In Chicago’s Wrigley Field, where even the outfield ivy has taken on a role, the weight of history is now on the New York Mets’ side. Their 5-2 win over the Cubs in game 3 of the National League Championship Series on Tuesday gave them a 3-0 series lead, moving the Mets to within one victory of their fifth NL pennant and their first World Series appearance since 2000.
The Mets will try to close out the Cubs in game 4 tonight (7:30 p.m. ET air time, 8 p.m. game time on TBS).
