It’s Zack, with a “K.”

That’s just the easiest way to remember the correct spelling of Zack Wheeler’s first name, along with his optimum pitching style.

On a seasonably cool Friday night in Flushing, the Mets right-hander cranked up the heat and delivered in a 3-2 victory over the Cubs that snapped his team’s three-game losing streak.

Wheeler struck out 10 batters — reaching double figures for the third time in his career — on a night he allowed two earned runs on four hits and four walks over 6 ²/₃ innings, throwing a career-high 120 pitches.

Manager Terry Collins wanted to give Wheeler a chance to get through the seventh — the pitcher had announced before the inning his intention to finish seven — but pulled the plug after Chris Coghlan walked with two outs.

Just Wheeler’s mentality of wanting to finish the inning impressed the manager.

“That is the kind of bulldog I think he is becoming,” Collins said.

Eric Campbell’s three-run homer off Travis Wood in the fourth provided the Mets (58-65) with their offense after they were limited to four runs in the three-game sweep by the Nationals.

Wheeler (8-8) departed with two outs in the seventh Friday and watched Vic Black get the final out in the inning before Jeurys Familia and Jenrry Mejia worked a scoreless frame apiece.

For Wheeler, it marked the ninth straight start in which he lasted at least six innings and allowed three runs or fewer. Over that stretch he is 5-0 with a 2.09 ERA, and has emerged as the staff ace.
