Daniel Murphy's go-ahead home run led the New York Mets past the Los Angeles Dodgers 3-2 in the MLB play-offs.

Murphy blasted a sixth-inning homer off Zack Greinke in the sixth inning as the Mets sealed a 3-2 series win in the National League (NL) Division Series.

With the win, the Mets advanced to the NL Championship Series and will face the Chicago Cubs.

The pitching battle between Jacob deGrom and Greinke eventuated in LA, but both teams got on the scoreboard early.

Murphy's RBI double was cancelled out by Justin Turner bringing in Corey Seager, before Adrian Gonzalez came home thanks to Andre Ethier's RBI single.

Travis d'Arnaud had a sacrifice fly in the fourth as Murphy scored before the latter's blast in the sixth.

Greinke came through 6.2 innings but gave up six hits while striking out nine, while deGrom conceded six hits in six innings of work.
