Jake Arrieta pitched eight sparkling innings, Kris Bryant homered for the second straight day and the Chicago Cubs spoiled Noah Syndergaard anticipated debut with a 6-1 victory over the New York Mets on Tuesday night.
Arrieta (4-3) had a season-high 10 strikeouts and allowed one run and three hits. The right-hander had dropped each his last two starts.
Bryant had three hits, including his first major league triple. The rookie star hit a leadoff shot against Hansel Robles in the eighth, sending a towering shot to the back of the bleachers in left.
