It took 12 innings, but the Kansas City Royals were able to clinch the World Series title tonight. The Royals headed into last night's game five at Citi Field with a 3-1 lead over the New York Mets. For the majority of the game, however, the team was scoreless, with Mets pitcher Matt Harvey seemingly headed for a shut-out. That all changed in the top of the ninth inning. The Mets lost their comfortable two-run lead after walking Royals player Lorenzo Cain, who then stole second and scored a run thanks to a double from Eric Hosmer. Hosmer also scored thanks to a throwing error, bringing the game to a 2-2 tie. The game then moved to overtime. The Royals rallied in the 12th, scoring runs from Jarrod Dyson, Christian Colón (making his first at-bat in the playoffs), Paulo Orlando, Alcides Escobar, and Ben Zobrist. That brought the score to 7-2, and the Mets were unable to come back. The win marks the second World Series victory in Royals franchise history, and their first since 1985.
