Cubs 2, Mets 1

NEW YORK — Starlin Castro hit a tiebreaking homer on the first pitch of the ninth inning to lift the Cubs. Chicago starter Jake Arrieta pitched seven sharp innings and left with a 1-0 lead after Luis Valbuena's RBI single in the fourth. Curtis Granderson tied it with a two-out RBI single off Pedro Strop in the eighth, snapping skids of 0-for-17 and 1-for-29. A diving catch by rookie centerfielder Arismendy Alcantara moments earlier prevented more damage.
