In case you missed it, the Royals turned the tables on the Mets last night in extra innings and took home the title for best team 2015. After a dominating start by Matt Harvey who went 8 innings, gave up 5 hits, and two runs (Both of which came in the 9th). The Royals were able to tie the game due to a very risky and ill advised advancement by Eric Hosmer, who was able to score due to an error on the throw by Lucas Duda. Duda was not officially charged with an error, but I’ve always felt they are a little too forgiving when assigning errors. The game remained tied until the Royals were able to bust out for five runs in the top of the 12th. Again, the strength of the Royals bullpen showed up as they went 6 innings giving up just two hits and one walk for yet another Royals come from behind victory.
Congratulations to the Royals and their fans. Hopefully now that they’ve finally won something, they will be a little more tolerable next year. Oh who am I kidding. Probably not.
