Final Score: Mets 5, Cubs 2—One win from the World Series

The Mets beat the Cubs again to take a 3-0 lead in the NLCS. This is apparently real life.

Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports

The New York Mets beat the Cubs to take a 3-0 lead in the NLCS, and they are one win from the World Series. The World Series.

The Mets never trailed in the game, though Jacob deGrom twice gave up game-tying solo home runs. But deGrom gave up only those two runs in seven innings of work. He struck out seven and walked one in his start.

Daniel Murphy hit another home run in the win because of course he did. David Wright had three hits. Yoenis Cespedes had three hits. There was good baserunning, good hitting, and good relief pitching from Tyler Clippard and Jeurys Familia.

If this all sounds a bit incoherent, well, it probably should.
