Wheeler continues impressive run as Campbell’s HR pushes Mets past Cubs

Wheeler went 6.2 innings and allowed two runs on four hits and four walks while striking out 10. It was his third career game with 10 or more strikeouts and first since notching 10 against the Marlins on April 25.

Wheeler came out with the 3-2 lead after issuing a two-out walk to Chris Coghlan in the seventh, yielding after 120 pitches to Black who fanned Javier Baez for the last out in the frame.

Over his last nine starts, Wheeler is 5-0 and has pitched 58 innings to a 2.02 ERA.

Striking out 10 against the Cubs shouldn't be noteworthy. Baez is good for 3 a game just on his own.

Dilson Herrera continues to destroy EL pitching. .339/.407/.568 as a 20 year old 2b? Pretty goood.

Matt Reynolds is doing well too, .335/.388/.507 in the PCL as a SS.

A year from now, I could see that being the Mets starting DP combo.

Even Wilfredo Tovar has been interesting, .296/.364/.362, as a 22 SS in the EL.
