    Brandon Nimmo #9 of the New York Mets hits a three run home run in the fourth inning as Willson Contreras #40 of the Chicago Cubs defends at Citi Field on July 1, 2016 in the Flushing neighborhood of the Queens borough of New York City.This is Nimmo's first major league home run. Mets won 10-2.

    Brandon Nimmo's three-run homer in the fourth inning was one of five home runs by the New York Mets off Jason Hammel in a 10-2 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Friday night that ended Jacob deGrom's 10-start winless streak.

    James Loney and Asbrubal Cabrera hit consecutive homers in the second inning, just before a 68-minute rain delay, and Cabrera hit a two-run drive in the fifth, shortly after Yoenis Cespedes' solo shot. New York hit five homers at home for the first time in 16 years, and Cespedes reached 20 homers in a season for the fifth time.

    DeGrom (4-4) allowed one run and three hits in five-plus innings, leaving after the third delay — which brought the total to 1:19 in a game that ended at 12:05 a.m. 

    Hammel (7-5) was tagged for career highs of 10 runs and five homers.
