NEW YORK -- Jason Hammel gave up a second-inning home run to James Loney and to his next batter, Asdrubal Cabrera.He allowed long balls to Brandon Nimmo in the fourth and Yoenis Cespedes and Cabrera in the fifth, too.Always trying to get to new levels in your career, set career highs, so I got a couple of those taken care of tonight, Hammel said Friday night after the Chicago Cubs 10-2 loss to the New York Mets. Ill just let this one disappear.Hammel (7-5) was tagged for career highs of 10 runs and five homers, giving up nine hits in four-plus innings as his ERA rose from 2.58 to 3.45. He tied the Cubs record for home runs allowed in a single game.He was throwing his fastball, but it was not going where he wanted it to, Cubs manager Joe Maddon said. And they werent missing it.Hammel is 0-4 in five starts since a win June 4 over Arizona.Im almost at a loss for words just because of how bad it was, Hammel said.Chicago (51-28) still has the best winning percentage in the major leagues at .646, but the Cubs can be matched Saturday if they lose and Texas (52-29) wins. The Cubs have lost eight of their last 12 games, including the first two in the four-game series against the Mets.Honestly, its kind of difficult to maintain that .700 pace everybody keeps talking about, Maddon said before the game. Im just looking about winning series.Loney and Cabrera hit consecutive homers in the second, just before a 68-minute rain delay, and Cabrera hit a two-run drive in the fifth, shortly after Yoenis Cespedes solo shot. Nimmos first big league homer, a three-run drive, extended the lead to 7-1. New York hit five homers at home for the first time in 16 years.Jacob deGrom (4-4) allowed one run and three hits in five-plus innings, leaving after the third delay -- which brought the total to 1 hour, 19 minutes in a game that ended at 12:05 a.m. He had been 0-4 since beating San Francisco on April 30 despite a 3.13 ERA over that 10-start span. The Mets had scored three runs in his previous five outings.Kris Bryant homered for the second straight night, sending his NL-high 23rd of the season into the second deck in left. He has six homers in his last eight games.Maddon looked ahead to the next two games. Jake Arrieta starts Saturday against Bartolo Colon, and Jon Lester goes Sunday versus Noah Syndergaard.Weve got a chance to split the series. Weve got two good pitchers coming up, Maddon said. Honestly, regardless of what happened tonight, I would prefer that over playing two tomorrow, the day game on Sunday and the three day games to follow. It didnt turn out well wins and losses, but, nevertheless, we fought through it and now we have a chance to split.TRAINERS ROOMCubs: RHP Adam Warren, who pitched five innings for Triple-A Iowa on Thursday, probably will make a spot start during the series against Cincinnati that starts Monday at Wrigley Field. ... INF Tommy La Stella (strained right hamstring) could finish his rehab stint in Iowa and rejoin the Cubs this weekend. ... CF Dexter Fowler (right hamstring) wont be ready to be activated when he is eligible Monday.UP NEXTIn his last start, Arrieta (12-2) allowed a season-high five runs in an 11-8 win over Cincinnati. DeVante Parker Jersey . LOUIS -- Lance Lynn was one of the more enthusiastic participants as the St. Xavien Howard Jersey . Miikka Kiprusoff had just announced his retirement after a decade-long run in Calgary and it would be up to Berra and Ramo to fill the void. http://www.cheapdolphinsjerseyselite.com/?tag=cheap-jarvis-landry-jersey . Rob Manfred, baseballs chief operating officer, testified last week during the grievance filed by the players union to overturn Rodriguezs 211-game suspension. A person familiar with the hearing, speaking on condition of anonymity, told The Associated Press on Saturday that Manfred testified the sport wasnt concerned whether Bosch distributed performance-enhancing drugs to minors because MLBs interest was his relationship with players under investigation. Michael Thomas Jersey . Brad Jacobs and his Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., team took control of the game early. Cheap Walt Aikens Jersey . The third-ranked Ivanovic, who won the event in 2008 and 10, served five aces and broke Wickmayer, also a former winner in 2009, five times. "The result looked easier than it really was," Ivanovic said. PITTSBURGH -- Matt Cullen is well aware of the Stanley Cup hangover. The longtime NHL forward helped the Carolina Hurricanes raise the trophy in joy in the spring of 2006 and watched from afar after signing with the New York Rangers while his former teammates missed the postseason completely the following season.The trappings of success -- and the considerable emotional and physical toll it takes to get to the top -- make sustaining it all the more difficult.Yet the 39-year-old Cullen is back for another run with the Pittsburgh Penguins anyway, returning for a 19th season in part because he still loves the game and in part because he doesnt see the edge the team carried on its way to the franchises fourth Cup has dulled in the slightest. The proof came in the form of a three-on-three drill during a training camp practice that Cullen likened to a playoff atmosphere, even with the postseason still more than six months away.It would be easy to come in and have a bit of a lackadaisical camp and feel good about what you did last year, Cullen said. But I think guys have done a good job of turning the page.Pittsburghs bold-faced names included. Captain Sidney Crosby, mired in such a deep funk at the beginning of 2015-16 it seemed as if his prime had come and gone, backed up his Conn Smythe-winning performance as the playoff MVP by brilliantly leading Team Canada to victory in the World Cup of Hockey.I dont have to look too far to think about how tough it was a year ago starting out the season, Crosby said after picking up 10 points during the tournament. I think I appreciate this a lot.And the shot to do it -- well, at least the Cup part -- again in 2017. Pittsburgh did little to tinker with the roster that toppled San Jose in six games in the Cup final, instead doubling down on the mix of talent, speed, youth and grit that gelled so fiercely when Mike Sullivan was promoted to replace Mike Johnston as head coach in the middle of December.The only notable departures during the offseason were oft-injured forward Beau Bennett and veteran defenseman Ben Lovejoy. Almost all of the free-agent deals they struck were of the two-way variety for players who will be asked to fill when the regulars get banged up. Regardless of who is out there, the task will be the same as it was since the day Sullivan took over: play fast, play aggressive and never stop worrking.ddddddddddddI think we have a courageous group, Sullivan said. For me the best kind of toughness is the type of toughness that doesnt allow your opponents to deter you from your game and what Ive admired about our group was the focus of determination to play our game and not somebody elses.Some things to look for as Pittsburgh tries to become the first team in nearly 20 years to repeat.GOALTENDING QUANDRY: At some point the Penguins are going to have to decide who their No. 1 goaltender is after rookie Matt Murray played so solidly during the postseason after Marc-Andre Fleury went down with a concussion on the eve of the playoffs. Sullivan as committed to splitting the playing time fairly evenly, though Fleury will get the majority of the reps early as Murray recovers from a broken hand.Both players insist theyre fine with whatever role theyre assigned and if they werent, its not like general manager Jim Rutherford particularly cares.Im happy we have two good goalies regardless of whether they have injuries or not, Rutherford said.REUNION TOUR: The HBK line of Carl Hagelin, Nick Bonino and Phil Kessel was Pittsburghs most dynamic during the playoffs, combining for 56 points. Kessel led the way (12 goals, 10 assists) to exorcise some of the demons from his tumultuous time in Toronto. In the smooth skating Hagelin and the savvy Bonino, Kessel found ideal running mates. While replicating that level of production will be difficult over the course of an 82-game season, its a pretty sweet starting point.YOUNG D: One of the reasons the Penguins let Lovejoy walk is because of a surplus of talent along the blue line, including 22-year-old Derrick Pouliot. The former first-round pick is still trying to put it all together after spending the last two years bouncing between the NHL and the minors. Sullivan has impressed upon Pouliot the importance of making the simple play instead of the hard one, a differentiation that Pouliot has often struggled with. The Penguins have paired him with Trevor Daley at times in the preseason in hopes Daleys intelligent approach will rub off.---This story corrects that the `H in the HBK line is Carl Hagelin instead of Patric Hornqvist and the line combined for 56 points instead of 53.
