This Date in Mets History

Five years ago today, the Mets completed their four game sweep of the Chicago Cubs in the NLCS, winning 8-3. Powered by home runs from Lucas Duda and Travis d’Arnaud in the first inning, the Mets jumped out to an early lead and never looked back. Daniel Murphy put the icing on the cake with a two-run homer in the eighth inning, his sixth consecutive postseason game with a home run. Jeurys Familia sealed the deal in the ninth inning to send the Mets to their first World Series since 2000. You can watch the final out and the great call by Howie Rose, here.
