Mets Misery Continues at Wrigley

By JAY COHEN AP Sports Writer
CHICAGO (AP) _ Ryan Dempster pitched seven effective innings,
Starlin Castro had three hits and three RBIs and the Chicago Cubs
pounded the stumbling New York Mets 11-1 on Tuesday night.

Alfonso Soriano, Darwin Barney and Lou Montanez each had two
hits for Chicago, which kicked off a nine-game homestand with its
11th victory in its past 12 games against NL East teams. Montanez
started in right field hours after he was promoted from Triple-A
Iowa when the Cubs put right-hander Matt Garza on the 15-day
disabled list with elbow stiffness.

The Mets dropped their first game since a pair of magazine
articles about owner Fred Wilpon. Wilpon first made a couple of
chilly comments about three of the team’s biggest stars in an
interview with The New Yorker, then told Sports Illustrated the
club is “bleeding cash” and could lose up to $70 million this
year.
