The Chicago Cubs escaped with a 1-0 victory against the New York Mets on Wednesday night.

Given the bullpen struggles, specifically closing out games, Cubs fans have grown used to holding their breaths whenever the North Siders are in a save situation.

Veteran Hector Neris has been the reliever that Cubs' manager Craig Counsell in place of Adbert Alzolay as the team's closer and Neris was on the mound on Wednesday as he tried to earn his fifth save in as many opportunities.

For Neris, while he has converted each save opportunity that he has faced this season, it hasn't been clean. That was the case on Wednesday night as after hitting Mets' slugging first baseman Pete Alonso with a pitch and then allowing a double to J.D. Martinez, Neris was in trouble as the Mets had both the tying run and walk-off run in scoring position.

Mets' second baseman Jeff McNeil was the batter and chaos ensued.

The final play in the Cubs' victory over the Mets has to be seen to be believed.

Ian Happ completing a double-play by bringing in a fly ball followed by throwing a runner out at home is the type of play that he made look easy last season as he did not once but twice in the team's July 4th victory over the Milwaukee Brewers. It's the type of play that Happ can point to as the reason why he is a reigning two-time National League Gold Glove award winner.

The play was reviewed for several minutes before it was confirmed that Cubs' catcher Miguel Amaya was not blocking the plate and that Alonso was, in fact, out. However, given how the results of the review were initially described, Mets' manager Carlos Mendoza was livid.

Drive home safely, Mets fans, make sure you have all hands on the steering wheel, unlike Alonso's hand on home plate.
