Daniel Murphy home run spree is making history with the New York Mets, the player hit his sixth home run in the playoffs, and won the National League Championship Series MVP trophy.

In Game 4 during the eighth inning, Murphy hit a home run that allowed two runs in the 8-3 victory over the Chicago Cubs.

The player set a major league record after scoring six straight home runs in postseason games, leaving Carlos Beltran behind, Beltran had homered in five straight games with the Houston Astros during the 2004 postseason.

After this, Beltran signed a seven-year, $119 million contract with the Mets that offseason. Murphy is planning to be a free agent after the World Series.

“I can’t explain why the balls keep going out of the ballpark, but they do,” according to Murphy, “And we keep winning ballgames, which is the most important part and the coolest part.”

Murphy and Lou Gehrig are the only two players with seven straight postseason games with a hit, a run and an RBI. Murphy’s homer was scored against Cubs reliever Fernando Rodney, giving the Mets an 8-1 lead.

“I can’t even explain Murphy,” hitting coach Kevin Long Fernando Rodney stated. “Murphy is on a different planet right now. He really is. The last at-bat, he’s looking for a changeup, and he hits a 97 mph fastball out. That’s where he’s at right now. It’s mind-boggling. It really is.”

Murphy explained “He threw some really good changeups to Kirk Nieuwenhuis. So I went to Kevin, and I said, ‘I’m going to look for that changeup.’ And he threw two heaters, and the second one exploded on me. So now I’m like, ‘I don’t know what to look for. I might as well stay in the changeup, because I don’t have the fastball measured.’ And he threw another heater, and I just swung. I hoped I would have took it. And then, when I hit it, I said, ‘Oh, my goodness.’ Then [center fielder] Dexter [Fowler] went after it. I thought he was going to catch it. And then the netting caught it. I don’t know. I can’t explain it.”

Murphy is the third player in history to score home runs in the same postseason against the regular-season MLB leaders in wins, ERA and strikeouts (Arrieta, Greinke and Kershaw, respectively). The player joined Frank Thomas and Mickey Mantle, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.
