Curtis Granderson went 1-for-4 with an RBI double in Thursday's loss to the Cubs.
Nobody on the Mets managed to do much of anything against a locked-in Jake Arrieta, but Granderson at least prevented the shutout. His double in the third inning would score starter Jacob deGrom. And that, as they say, was that. A recent hot streak has helped push the Grandyman's slash-line for the season to .254/.349/.436 with 13 homers and 28 RBI. Jul 2 - 4:11 PM
