The New York Mets look to even the World Series with a game two win versus Kansas City.
The Kansas City Royals are still in the driver’s seat in the World Series despite having their lead sliced to 2-1 following a 9-3 loss to the Mets at Citi Field. Not much went their way with both the arms and bats struggling. Starter Yordano Ventura was charged with five runs on seven hits over 3.1 frames before Franklin Morales gave up four runs in 1/3 of an inning to put this one out of reach. The Kc attack produced seven hits and a pair of BB with Alex Rios driving in a run and scoring while Eric Hosmer drove in a run. The Royals turn to Chris Young for his second start of the postseason. Young did not get a decision in a 14-2 win at the Blue Jays with a pair of runs allowed on three hits and two BB in 4.2 frames.

The New York Mets are known more for their ability on the mound then at the plate but their offense took center stage in game two. The pitching was still fantastic with starter Noah Syndergaard allowing all three runs on seven hits and two free passes through six innings with three relievers not allowing a runner. The Mets pounded out 12 hits and walked once with David Wright going deep and driving in four while Curtis Granderson left the yard and knocked in two while scoring three times. Rookie Steven Matz makes his third start of the postseason in game four against Kansas City. In two prior starts Matz has given up four runs on four hits and four BB over 9.2 innings.
Kansas City are 13-3 in their last 16 games on grass and the over is 8-2-1 in their last 11 Saturday games while the Royals are 8-2 in their last 10 overall. The over is 10-3 in New York’s last 13 interleague games and the under is 16-5-1 in their last 22 playoff home games while the Mets are 14-6 in their last 20 playoff home games. The Mets need this one bad but I think we’ll see more scoring….
