Mets Edge Out Dodgers for NLDS Win
These underdogs have some bite. New York’s younger club dismissed the erstwhile Brooklyn Dodgers in a razor-thin finale yesterday, defeating Los Angeles 3-2 in a winner-take-all Game 5 thriller. Pitcher Jacob deGrom held off the determined Dodgers, while Daniel Murphy contributed a double, sharp base-running and a sixth-inning homer to seal the victory. The Mets will now host the Chicago Cubs on Saturday, with both teams looking to shed their under-performing pasts as they vie for pennant glory in the Championship Series.
