Cubs vs. Mets Game 1 results, final score, highlights: Chicago Cubs will rue the lost chances
New York Mets proved more than handful for Chicago Cubs last night as they completely overwhelmed the Cubs in the Game 1 of the 2015 National League Championship Series.
But in the next match they may not be devising strategy to counter New York Mets in order to make a comeback in the series. Instead they will have to devise a workable strategy on how to counter a one man army in the form of Matt Harvey
Devising a strategy to tame him will be the only way Cubs can make progress. Nicknamed â€˜The Dark Knightâ€™, he is without doubt one of the most dominant young pitchers in the major leagues.
There is no denying the fact that Chicago Cubs’ frustration ranged from striking out nine times against Matt Harvey to lining into four outs.
Nonetheless they must be ruing a large number of missed opportunities, that if utilized would have taken them through despite all the heroics of Matt Harvey. Their 4-2 loss to the Mets in Game 1 of the best-of-seven National League Championship Series at chilly Citi Field has shocked their fans.
Many fans were bewildered over the way they made multiple mistakes in the fifth inning. From Yoenis Cespedes’ strong throw from left field that nailed Starlin Castro at home plate easily to a missed chance at completing an inning-ending double play that became magnified when Curtis Granderson hit a tie-breaking single, the Cubs hope to erase their array of baffling shortcomings quickly.
Following the loss Miguel Montero said that the team needs to forget about last nightâ€™s disastrous outing. â€œWe need to have a short memory, go to sleep and come backâ€, he went on to add.
On the other hand Jon Lester said, “We had some momentum goingâ€¦Our guys did a good job batting, had some good at-bats, squaring some balls against Harvey. And we tie the game, get momentum on our side, and I go back out there and give it right back up. That’s the game right there.”
