If there’s one thing this series is not, it’s boring! In addition to a series power outage in Game 1, the MLB championship kicked off with an inside-the-park home run, the first time in a World Series since 1929. Royals shortstop Alcides Escobar blasted the ball on the first pitch and put the Royals up by one run. Still, the Mets hung in there, taking the game a full 14 innings before ultimately losing 5-4. The game was recorded as the longest opening World Series game in history.
Unfortunately, things didn’t get much better for the Mets during Game 2. After Lucas Duda’s single gave the Mets the lead in the fourth inning, Kansas City came back with a vengeance, scoring four runs in the fifth inning. KC’s Johnny Cueto had standout performance, allowing just 2 hits in the game, which ended with another Kansas City victory at 7-2. Cueto became the fifth pitcher since 2000 to log nine innings with one run or fewer in a World Series game. Impressive!
Game 3 was the turning point for the Mets and the Royals. The Mets were back in Queens, and the home team advantage clearly helped them. They slaughtered the Royals at Citi Field 9-3.
