World Series Recap: Game 4
By Mike Tanchevski

The Royals took advantage of a Daniel Murphy error in the eighth inning to score three runs and post a come from behind 5-3 victory. The Royals are one win away from their first World Series title since 1985. Murphy, the Mets playoff catalyst, has cooled significantly in the World Series. His error may be a sign that his frustration at the plate is beginning to wear on him and affect his play in the field.

Kansas City continues to play with resilience and relentlessness, the comeback was the Royals sixth from at least two runs down this postseason.

Michael Conforto did everything he could to pull the Mets even in the series. The rookie left fielder hit two solo home runs to give the Mets an early lead.

New York opened the scoring when Conforto belted a first pitch offering from Chris Young over the wall in right field in the bottom of the third inning. Wilmer Flores then singled and took second on a wild pitch. Steven Matz bunted Flores to third and Curtis Granderson delivered the run with a sacrifice fly to right field to give the Mets a 2-0 lead.

The Royals cut the lead to 2-1 in the top of the fifth inning. Salvador Perez hit a one-out double and scored on Alex Gordon’s single to right.

Conforto put the Mets back on top by two runs, 3-1, in the bottom of the fifth inning with his second lead-off homer of the night.

The Royals ability to put balls in play paid huge dividends in the eighth inning, as they took advantage of inconsistent pitching and an error to take the final lead of the game.

Tyler Clippard, the Mets fourth reliever of the game, put pressure on his defense with his inability to throw strikes in the inning. He got Escobar to ground out to open the frame, but walked Zobrist and Cain before being lifted for closer Jeurys Familia.

Familia induced Eric Hosmer into a slow roller to second where Murphy tried to field off his left side, the ball rolled under his mitt into right field allowing Zobrist to score. Moustakas and Perez followed with back-to-back RBI singles to put the Royals up by two runs, 5-3.

Wade Davis closed out the game for Kansas City, pitching two scoreless innings to earn the save.

Both teams played the game with their bullpens. Royal’s starter Chris Young went four innings and gave up two runs on two hits. While Steven Matz lasted five innings for New York. Matz allowed two runs on seven hits with five strike outs.

Kansas City used four relievers in the game with Ryan Madson earning the win for his scoreless effort in the seventh inning.

The Mets trotted out six relievers on the night, with Clippard taking the loss.

The Mets chances of winning three straight games seem slim, but there is hope. New York’s three remaining starting pitchers, Harvey, deGrom and Syndergaard, are all scheduled to pitch on full rest.
