For the first time since 2000, the New York Mets are heading to the World Series.

Led by second baseman Daniel Murhpy — who became the first player in MLB history to homer in six straight postseason games — the Mets handily beat the Chicago Cubs, 8-3,


After the game, Murphy told ESPN, “I can’t explain why the balls keep going out of the ballpark, but they do, and we keep winning ballgames, which is the most important part and the coolest part.”

The 30-year-old Murphy hit .529 (9-for-17) with four homers and six RBIs in the NLCS, earning him series MVP honors.
