After waiting twenty-one years and coming up short last year, the Kansas City Royals finally find themselves on top of the baseball world once again after defeating the New York Mets four games to one to win the World Series.
In game five, after trailing 2-0 heading into the top of the ninth, it seemed unlikely that the Royals would pull off another come-from-behind win. Matt Harvey was pitching an excellent game and only needed three more outs to get the win and extend the series. But after giving up a walk to lead-off the inning, followed by a double and some timely hitting by the Royals, the Mets found themselves on their heels and looking for anything to get the momentum back.
After two scoreless frames, the Royals batted-in five runs in the top of the twelfth-inning and held the Mets scoreless in the bottom half of the inning to seal a 7-2 victory and a World Series title for the first time since 1985.
