Game 5 of the NLDS has been a thriller thus far.

The Mets just tied things up against Zack Greinke in the top of the fourth inning thanks to a nifty baserunning play from Daniel Murphy. After Murphy reached on a leadoff single, Yoenis Cespedes flew out to center field for the first out. Lucas Duda then drew a walk, but Murphy noticed that nobody was covering third base because of the shift, so he scampered all the way from first base to third on the play. He was eventually brought home on a sacrifice fly from Travis d’Arnaud.

Jacob deGrom has given the Dodgers all sorts of chances thus far, but Game 5 is tied 2-2 as we move to the bottom of the fourth inning.
