Cubs Capitalize On Mets’ Miscues

By Associated Press

National League

Using errors by Butch Huskey and John Olerud to score two unearned runs in the seventh inning, the visiting Chicago Cubs beat the New York Mets 6-4 on Monday for their second straight victory.

The Cubs, 0-14 before winning the second game of Sunday’s doubleheader, took a 3-0 lead, then fell behind 4-3 in the sixth.

But the Mets, who have 15 errors in 18 games, gave Chicago three runs on three errors.

Scott Servais drove in three runs for Chicago, and Frank Castillo (1-3) allowed four runs and four hits in six innings. Servais hit a two-run double in the fourth and an RBI single in the sixth.

Terry Adams pitched 2-1/3 innings for the save.

Phillies 10, Pirates 2 Pittsburgh

Mike Lieberthal homered and the Phillies scored early for a change, giving Curt Schilling (3-1) all the support he needed.

Schilling scattered nine hits for his first career victory in six appearances in Three Rivers Stadium, the only N.L. stadium where he had never won.

Clearing the bases

Jason Isringhausen, the Mets’ 24-year-old right-hander, fractured his right wrist punching a plastic trash can after a poor outing with Norfolk of the International League. He will be sidelined until July or August. Isringhausen was recovering from right arm and shoulder surgery.… Kenny Lofton of Atlanta was named N.L. player of the week. He batted .621 with two home runs and five stolen bases.
