The Chicago Cubs (34-55) fell to the New York Mets (56-34) 8-0 at Wrigley Field on July 14, showing the chasm between the teams.
It was the Cubs' seventh consecutive loss.
The Mets won for the third time in four games, maintained their 2 1/2-game lead over Atlanta in the NL East and improved their road record to 28-19, ESPN noted. The Cubs have totaled three runs over their last three games.
Cubs manager David Ross was ejected by third-base umpire John Tumpane with two out in the fourth while arguing for a balk to be called on Carrasco.
They'll resume their series Friday, July 15.
On the flip side, the visiting Chicago White Sox (44-45) routed the Minnesota Twins (49-42) 12-2 in what some say is the South Siders' most important series this season.
Luis Robert hit his first grand slam and Johnny Cueto pitched six strong innings, ESPN noted. In addition, Andrew Vaughn homered and drove in two runs for Chicago, and Tim Anderson had two hits and scored three runs.
Michael Kopech will be the starting pitcher for the White Sox as the teams meet again Friday, July 15.
The U.S. government sued the Chicago Cubs and accused the team of failing to make Wrigley Field accessible to those with disabilities when the century-old ballpark was modernized in a half-billion dollar project that added luxury seating, bathrooms and restaurants, ESPN reported.
It asks for compensatory damages and civil penalties and demands that the team fix the problems to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
The Cubs responded in a statement that they are disappointed that the lawsuit was filed and said they hope the matter can be resolved amicably. The team said the renovation of the ballpark, a national and city landmark, "greatly increased" accessibility in accordance with the law and the historic preservation standards, with 50% more accessible seating options, 11 more elevators and enhanced audio assistance for fans with hearing impairments.
Rebekah Gardner recorded her first double-double for the visiting Chicago Sky (18-6) as the team beat the Los Angeles Sparks (10-14) 80-68 on July 14.
Gardner had 18 points and 10 rebounds to lead Chicago at the Sparks' crypto.com Arena. Nneka Ogwumike led Los Angeles with 16 points.
The Sky will next travel to Arlington, Texas, to play the Dallas Wings Saturday, July 16. The tipoff at College Park Center is at 7 p.m. CT and will be air on CBS Sports Network, Bally Sports Southwest Extra and the Marquee Sports Network.
