Sunday night at Citi Field, Matt Harvey took the mound, vintage Harvey. It was The Dark Knight vs. Edinson Volquez. But in a marathon that went 12 innings, an RBI single by Christian Colon in the top of the 12th inning snapped a 2 all tie. The Kansas City Royals become the 2015 World Champions as they beat the Mets 7-2. The Mets took the lead in the bottom of the first when Curtis Granderson, tied a Met record with 3 homers in a single World Series hitting a 2 strike change up over the right field wall and a 1-0. Granderson ties the record set by Donn Clendenon in the 1969 series. In the 6th the Mets got on the board again. Granderson walked. David Wright singled and Daniel Murphy reached on an error by Eric Hosmer to load the bases. After Yoenis Cespedes crippled himself fouling a pitch off his knee, he popped out. Lucas Duda followed with a sac-fly to center to make it 2-0. Cespedes left the game following the injury and was replaced by Juan Lagares. Matt Harvey had a shutout through 8 tossing 102 pitches. But, by overwhelming Citi Field demand Harvey started the 9th and walked Alcides Escobar and then allowed a RBI double by Eric Hosmer to make it 2-1.
