The New York Mets defeated the Chicago Cubs last night 4-2. The Mets now lead the best of seven series 2-0.
The series now moves to Chicago.
“You see Murphy last night?” Jimmy asked Steve while both teens stood on the corner of Prospect Avenue, right outside Holy Name Church.
“Yeah man, he’s hot!” Steve answered sipping on a coffee, light and sweet from Henry’s deli.
“HOT? He’s homered off Arrieta, Lester, Greinke, and Kershaw this postseason!” Jimmy shouted.
The Mets second baseman hit a two-run homer in the bottom of the first last night to give the Mets a 3-0 lead.
“He’s a free-agent, there’s talk of the Mets not signing him,” Jimmy explained while he glanced at the New York Post.
“Good, then he should jump on the train and head to the Bronx, the Yankees can use him.” Steve said as he took off down Prospect Avenue to the schoolyard.
“Where ya going?” Jimmy shouted.
Steve kept walking, munching on his buttered roll ignoring Jimmy.
