Cubs hit 5 homers to back Jon Lester vs. Mets

NEW YORK -- Cubs manager Joe Maddon stopped at St. Patrick's Cathedral on Tuesday, but not to light a candle for his team.

"I really avoid praying for success as a group, hitting or pitching," Maddon said. "That's not what candles are for."

It wasn't divine intervention either that prompted Maddon to insert Anthony Rizzo into the leadoff spot, but it worked. Rizzo provided a spark and rookie Ian Happ smacked a grand slam to help Jon Lester pick up his 150th career win in the Cubs' 14-3 victory Tuesday night over the Mets.

Grand slams mean 40% off pizza

Jason Heyward added a two-run homer in the sixth, Kris Bryant hit a solo shot in the seventh and Javier Baez belted a two-run blast in the ninth as every Cubs starter recorded a hit, including Lester, to help them end their road losing streak at nine games. The five home runs are a season high for the Cubs as well.
