|Met's Santana Shuts Down Cubs
|NEW YORK (AP) -- Johan Santana fought through mild trouble for six innings to keep the game scoreless before David Wright came through with an RBI double, and the New York Mets beat the Chicago Cubs 5-2 Thursday night for their first series win of the season.
Jeff Francoeur broke an 0-for-24 slump with an RBI single in the Mets' four-run sixth. Ike Davis had three hits and New York took three of four from the Cubs after dropping its first four series this season.
Francisco Rodriguez got five outs for his first save of the year. He entered with the bases loaded in the eighth and allowed a sacrifice fly before striking out pinch-hitter Tyler Colvin to end the inning.
