If Game 2 is anything like Game 1 of the 2015 World Series, things are going to be extremely fun come Wednesday night.
The weird night got kicked off with a delay due to technical difficulties. FOX Network literally crashed resulting in the disappearance of Game 1 to viewers on TV. Once this became known to Joe Torre, who was in attendance, he put the game on hold.
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 faithful and players are kicking themselves right now. The look on the faces of a section filled with orange in the left field seats inside Kauffman Stadium said it all after the Mets 5-4 loss in Game 1 of the World Series.
New York was just 2 outs away from stealing Game 1 and securing home field advantage, but Jeurys Familia picked the wrong time to let up his first postseason home run. Alex Gordon took Familia deep and the lock down closer had a rare blown save.
Trying to grab a 1-1 series and head back to New York, the Mets will turn to RH Jacob deGrom in Game 2.
The RH got an extra days rest as he was pushed back to Game 2 for Matt Harvey. DeGrom has logged 20 innings this postseason and has allowed just 15 hits over that span. Even more impressive, deGrom has struck out 27 batters over that span.
Mets 2B Daniel Murphy finished 2 for 7 in the Game 1 of the World Series, but failed to record a home run for what would have been the 7th straight postseason game.
The Royals held serve in Game 1 as they currently retain home field advantage following their 4-3 win over the Mets.
Eric Hosmer continued to make his mark on baseball history as he recorded his 25th RBI with his walk off sac fly on Tuesday. As people always say, “baseball is a game of redemption.” Hosmer made a costly error that led to the Mets grabbing that 4-3 lead.
Following Gordon’s 9th inning game tying home run, Hosmer was the first to greet Alex Gordon as he entered the dugout.
In hopes of going up 2-0, the Royals will send RH Johnny Cueto to the hill. The RH was acquired at the trade deadline and has endured quite the roller coaster ride with the Royals.
In his ALCS start against Toronto, Cueto was roughed up. He allowed 8 runs in 2+ innings, which was just another down in his crazy tenure with the Royals.
Look out for 2B Ben Zobrist who is hitting .347 in 49 at bats this postseason.
