had four of the Mets' seven hits. Box
