The red-hot Royals are in the Big Apple for Game Three of the World Series. The Mets are worried. They’ve got to win four games or the Royals will be the next World Champs.
The first pitch will be at 8:07 PM ET. The game will be carried on the big FOX.
The boys from Kansas City are sluggers. In the 23 innings that comprised the first two games of the series, the Royals have struck out just ten times. The Mets have gone out on strikes a total of nineteen times. Frankly, their offense didn’t do much damage at Kauffman Stadium.
The Mets’ old home, Shea Stadium, had a big red mechanical Home Run Apple that would pop up from its hiding place in center field. When Shea was razed in 2008, the apple was moved next door to Citi Field. The Royals need strong showings from Alex Gordon, Mike Moustakas and Eric Hosmer against Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard and a bit of help from Royals pitcher Yordano Ventura to extend the combined 0 for 12 plate appearances of Wright, Duda and Cespedes to keep that apple from popping up.
The New York Post’s Mike Vaccaro believes Royals’ manager Ned Yost is going to run out of “pixie dust” at Citi Field. Hold on there buddy. Ned worked with Bobby Cox, a Hall of Famer, and one of the greatest managers in baseball. Pixie dust doesn’t win ball games. Ned’s players remember playing 162 games last year only to lose the 2014 World Series in Game 7. The Royals are on a mission.
TAKE THE CROWN!
