The New York Mets are into the World Series for the first time in 15 years after completing a sweep of the Chicago Cubs on Wednesday.

The Mets completed a 4-0 National League (NL) Championship Series win with an 8-3 victory in game four at Wrigley Field.

Lucas Duda was the hero for the Mets with five RBIs, including hitting a three-run homer in the first inning.

Travis d'Arnaud also homered in the first and Duda had a two-run double in the second.

The red-hot Daniel Murphy went four-for-five with yet another homer.

He became the first player in MLB history to hit a homer in six consecutive post-season games.

The Cubs only managed six hits and starting pitcher Jason Hammel came through just 1.1 innings, giving up five runs.

Steven Matz pitched 4.2 innings for the Mets as they eased to a win and first World Series appearance since 2000.

Just who they will face in the World Series remains to be seen after the Toronto Blue Jays stayed alive against the Kansas City Royals.

The Blue Jays pulled back to a 3-2 deficit in the American League (AL) Championship Series courtesy of a 7-1 victory in game five.

Marco Estrada was the star for Toronto, pitching 7.2 innings of three-hit ball and striking out five.

Troy Tulowitzki had the key moment offensively, hitting a three-run double to put the Blue Jays 5-0 up in the sixth.

Game six is at Kauffman Stadium on Friday.
