Royals Edge Mets in Epic World Series Opener
Last night’s whopping 14-inning contest — the longest Game 1 in World Series history — saw K.C. finally put away New York 5-4 after five hours and nine minutes. The teams matched runs and expert pitching throughout, but after Alex Gordon tied it with a homer in the ninth, neither side could break the deadlock, dragging out the drama for five more rounds before Eric Hosmer’s sacrifice fly clinched it. The Mets hope to even the score when they take the field in Kansas City again tonight.
