KANSAS CITY (AP) — - It took 5 hours, 9 minutes to decide the longest World Series opener ever, but the Kansas City Royals outlasted the New York Mets 5-4 in 14 innings. Eric Hosmer hit a sacrifice fly that scored Alcides Escobar from third base to end it. Much earlier, Escobar had hit an inside-the-park home run on the first pitch from Mets starter Matt Harvey.
With that long game behind them from last night, the Mets and Royals turn their attention to this evening's second game of the World Series. Tonight's pitching matchup has Jacob deGrom going for the Mets against Johnny Cueto.
The first pitch for game two is at 8:07 p.m. on FOX 46 WJZY.
