Royals win World Series, rally late, then rout Mets in 12th
The daring Royals capped their postseason full of comebacks with a dash for the ages, and made up for last year’s near-miss in a Game 7 loss to San Francisco.
Hosmer’s alert sprint home from third base on a grounder finished off a two-run burst in the ninth against Matt Harvey and closer Jeurys Familia.
Then in the 12th, pinch-hitter Christian Colon delivered a tiebreaking single in his first appearance of this postseason. Lorenzo Cain added a three-run double
Royals starter Edinson Volquez threw two-hit ball for six innings. He pitched a day after returning from his father’s funeral in the Dominican Republic.
