The New York Mets are headed to the World Series (!)

Updated

Ya gotta believe!

On Wednesday, October 21, 2015, the New York Mets defeated the Chicago Cubs in game four of the National League Championship Series, advancing to the World Series after a miracle month of stunning home runs and power pitches.

It will be the first time the Mets will be in a World Series in 15 years – they haven’t been World Series champions since 1986.

Players ran through the field with clenched fists in the air after sweeping the series 8 to 3 at Wrigley Field. Champagne was thrown to fans in the stands by manager Terry Collins, and after in the Mets locker room to goggle-covered faces.

Daniel Murphy, whose incredible recent performance has left fans shocked, broke a record with his sixth consecutive postseason home run. In the first inning alone, first baseman Lucas Duda and catcher Travis d’Arnaud hit back-to-back homers.  

Game 1 of the World Series will be Tuesday either in Kansas City or Toronto.
