The New York Mets are into their first world series in 15 years after beating Chicago Cubs 8-3 in game four of the National League Championship Series.
Victory in game four saw the Mets book their spot in the World Series in emphatic fashion, sweeping the Cubs in all four games they played in the series.
Powered by starting pitchers Matt Harvey, Noah Syndergaard, Steven Matz, and Jacob deGrom, the Mets held the Cubs batters to only eight runs across the four games, and the Mets slugged their way to an impressive 21 runs.
Daniel Murphy became the first player in Major League Baseball history to hit a home run in six consecutive playoff games with his two-run, that put the finishing touches on any hopes Cubs fans had of breaking their 107 year drought without a World Series title.
The Mets will play the winner of the American League Championship Series between the Kansas City Royals and the Toronto Blue Jays.
Kansas City holds a 3-2 lead in the best of 7 series, with game six set to be played in Kansas City tomorrow. – Luke Cullen
