World Series discussion thread: Game Two

New, 67 comments

After playing one of the wackiest World Series games of all time, the Mets and Royals are going to try to keep the entertainment going in Game Two of the 2015 Fall Classic.

So, last night was a totally boring and ho-hum affair of a game, right? It seems like everything normal and boring that could happen in a World Series game did. The Royals started their offensive attack with a leadoff inside-the-park home run. FOX's truck lost power and the game was delayed for a little bit because no TV equals absolute anarchy these days. The Mets seemingly had the game won until Alex Gordon and the Royals did waht the Royals do best in the Postseason, and that's snatch victory from the ice-cold clutches of defeat. Gordon's dramatic ninth-inning homer ended up extending the game until the wee hours of the night.

That's when Eric Hosmer sent the Kansas City faithful home happy with a walk-off sac fly. He also flipped the bat after doing so, which has to be the first time in World Series history where a guy flipped a bat after hitting a sacrifice fly. So yeah, a completely normal, totally-not-special 14-inning baseball game. Woopty doo.

Now, we get to see if the Mets and Royals can top what they finished earlier this morning. I expect there to be a bit of a letdown when it comes to entertainment and drama, but knowing how this entire baseball season has been, I still wouldn't be surprised if these two teams decided to take us on another emotional rollercoaster. We'll have to see.

Anyways, we'd love it if you stayed awhile in this little internet bar of ours and discussed the game here. You'll be with Braves fans, and everybody loves us, so you're in the right place to be.
