Murphy’s record-breaker put the seventh and eighth runs on the board for New York, and the Mets won the game 8-3. With the win, they completed a four-game sweep of the Cubs and advance to the World Series for the first time since 2000.

The New York Mets wasted no time jumping out in front of the Chicago Cubs on Wednesday, as they scored four first-inning runs during Game 4 of the National League Championship Series.

Lucas Duda started the run parade with a three-run homer, and Travis d’Arnaud followed with a solo shot of his own.
