The Kansas City Royals scored two runs in the top of the ninth to tie it up, then added five in the twelfth to beat the Mets 7-2 in Game 5 of the World Series last night. With the win, the Royals are the champions, four games to one.
It is the second title for KC, following one that they won in 1985.
Curtis Granderson homered in the bottom of the first for the Mets, and the Mets added another run in the sixth. Matt Harvey was shutting down KC. All seemed good for the Mets as far as surviving the night.
But in the ninth, Harvey faltered and KC tied it up.
Then came the five-run outburst in the 12th, Lorenzo Cain capping it with a bases-loaded 3-run double.
Catcher Salvador Perez was named WS MVP.
