The Cubs went into Citi Field for a four game series against the team that knocked them out in the NLCS just last year. They left Citi Field without a victory, being swept by the New York Mets.
It was a rather sharp turn for a Mets team that had looked lost the last week or so. Mike Axisa of CBS Sports looked into how they went about the sweep and what it actually means for both teams.
More from around the National League Central:
- The Cardinals went on a spending spree in the international market, grabbing players four different Latin American countries. In the process, they went over they spending limit, opening the door for potential penalties.
- Another team in the Central, the Brewers, were active by inking nine international prospects to deals.
- Reds outfielder Adam Duvall is a Type 1 diabetic, and wears an insulin pump on the field. He has even had to get his blood sugar back up mid-game because he felt it becoming low.
- Starling Marte’s arm is causing opposing baserunners to take notice, and give the outfielder some respect.
