New York Mets are World Series bound

For the first time since 2000, the Mets are the National League Champions.

The champagne was flowing at Wrigley Field as the Mets continued their dominance over the Cubs and completed a four game sweep in the NLCS. 

The Amazin's got the party started early as Lucas Duda cranked a three-run home run and Travis d'Arnaud followed with a solo shot to put four runs on the board in the top of the first inning. 

Rookie pitcher Steven Matz had a steady outing tossing 4 2/3 innings while surrendering one run and striking out four. 

Duda extended the Mets lead to 6-0 with a two RBI double to left field to plate David Wright and Daniel Murphy. 

Chicago finally got on the board in the fourth after Kyle Schwarber grounded out to first and Jorge Soler scored.

In the eighth inning a red hot Daniel Murphy stepped to the plate and homered for the sixth consecutive game to set a new MLB playoff record. Murphy's two-run shot served as the final dagger in the Cubs season. 

Kris Bryant knocked a two-run blast over the ivy off Tyler Clippard in the bottom of the eighth inning, but that was the last run of the ballgame.

Jeurys Familia slammed the door in the ninth and the Mets mobbed the infield to celebrate their 2015 National League Championship.

On the exact date (Oct. 21, 2015) that Back to the Future II predicted  that the Cubs would sweep and win the World Series, it was the Mets who had the brooms out and punched their ticket to the Fall Classic.

New York awaits the winner of ALCS between the Kansas City Royals and Toronto Blue Jays. 

Game 1 of the World Series will be on Tuesday, Oct. 27.
