After a 14 inning marathon, the Royals took care of business in Game 2 with ease as they routed the Mets 7-1 to take a 2-0 lead in the World Series.
Now the series shifts to New York for the 1st of 3 in what is pretty much a must win for the Mets.
FOX borrowed the International Feed from MLB Network and things got back on. After New York took 4-3 lead into the 9th inning, Alex Gordon sent a pitch over the center field wall to send Kauffman Stadium into a frenzy and send the scoreboard to 4-4.
It took until the 14th inning of the 5 hour 9 minute game for Kansas City’s Eric Hosmer to hit a sac fly to win it.
The Mets were given the upper hand in terms of starting pitching this postseason, but that hasn’t been the case through the first two games. Their dependable closer blew a save in the 9th of Game 1 and their stud starter was knocked around in Game 2.
New York will return to Citi Field where they are 3-1 this postseason as they split 2 games with the Dodgers and took both against the Cubs.
Trying to get them back into the series, New York will toss Noah Syndergaard. The RH is 1-1 this postseason with an ERA of 2.77.
Syndergaard dominated his last time out as he shut the Cubs down for 5.2 innings allowing just 1 run on 3 hits. He struck out 9 in the dominant performance.
In 5 interleague starts this season, the RH struggled as he went 0-2 with an ERA of 5.86. However, inside Citi Field, he’s gone 7-2 with an ERA of only 2.46.
The Royals held par in the first two games of the World Series as they came from behind in both games to secure a 2-0 lead. Alex Gordon and Eric Hosmer played hero in both games as Gordon blasted a game tying home run in Game 1 and Hosmer knocked a SAC Fly to win Game 1 and knocked a 2 run single in Game 2 to put Kansas City in front.
The Royals finally got Johnny Cueto of old as he pitched a complete game 2 hitter in Game 2 as he had Mets’ hitters completely off balance all night long.
With two solid pitching performances under their belt, Kansas City will hand the ball to Yordano Ventura, who will be making his 5th start this postseason.
Ventura brings in a record of 0-1 with an ERA of 5.09 thus far. He has failed to make it through 6 innings in all 4 of his starts, but is coming off his best outing.
Ventura allowed just 1 run on 5 hits in 5.1 innings of work. This will be his first career start against the Mets.
