NEW YORK (AP) - Scott Feldman allowed two hits in seven innings and Starlin Castro hit a two-run double to left in the Cubs' three-run eighth inning and Chicago beat the New York Mets 5-2 on Saturday.

Feldman (6-5) struck out six and had a two-RBI single in the fourth off Jonathon Niese (3-6) to help himself on the way to his first win since May 29.

Kevin Gregg got the last three outs for his ninth straight save and Chicago beat the Mets for the second day in a row, after losing 5 of 7 before getting to Queens.

Gregg allowed a leadoff single to Marlon Byrd and third baseman Cody Ransom mishandled Justin Turner's hard smash with one out, but John Buck and Juan Lagares flied out.
