Who won World Series Game One: results, score and analysis
Many had predocted that New York Mets will easily beat Kansas City Royals in the World Series Game One. But opposite happened. It is altogether a different matter if it took an eternity for Royals to win the game.
The people who keep track of records have suggested that it wad the longest ever World Series Game One that was decided in as many as 14 innings. It must be added here that Kansas City Royals were plain lucky to edge out New York Mets 5-4.
The game will remain etched in the minds of fans of both the teamd. It actually lasted five hours and nine minutes.Â With the bases loaded and nobody out, Eric Hosmer hit a sacrifice fly to right off 42-year-old reliever Bartolo Colon to score Alcides Escobar and end an enthralling start to the Major League Baseball championship.
The ferocity that was visible during the game is without doubt promising for the game. Escobar reached first on an error by third baseman David Wright and advanced to third on a single to right by Ben Zobrist. After an intentional walk to Lorenzo Cain, Hosmer hit the long fly to right that set off a celebration on the diamond.
Following the game Hosmer said,Â “I wanted to redeem myself from earlier…That’s the beauty of this game. You always have a chance to redeem yourself.”
