Last year, the Cinderella story ended early for the Kansas City Royals, as they were beaten by the San Francisco Giants in the World Series. They fought to the seventh game of the World Series, but couldn’t quite bring it home. Call it practice for this season. The Kansas City Royals topped the New York Mets 4 games to 1 to claim the 2015 World Series. The New York Mets just didn’t have the ability to close out the games they were leading, and they had plenty of opportunities to put the Royals away; they just couldn’t finish it.
“From Day One, there was no doubt in my mind that they wouldn’t accomplish it. There was no doubt in their mind that they wouldn’t accomplish it,” Royals manager Ned Yost said. “It’s just a special, special group that doesn’t come around very often. I couldn’t have written a better script.”
Indeed, the Royals were the team of destiny it seems. They are the first World Series winners since the 2002 Angels to have come-back wins in all four of their World Series wins. In the last game they needed a last-minute score to make it to extra innings, and in the twelfth inning they went scoring-crazy, ripping off five runs to win 7-2.
