New York Mets second-baseman Daniel Murphy might not be human. He, once again, hit another MLB Postseason home run in Game 2 of NLCS.

It can’t be true. Right? It isn’t possible that the man did it again, against another downright filthy pitcher. Is it?
New York Mets second-baseman Daniel Murphy has done it again. He’s truly become Amazin’.
In Game 2 of the NLCS, while facing probable NL Cy Young award winner Jake Arrieta, Murphy hit is fifth home run of these 2015 MLB Playoffs. He once again pulled it in a one-handed perfect golf-swing fashion.

The home run gave the Mets the early 3-0 first-inning lead over the Chicago Cubs. David Wright, the batter before Murph, hit an RBI double over Dexter Fowler’s head in center-field.
Murphy has now hit postseason home runs off these phenomenal pitchers:

Meanwhile, Cubs reliever Jason Motte simply can’t believe Murphy’s theatrics as of late:
