Here is the AccuWeather forecast for Game 4 of the NLDS between the Mets and Dodgers on Tuesday at 8:07 p.m. at Citi Field: There will be some showers in the area this afternoon through 7 p.m. These will be light and most likely will not impact pregame activities. If showers linger through 8-9 p.m., they are not expected to be heavy enough to cause a delay. The wind during the game will blow out toward right field at 7-14 mph. The temperature at first pitch will be a mild 66 degrees, then fall only slightly to 63 by the end of the game.

Are Kershaw's playoff failures in his head?

Dallas Braden said of Clayton Kershaw, who is 1-6 with a 4.99 ERA in the postseason: "This is the time where he can make that statement and get that monkey off his back."

Six @Cubs hit home runs on Monday. That's an MLB postseason record that had the Wrigley faithful on its feet all night (including Eddie Vedder).


Cubs lift up Arrieta with six homers

Despite Jake Arrieta's shortest outing since June 16, Chicago took a 2-1 lead in the NLDS thanks to a postseason-record six dingers in its 8-6 win.

#PhotoOfTheNight: In the words of Cubs fans, "It is happening." With a 'W' last night, Chicago has chance to clinch NLCS berth at home today.

The Cubs have NEVER clinched a postseason series at home... Today could be a special day on the north side at Wrigley Field

Mets go off for 13 runs in Game 3 victory

After scoring five runs in the first two games of the series, New York got five RBIs from Curtis Granderson in a 13-7 win over Los Angeles, taking a 2-1 series lead.


Don Mattingly: Call me maybe?

Game 3 of the NLDS was delayed because the replay phone to the Dodgers clubhouse wasn't operating correctly. Los Angeles eventually lost to the Mets 13-7.


Granderson recaps five-RBI night

Mets RF Curtis Granderson discussed his record-setting performance and why he keeps his glove on his head: “I don’t want to lose it. ... This way I always know where it’s at. That way nobody can take it from me.”


Mark Saxon @markasaxon

Chase Utley declined to speak with media through a team spokesman, who shielded him physically from a couple of insistent reporters

Rizzo: 'Our confidence never goes down'

Anthony Rizzo started the postseason 0-for-12, but Chicago's 1B says he was ready to help out Jake Arrieta in "one of his rare hiccups.”

After enduring Adam Wainwright’s curveball to Carlos Beltran, two collapses, then six straight losing seasons, Mets fans had plenty to celebrate during the first postseason game in Queens in nine years. Following pregame introductions that included jeers for Chase Utley and cheers for Ruben Tejada, the Amazin’s blasted the Dodgers, 13-7, on Monday in Game 3 of the NLDS. The Mets took a 2-1 series lead and can advance with a win on Tuesday. The Mets established a franchise postseason scoring record. The previous mark came in a 12-5 NLCS win against the Cardinals on Oct. 15, 2006.
