Royals Take the World Series Crown for First Time in 30 Years.
Sunday night, the Kansas City Royals faced off against the New York Mets in game five of the World Series. In what seems to be the norm for the Royals, the game went into extra innings after the Royals came back from being down 0-2 at the top of the 9th. The game continued into the 12th inning where the Royals blew the Mets away earning 5 Runs. The tie-breaking run came from Jarrod Dyson, off a hit by Christian Colon. This was his first time at bat this post season, and boy did he make it count. This was followed by a double from Alcides Escobar to see Colon home. Finally, a double hit by Lorenzo Cain allowed runs from Paulo Orlando, Escobar and Ben Zobrist. The Mets' fate was sealed in the bottom of the 12th as Royals' Wade Davis threw out Mets' Wilmer Flores leaving the final score 7-2 and the Royals the 2015 World Series Champions.
