World Series Game Four

Game four of the World Series was close to the wire and it another back and forth struggle that was scoreless until the bottom of the third inning.   Michael Conforto hit a home run to give the Mets a 1-0 lead, and  Curtis Granderson drove in Wilmer Flores on a sacrifice fly to give them a 2-0 lead.   The Royals cut the lead to one on a Alex Gordon single scoring Salvador Perez in the top of the fifth inning.  Then in the bottom of the inning Conforto hit his second home run of the game to give the Mets a 3-1 lead.   The Royals cut the lead again to one on a Lorenzo Cain single scoring Ben Zobrist in the top of the sixth inning.   Then the Royals took the lead in the top of the eighth inning, and it was started an error by Daniel Murphy that scored Zobrist,  Mike Moustakas got a base hit scoring Cain to give the Royals a 4-3 lead, and Perez got a single scoring Eric Hosmer to give them a 5-3 lead.   Wade Davis got the last six outs and gave the Royals a comeback win, and 3 games to 1 series lead.  The New York Mets are learning the hard way that you did not make errors against the Kansas City Royals.   The last team that came back from a 3-1 World Series deficit was the 1985 Royals against the St. Louis Cardinals.   If the Mets can do it, Matt Harvey has to win game five and he will take on the Royals Edinson Volquez.  First pitch for game five at Citi Field is set for 8:00 P.M.
