New York Mets Sweep Cubs, Earn World Series Bid
Thanks to some electric bats and a historic power surge from Daniel Murphy, the New York Mets have clinched a World Series berth for the first time in a decade and a half.
Six games, six homers; that's the story of Daniel Murphy's postseason. Taking the record from Carlos Beltran when he was a Killer B down in Houston, Murphy was kerosene to the Mets' inferno of an offense.
The Mets won the series in four games, sweeping the Cubs with a 8-3 final on Wednesday night. The Mets won game three by a score of 5-2, game two with a 4-1 score, and the first game by a 4-2 final.
The New York Mets will take on the Toronto Blue Jays or Kansas City Royals depending upon the result of that series.
