Mets vs Cubs 2015 game 1: Time, TV schedule, live match

There is no denying the fact that the Cubs are in great form at the NL Championship Series after more than a decade. They have already beaten two division rivals are ‘just’ four wins away from their first NL pennant since 1945.

They seem to be a completely changed team this year. The way they are playing, they are talking and the way they are treating other teams. The sort of disdain they have shown towards their rivals shows that they are no longer the team whom almost everyone took lightly.

With the sort of performance they have come out this season they have left no one in any doubt that they are here to win and they have been winning.

This season they have shown a nerve of steel and a determination that was never expected of them. The Cubs started the postseason with a convincing 4-0 win against the Pirates in the wild-card game, then recovered from a Game 1 loss to take three straight from the Cardinals to win the NL Division Series.

On the other hand the Mets too have performed superbly. Then they capped a hard-fought series against the Dodgers with a 3-2 win Thursday in Game 5. There is no denying the fact that the New York boasts one of the deepest pitching staffs in baseball, and it was put on full display when normal starter Noah Syndergaard came on in relief of Jacob deGrom in the series finale.
