These teams never met in the playoffs before, though they squared off in some memorable pennant races when they were NL East rivals (1969, '84, '89). New York had home-field advantage in this series despite finishing with the worst record among the five NL playoff teams. The Cubs won the season series 7-0, but the Mets returned the favor with a four game sweep in the NLCS.
