Daniel Murphy has set a new major league home run record, hitting 6 dingers in six straight games. Murphy led the Mets powerhouse offense while the best starting pitching staff in baseball – Harvey, Syndegaard, deGrom and Matz – shut the Cubs down to a few scant runs. The Cubs never led in any of the 4 games.
Jeurys Familia, the closer, has been flawless in the post season.
Up next, Mets versus the Kansas City Royals or the Toronto Blue Jays.
