Royals beat Mets to win first World Series since 1985

NEW YORK: The Kansas City Royals snapped a 30-year World Series title drought Sunday by defeating the New York Mets 7-2 in 12 innings to capture the best-of-seven Major League Baseball final four games to one.

Trailing 2-0 in the ninth inning, the Royals rallied to equalize and broke open the game with five runs in the final inning, staking their claim as the greatest comeback kings in major league playoff history.

The Royals won a major league record seven playoff games in come-from-behind fashion, including all four of their World Series triumphs.

The Mets were foiled in their bid for their first World Series crown since 1986.
