NEW YORK -- On days Kyle Hendricks is on the mound, he can count on Javier Baez, his buddy from the minor leagues, for plenty of run support. Its a combo beleaguered Cubs fans can get excited about. Hendricks and two relievers held New York to four or fewer hits for the fifth straight game, Baez and Anthony Rizzo homered, and Chicago rallied for a 4-1 victory over the Mets on Monday. "When hes pitching and he got a good game, I got a good game, too," Baez said. Teammates at Triple-A Iowa for much of the season, Baez hit two homers in his third career game to help make Hendricks a winner in his fifth career start -- on Aug. 7. This time, Baezs mammoth two-run shot into the second deck in left field off Mets closer Jenrry Mejia put Chicago up 4-1. "Thats typical right there," Hendricks said of the homer. "Not really shocking for us." Hendricks (5-1) gave up three hits in seven innings, allowing only Lucas Dudas home run in the fourth. The right-hander won his fourth straight start -- yielding four earned runs over 29 1-3 innings. "I wasnt that sharp but then made that mistake to Duda and it kind of locked me in after that," Hendricks said. Neil Ramirez struck out two in a perfect eighth and Hector Rondon allowed a leadoff double but finished the four-hitter for his 18th save. The Cubs came back once Carlos Torres, making a spot start for Bartolo Colon, was done after five innings. Luis Valbuena, who had three hits, had a tying single in the sixth. Rizzo connected off Buddy Carlyle (1-1) in the eighth for his 28th homer. The Mets had only 16 hits but split the four-game series with the Cubs. The five-game run matches the clubs longest streak of games with no more than four hits. They also went five straight in 2004 and 1963. The only time since 1914 the Cubs gave up four or fewer hits in four straight games was in 1983. "Maybe theyre swinging too much," manager Terry Collins said. "Its trying not to do too much, just try to put the barrel on the baseball." The 41-year-old Colon had to return to the Dominican Republic, where his mother was sick, forcing the durable Torres to make his first start since Sept. 27. He yielded three hits. Colons winter ball team, the Cibao Eagles, confirmed later Monday Colons mother died. The Mets will place Colon on the bereavement list and recall right-hander Gonzalez Germen from Triple-A Las Vegas on Tuesday. Torres became the first pitcher to start on no days rest since the Angels Billy Buckner did it June 25, 26 of last year. Torres threw nine pitches in facing two batters in the Mets 2-1 loss Sunday. TRAINERS ROOM Cubs: OF Chris Coghlan was out of the starting lineup. "Weve been pushing him pretty hard," manager Rick Renteria said. Coghlan has been playing with a sore left big toe. As a pinch hitter, he grounded out with the bases loaded in the eight. Mets: RHP Daisuke Matsuzaka could be activated from the DL to replace Colon. Matsuzaka (elbow inflammation) made a rehab start Saturday, allowing one run and three hits over six innings for Double-A Binghamton. UP NEXT Cubs: LHP Tsuyoshi Wada (2-1) will make his seventh big league start when Cubs host the San Francisco Giants on Tuesday. Mets: RHP Dillon Gee (4-5) is set for his first start at the Oakland Coliseum. He gave up four runs in four innings vs. the As at Citi Field on June 21, 2011. QUICK REVIEW Renteria challenged two plays, winning one and losing one. The total time for the two reviews was 1 minute, 23 seconds. Umpires needed 55 seconds to overturn a safe call on Matt den Dekkers attempted steal in the fourth. It only took 28 seconds to uphold an out call at first base in the fifth. GETTING BETTER The Cubs improved to 9-8 this month. Last year they were 8-20 in August. ZERO SUM Torres is first pitcher to strike out six on zero rest since the Cubs Steve Wilson struck out 10 on Sept. 10, 1989. He also is the first to throw at least five shutout innings on no rest since Philadelphias Bruce Ruffin went eight scoreless on June 21, 1991.

Despite 11-1 records, theyre out and Big Ten winner Ohio State is into the national semifinals. http://www.officialcowboysnflauthenticshop.com/. Strasburg (1-1) got 14 consecutive outs in one stretch and allowed only three hits, including Marcell Ozunas homer in the seventh. The right-handers lone walk was to the last batter he faced. Washingtons starter Wednesday, Jordan Zimmermann, left after a career-low 1 2-3 innings, leaving the bullpen "taxed," as manager Matt Williams put it. Tony Pollard Gear . -- Pelicans coach Monty Williams does not expect guard Eric Gordon to play in any of New Orleans final five games this season. Connor McGovern Gear . - Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Percy Harvin has cleared league-mandated concussion protocol and has returned to practice as a full participant.TORONTO - Emilio Bonifacio is a Kansas City Royal, Colby Rasmus is on the disabled list and Kevin Pillar and Munenori Kawasaki are up from Triple-A, the first in what could be a series of moves which reflect the harsh truths the Blue Jays face: the season is over and the future is now. "Boni wasnt getting a lot of playing time here and obviously scuffled with the bat," said general manager Alex Anthopoulos. "It was also a chance to get Pillar up here as well. I think in the next few days well probably have to make another move with an outfielder; were playing with three right now." Expect Anthony Gose to be recalled next, perhaps as early as Thursday. Colby Rasmus has a strained left oblique, suffered on a check swing during an at-bat on Sunday against Oakland. With Melky Cabrera down thanks to lingering knee trouble the Jays need both Pillar and Gose to maintain a complement of four outfielders. Jose Bautista is the mainstay in right field. Two of Pillar, Gose and Rajai Davis would man the other spots on a given night. Pillar arrives on merit. A 32nd round pick two years ago out of California State University Dominguez Hills, hes hit .299 or better at five minor league stops, rocketing through the system. Hes earned respect for "playing the game the right way" and is described by observers close to the Blue Jays as being "fundamentally sound." The latter should be music to a fans ears. "Clearly I could say, and I say that respectfully, we got him wrong," said Anthopoulos. "Just because if he has a chance to get to the big leagues you dont wait for the 30th round to select him. You could say that about Mike Piazza and Albert Pujols and Ian Kinsler and all these guys who were late picks.I think its a credit to the player and a credit to player development, both of them, really." The math says Pillar was passed over in the 2011 draft almost 1,000 times. Its a staggering number. Dont doubt Pillar remembers. Scouts say none of his tools stand out but emulating the work ethic of his baseball hero, Cal Ripken Jr., Pillar has met each challenge with success. "Being drafted in the 32nd round after wwhat I at least thought was a successful college career even though it was the Division II level, theres definitely a chip on my shoulder to prove that they may have got it wrong in the draft, that the system may not be perfect," said Pillar.dddddddddddd"Going in, naturally, I was already a little upset. I carried that chip on my shoulder." The Bonifacio trade came together after he was placed on waivers and claimed by Kansas City. The Jays will receive a cash consideration or a player in return and the two sides have about a month to work out the specifics. Bonifacios tenure in Toronto ends. In a way, it doesnt feel as if his tenure really began. He struggled offensively and defensively out of the gate, never putting together consistently good at bats and failing to stake claim to second base, which could have been his. With just a .258 on-base percentage, Bonifacios speed was rendered irrelevant and a strength of his - the stolen base - never materialized. He was thrown out six times in only 18 attempts. "Its one of those things, I mean you try everything and stuff doesnt come your way," said Jose Reyes, one of Bonifacios good friends on the club. "Boni is a guy whos hard working. He comes here early everyday, working to try to get better. For him, hes the guy if hes going to play he needs to play everyday. As a baseball player, when people tell you this is your position and youre going to play everyday there that puts your confidence level up. Its hard when you come to the ballpark and you dont know if youre going to be in the lineup or where youre going to play. Thats just me talking." DRABEK PROMOTED TO BUFFALO Right-hander Kyle Drabek, building up arm strength as he recovers from a second Tommy John elbow ligament replacement surgery, has been promoted to the Triple-A Bisons. In 10 appearances, eight starts, at two minor league stops (Single-A Dunedin and Double-A New Hampshire,) Drabek has a 2.83 ERA and 23 strikeouts in 28 2/3 innings. Drabek joins one-time Blue Jays rotation mate Drew Hutchison with the Bisons. Hutchison, like Drabek, is recovering from Tommy John surgery and both are expected to return to the majors before the season ends.
