Mets vs Cubs Highlights: Chris Bassitt hurt by long ball on rare off night as Mets fall to Cubs | Mets Highlights

Chris Bassitt had gone at least five innings in 14 consecutive starts but had a rare off night against the Cubs, allowing a pair of home runs and five runs in all, as the Cubs topped the Mets 5-2. Javier Assad, making only his fourth Major League start for the Cubs, baffled the Mets hitters, allowing just a single run and striking out six in his six innings of work.
