The Mets beat the Dodgers 3-2 in their NCLS playoff series.

The Mets went on to sweep the Cubs and secure a spot in the World Series. The Dodgers can try again next year.

Yesterday, Schiff took part in the Benghazi Committee's 11-hour hearing of Hillary Clinton.

Today, he's singing the New York Mets' fight song.
