MLB Playoffs 2015: Daniel Murphy turns in clutch performance of the week

Playing a winner-take-all playoff game on the road is challenge. When you’re facing a Cy Young award favorite in that game, the challenge gets taken up a few notches. Mets second baseman Daniel Murphy was up to that challenge against the Dodgers in Game 5 of the NLDS.MLB PLAYOFFS 2015: The eight most bizarre moments (so far) His first-inning double off Zack Greinke drove home the Mets’ first run of the game. Josh Harrison Jersey In the fourth inning, he led off with a single and soon after turned in maybe the most heads-up play of the entire postseason. The Dodgers were playing an extreme defensive shift on Lucas Duda, with three infielders on the right side of the diamond.

So Murphy took it, then scored on a sacrifice fly by Travis d’Arnaud, which knotted the game at 2-2.Murphy wasn’t done. His sixth-inning home run off Greinke — he had already homered twice off Cy Young candidate Clayton Kershaw in the series, remember — put the Mets ahead, 3-2. And that was all the Mets needed to clinch their spot in the NLCS.
