The Kansas City Royals won the world series against the New York Mets in a series of epic comebacks. They were behind in each of the games! In game #4, they were down to their last four outs, but ended up winning the game. In game #5, they were down to their last three outs–completely shut out in a brilliant pitching performance by Matt Harvey–but they scored two to tie it, going on to score seven runs in the 12th inning for the series victory. The Royals were relentless and never quit, so they are the World Champions.
