Mets hold off Dodgers 3–2, move on to NLCS
New York Mets starting pitcher Jacob DeGrom got into trouble early on, but did just enough to earn a 3–2 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers and send his team to the National League Championship Series.
DeGrom threw 105 pitches over six innings, striking out seven and giving up six hits. He gave up two runs in the first inning and ran his pitch count up early, but managed to work out of multiple jams.
Greinke gave up three earned runs on six hits through 6.2 innings.
The Mets will take on the Chicago Cubs for a chance to head to the World Series. The NLCS begins on Saturday at Citi Field.
