Ike Davis had a three-run homer and an RBI double as he combined with Murphy, Hairston and Wright to drive in all 17 runs — with each having at least four RBIs — to help the Mets snap a four-game losing streak.

The Mets had their highest scoring total since they had 18 at Wrigley Field on Sept. 5, 2010. It was also the most runs the Cubs have allowed since that game.

Mets starter Jonathon Niese (6-3) struck out six and held the Cubs to one run over seven innings.

New York’s first seven hits went for extra bases, six of them off Cubs starter Jeff Samardzija (5-7).
