The sun was shining and the Cubs fans could feel a win about an hour before Game 3 started.
When it was all said and done, the thunderstorms had moved in and Cubs fans were walking out of the stadium in downpour.
The New York Mets will go for a sweep and attempt to clinch a spot in the World Series in Game 4 inside Wrigley Field.
The copy and paste feature could be used here. Daniel Murphy homered once again.
Murphy launched his 5th home run in as many games, which puts him in the history books with Carlos Beltran, who did the same thing in 2004 with Houston. The Mets are now just one win away from their first World Series since 2000.
David Wright made impact in Game 3 as he finished 3 for 4 with a pair of runs scored.
New York will go with rookie Steven Matz in hopes of putting an end to this series and getting the Mets’ starters some solid rest.
Matz lost his appearance in the NLDS to the Dodgers as he gave up 3 runs on 5 hits in 6.0 innings of work.
The loss was Matz’s first loss in 7 major league starts.
Does Chicago have a magical run in them? They’ll need a “reverse Bartman” like outcome here as they find themselves down 3 games to none and on the brink of elimination.
When Steve Bartman interfered with a foul ball, the Cubs wheels fell completely off. Now, they need that sort of thing to happen to the Mets if they hope to make history and erase a 3-0 deficit.
Kris Bryant and Anthony Rizzo have gone cold at the wrong time for Chicago. Combined they are just 4 for 21 in the series.
Chicago will send out Jason Hammel, hoping he can provide a spark they so desperately need.
Hammel struggled in his NLDS outing as he finished allowing 2 runs on 3 hits while walking 3 before his inconsistency to hit the strike zone found him out of the game.
