2015 World Series: Game 5
Hosmer's mad dash
Kansas City vs New York
7 - 2
1 November, 2015
After narrowly missing out on a title in 2014, the Royals took care of business in five games this time, launching another breathtaking rally to tie the Mets in the ninth inning and then disposing of them with a five-run outburst in the 12th to secure a 7-2 win in Game 5 on Sunday night at Citi Field, grabbing their first World Series championship since 1985. The Royals, down 2-0 in the ninth, began to put together their record eighth come-from-behind victory this postseason. Cain walked and stole second against Mets starter Matt Harvey, who had been virtually unhittable for eight innings. Then, Hosmer rifled a run-scoring double off the wall, and Mets manager Terry Collins went to closer Jeurys Familia, who induced a Mike Moustakas groundout that moved Hosmer to third.Then the Royals pulled off yet another one of their trademark daring plays: Salvador Perez sent a chopper to third baseman David Wright, who looked back Hosmer then threw to first to get the second out. As soon as Wright released the ball, Hosmer broke for home. A good throw to the plate by first baseman Lucas Duda likely would have ended the game with a double play, but the ball sailed wide and to the backstop and the game was tied, 2-2.
1992 Regular Season
The 3,000 Club
Kansas City vs California
4 - 0
30 September, 1992
George Brett, Kansas City's greatest ever player. Playing his entire career with the team, he led KC to a World Series and many notable wins. When he earned his place in the 3,000 club he established himself as not only a KC great, but a baseball great.
2014 Wild Card Game
A Wild Game
Kansas City vs Oakland
9 - 8
30 September, 2014
Trailing 7-3 in the 8th, it seemed KC had no chance of winning. As fate would have it, the game was tied in the 9th and then, having given up a run in the top of the 12th, scored twice in the bottom to advance to the ALDS and spark a run that led all the way to the World Series. It was magical.
1985 World Series: Game 6
We go to a 7!
Kansas City vs St. Louis
2 - 1
26 October, 1985
Game 6 facing elimination in the bottom of the 9th. Kansas City was able to load up the bases and Iorg hit a looping single to right field driving in not only the tying run, but also a second winning run. Kansas City would dominate Game 7 in anti-climatic fashion, winning their first World Series.
