Chicago Sports Recap: 9/13/22

Chicago Cubs 4 – New York Mets 1   

Highlights:  Jacob deGrom and the first-place Mets were supposed to beat up on all these bad opponents this month. Instead, the bottom feeders have been nothing but trouble.  New York’s ace was outpitched by journeyman Adrian Sampson, and the frustrated Mets mustered little offense again Tuesday night in a 4-1 loss to the Chicago Cubs. Ian Happ homered deep into the second deck on a 99 mph fastball from deGrom (5-2), and No. 9 batter David Bote added his second home run of the season for the Cubs (60-82), who won the series opener 5-2 on Monday.

Colorado Rockies 2 – Chicago White Sox 4

Highlights:  Miguel Cairo is still getting used to running the Chicago White Sox while Tony La Russa is away. With Chicago trying to close out Colorado on Tuesday night, Cairo felt the pressure. “When you have one- or two-run leads, you don’t feel comfortable,” he said. But he felt pretty good when it was over. Cairo guided the White Sox to another victory, riding home runs by Eloy Jiménez and José Abreu to a 4-2 win against the Rockies.
