The New York Mets defeated the Chicago Cubs in game two 4-1 to take a 2-0 series advantage. The series will now shift to Wrigley.

Mets starting pitcher Noah Syndergaard went 5 2/3 innings giving up one run on three hits. Thor fanned nine batters in his game two start.

In the first inning the Mets David Wright broke out of his slump when he drove in Curtis Granderson to give the Mets the early 1-0 advantage.

Daniel Murphy followed David by hitting his fifth homerun of the postseason making it 3-0 after one.  In the fourth Yoenis Cespedes hit an infield single scoring Curtis Granderson making it a 4-0 ball game. That would be all the offense the Mets would need.

Jake Arrieta was shaky for the better part of the night. Jake went 5 innings giving up four runs on four hits and two walks. Game two was Jakes worst outing of the postseason.

The Cubs first and only run of the game came in the 6th when Kris Bryant doubled to deep left field scoring Dexter Fowler putting the cubbies on the board.

Game three will be played Tuesday.
