Mets Fall to Cubs

David DeJesus hit a bases-loaded triple before injuring his shoulder when he crashed into the outfield wall, and the Chicago Cubs beat the New York Mets 6-3 on Friday night behind resurgent starter Edwin Jackson.

Nate Schierholtz homered and Anthony Rizzo had three hits for Chicago in the opener of a three-game series between big-market teams trying to rebuild. Jackson (3-8) went six innings for his second consecutive win, allowing one run and five hits while striking out seven.

Mets starter Shaun Marcum (0-8) was hit hard early but retired 12 straight during one stretch and pitched into the sixth. It was his first outing since throwing eight innings of splendid relief in a hard-luck loss to Miami on Saturday, when the Mets were beaten 2-1 in 20 innings.
