Daniel Murphy and Travis d'Arnaud each homered to back 7 and 2/3 solid innings from Matt Harvey as the Mets took the opener of the NL Championship Series with a 4-2 win over the Cubs at Citi Field on Saturday night.
Jacob deGrom battled through six tough innings, and Daniel Murphy helped produce all three of his team's runs as the Mets pulled out a 3-2 road win over the Dodgers in the series deciding Game 5 of the NL Division Series.
Jacob deGrom's MLB postseason debut couldn't have gone much better. The 27-year-old flame thrower outpitched three-time Cy Young Award winner Clayton Kershaw, striking out 13 Dodgers over seven shutout innings as the New York Mets grabbed Game 1 of the NLDS by a 3-1 final in Los Angeles Friday night.
The Mets drew first blood in round-two of the 2015 subway series, muscling through Masahiro Tanaka and the Yankees with three home runs in a 5-1 decision at Citi Field on Friday night. The outcome pushed the Mets a step closer to a division title and Yankees one further.
It's been more than four months since David Wright pulled a hamstring and headed to the disabled list, leaving the Mets without their biggest offensive force, presumably, for 4-6 weeks. Roughly three months ago, Wright learned of his spinal stenosis condition and doubt arose about whether he'd ever be able to return to baseball.
The Mets' Kelly Johnson had three extra base hits and three RBI's, Curtis Granderson had a homer and drove in three and Juan Lagares added a pinch-hit, three-run blast in the eighth to cap a four-game sweep of the Rockies, 12-3 at Citi Field Thursday afternoon.
