Championship Series Day 5: Game Thread

The NLCS is back on today after a travel day. Mets hold a 2-0 series lead. Blue Jays got one back from the Royals who are still holding onto a 2-1 series lead.

We're getting to the midway point for both the NLCS and ALCS. The Blue Jays were able to get within one game of the Royals. Meanwhile the Cubs are going to Game 3 down two games to the Mets. I'm hoping for the Cubs to come back and the Jays to even things up today. But that's not for the love of those teams. I just want each series to go to seven games because I don't want baseball to end.
