TBS continues to ride the New York Mets and Chicago Cubs into the Major League Baseball post-season ratings record book.

The network’s Oct. 19 coverage of Mets-Cubs NLCS Game 3 averaged 9.2 million viewers, a record for a TBS NLCS game, according to Nielsen Fast Nationals.

The telecast was up 92% over the network’s Game 3 coverage of the 2013 St. Louis-Los Angeles Dodgers NLCS series and 53% up over TBS’ Kansas City-Baltimore Orioles 2014 ALCS series coverage, according to the network.

TBS will air Game 4 of the Mets-Cubs series tonight. The Mets, who are up 3 games to none over Chicago, could eliminate the Cubs with a win.
