Royals take Game One of the World Series

Listen to this article

Game One of the 2015 World Series started on a sad note. The father of Royals starter Edinson Volquez passed away earlier in the day so the mood was somber for the Royals during the team introductions.

When the teams took the field Tuesday Night it was Edinson Volquez for the Royals on the mound. Matt Harvey took the mound for the Mets.

Can the Royals contain Daniel Murphy? They need to if they are going to win the series. But the K.C. pitching is much improved from last year and their bats can hit just as well as New York’s.

Can the Mets pitchers slow down the Royals line up? Kansas City came so close last year they will do everything to win it this year.

Tuesday’s game became the longest Game One in World Series history: five hours and nine minutes. It was a close game all night as it went to 14 innings.

Past TimeIn the end it was a sacrifice fly from Eric Hosmer, who committed an error earlier in the game, that scored Alcidas Escobar for the winning run.

The big hero for the Royals would be Chris Young, who pitched the last three innings without giving up a run. And then Alex Gordon, who tied up the game in the bottom of the ninth to send the game to extra innings.
