      Murphy homers in 8th, leads Mets over Cubs 4-3

      Daniel Murphy hit a tiebreaking home run in the eighth inning and the New York Mets beat the Chicago Cubs 4-3 on Sunday for their first series win at Wrigley Field since 2007.

      Murphy hit a leadoff shot against reliever Kyuji Fukikawa (1-1). The Mets won two of three on their trip to Chicago.

      Mets rookie Juan Lagares hit first major league homer, a tying, two-run drive in the seventh against Cubs starter Travis Wood.

      Scott Rice (2-3) pitched two scoreless innings. Bobby Parnell earned his sixth save.

      Wood hit his first homer of the season and fourth of his career, clearing the left-field bleachers with a drive off Dillon Gee in the fifth to end a scoreless tie.
