World Series Recap: Game 5
By Mike Tanchevski

It took a ninth inning rally and extra innings for Kansas City to win their second World Series title in franchise history. The Royals, whose last title came in 1985, redeemed themselves for last season’s seven game loss to the San Francisco Giants.

Mets’ manager, Terry Collins will have to live with the decision of keeping his starting pitcher in the game for the ninth inning. Harvey had the Royals stymied all night. Collins reason for staying with his starter, Harvey held the royals scoreless through eight innings, only allowing four hits and one walk with nine strike outs.

However, Harvey had thrown over 100 pitches before coming out for the ninth inning and was beginning to wear. Kansas City took advantage of the opportunity in the final inning of regulation.

The Mets opened the scoring with a Curtis Granderson home run in the bottom of the first inning, giving the Mets a 1-0 lead. That score held up until the bottom of the sixth inning.

Granderson, who opened the frame with a walk, moved to second on David Wright’s single. He then advanced to third on an Eric Hosmer error and scored on Lucas Duda’s sacrifice fly to center to put the Mets up 2-0.

With Harvey’ s impeccable pitching effort that lead looked like it would send the series back to Kansas City for game six.

Harvey was lifted in the ninth after he walked Lorenzo Cain to start the inning before giving up an RBI double to Hosmer.

Jeurys Familia came on in relief and forced Moustakas to ground out, while advancing Hosmer to third base. Perez came to the plate next and hit a slow roller to third; Wright fielded the ball and froze the runner before throwing across the diamond for the out. Hosmer however, bolted for home on Wright’s release and was safe on a poor throw by Duda. The game was knotted at 2-2.

Herrera closed out the ninth for Kansas City sending the game to extra innings; it was second game in the series to go extra innings.

Both teams struggled through tenth and eleventh innings without any real scoring opportunities. In the top of the twelfth the royals opened the flood gates.

Salvador Perez walked and was removed for a pinch runner, Jarrod Dyson, who stole second. Christian Colon then singled to left scoring Dyson.

Paulo Orlando grounded into what appeared to be a fielder’s choice but Mets second baseman Daniel Murphy committed a crucial error and both runners were safe. Alcides Escobar then doubled Colon home and Orlando to third. Ben Zobrist was intentionally walked before Addison Reed was relieved by Bartolo Colon.

Colon wasn’t able to halt the Royals onslaught as he gave up a base clearing double to Cain. The five run inning effectively ended the game and gave the Royals the title.

Wad Davis closed out the game and the Royals celebrated their World Series title. Salvador Perez was named MVP.

A fate of scheduling has the two teams facing each other next April to open the 2016 regular season.
