Kansas City Royals beat Mets in World Series Game 4: Results, score, highlights, how Royals won
World Series Game 4 was a close fight. To be true it was a match that will be known for blunders made by players from both the sides.
World Series game 4 seemed to be going for Mets but eventually it ended in an emphatic win for the Kansas City Royals. Alex Rios made mistakes on the field and there were many missed opportunities, but the missed opportunities and blunders made by New York Mets were far more and far bigger than those of Royals and so no one should feel disappointed
Following the criticism for his mistakes that he made in the match Alex Rios says, â€œIt’s a mental mistakeâ€¦But what do you do? You can’t just put your head down. You have to compete. If you put your head down, you’re done.”
When asked about his comment, Royals manager Ned Yost brushed aside the criticism and just threw his own question, â€œWhat do you think?â€. Obviously this would have been a huge embarrassment in the case of a loss, but a win itself creates a cloak around many such mistakes.
Mets at one time looked in commanding position, but then the match started slipping away from them. Michael Conforto’s leadoff home run in the third against Chris Young put the Mets ahead. Flores singled, ending an 0-for-10 Series start, advanced on a wild pitch and was sacrificed to third by pitcher Steven Matz. Later Royals asked umpires whether Flores left third base early. But when video was reviewed by umpire Bill Welke, the safe call on the field was allowed to stand.
In a statement released later Major League Baseball said, â€œThe replay official could not definitively determine that the runner left the base prior to the ball touching the fielder’s gloveâ€.
It seems to have a major impact on Metsâ€™ performance later. Mets manager Terry Collins says, â€œThat certainly was a big run at the timeâ€¦Not by any stretch of the imagination did we think the game was over. We knew we had a long way to go, and we still had to get some big outs and we didn’t do it.â€
