Cubs fans feeling good about series against Mets

CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) - It is off to New York for the Chicago Cubs!

Thursday night, the Mets got a solo home run in the seventh inning in Game 5 to beat the LA Dodgers 3-2. 

The Cubbies will leave for New York Friday to start the NLCS Saturday. And Chicago fans are already pumped up about the next round of the playoffs, with only four wins standing between the team and the World Series. 

Many fans can't wait for the series to come back to Wrigley Field. FOX 32's Jake Hamilton spoke with fans Friday morning. Watch the video above to see what they had to say about the matchup!

(And just saying, in the regular season, the Cubs won all seven games against the Mets.)

The Cubs will send Jon Lester to the mound for Game 1 Saturday night, and Javier Baez will start at shortstop after Addison Russell was shelved by a left hamstring injury.
