2015 World Series Mets vs. Kansas City Royals result: Royals enter World Series Â (video)
KANSAS CITY, Mo. â€” It is one of the biggest moments for The Kansas City Royals. They are back to World Series again after decimating Toronto Blue Jays rather deftly and the team and its fansâ€™ joy seem to have no limit.
They had to wait for around three decades to return to the World Series last year. And having done that once, they have proved their critics wrong by doing the honor once again this year.
One man who is being praised for his heroics against the Blue Jays is none other than Lorenzo Cain. He almost amazed everyone by scoring from first base on Eric Hosmerâ€™s single to deep right field in the eighth inning. With his heroics and great work done by other players in the side, the team beat Toronto Blue Jays 4-3 to win the American League Championship Series in six games and enter the World Series.
There is no denying the fact that many things went in favor of the Kansas City Royals. Royals closer Wade Davis, who had to sit through a 41-minute rain delay, escaped after the tying run reached third with nobody out in the top of the ninth, retiring Josh Donaldson on a ground ball to third to end it.
But by then not everything was lost for Toronto Blue Rays by then. Bautistaâ€™s second homer of the game and fourth of the playoffs, a two-run shot to left off Ryan Madson, tied the game 3-3 in the eighth and breathed new life into the Blue Jays when they were five outs away from getting vanquished. They had won four elimination games before Friday.
There is no denying the fact that it was very disappointing for Blue Jay team and many of their fans. To be true it was actually a frustrating ending to a late-season surge that ended their own postseason drought dating to 1993. They had rallied from a 2-0 series deficit against Texas in the divisional round, then staved off elimination against the Royals in Game 5 in Toronto.
After the loss and elimination Toronto Blue Rays manager John Gibbons said â€œThey made a run at itâ€¦I really couldn’t be more proud of our guys. They laid it out every day. They’re great competitors and a fun bunch.â€
