Kansas City Royals Returning to World Series

Party like its 2014! The Kansas City Royals are bringing the World Series to Kansas City once more after defeating the Toronto Blue Jays 4-3 Friday night and winning back-to-back American League Championship Series. The pennant will rise!

 

 

From two fantastic home runs by infielders Ben Zobrist and Mike Moustakas at the bottom of the first and second innings and multiple pitcher replacements, to Bautista’s ridiculous home-run, a short rain delay and Wade Davis striking out Toronto in the ninth, this series was one to not be forgotten.

 

 

Fans from around the KC metro filled up popular locales like the Power and Light District, Westport and the many sports bars to watch the boys in blue in action. Cheers were heard citywide as they watched their team hold up the ALCS trophy.

 

 

There were several exciting moments throughout the game, but the most memorable would have to be Cain’s winning run in the eighth inning., Soon after the game resumed from the rain delay, tied 3-3, Lorenzo Cain flew from first to home base with blazing speed giving the Royals the lead. After Wade Davis pitched his way out of a jam in the ninth, the Royals took the game. This win made Kansas City the first team since 2011 to win back-to-back pennants.

 

 

Infielder Alcides Escobar won Most Valuable Player of the series and stole the heart of millions when his toddler son Massi, whom he was celebrating with post-game, took the microphone from the Fox reporter and said s timid “hi” to the fans.

 

 

Meeting for the first time in the Fall Classic, the Royals will go against the New York Mets, who recently swept the Chicago Cubs in four games for the National League Championship Series and clinched their first pennant in 15 years. I guess Marty’s prediction the Cubs would win it all this year was wrong. To kick off the series, the Royals will host the Mets at Kauffman Stadium.
