Royals Win 2015 World Series
After just missing Major League Baseball's ultimate prize one year ago, the Kansas City Royals won a World Series ring in five games. It's their first Series win since 1985.
The Royals became the first team to win all four games with 'come-from-behind' victories. It was also their record eighth come-from-behind win this MLB Postseason.
Down 2-0 when in the 9th inning, KC scored two runs in the top of the ninth to force a 2-2 tie game into extra innings. A five-run 12th inning secured the win in Game 5 and the MLB championship rings.
Salvador Perez won the World Series Most Valuable Player Award. The 25-year-old catcher hit .364 (8 for 22) with two doubles and two RBI. He also played in every inning except for the final one. After hitting safely in the 12th inning of Game 5, he was replaced by manager Ned Yost for pinch-runner Jarrod Dyson.
The Royals will return to Kansas City and celebrate with a 2.3-mile victory parade on Tuesday. The team's championship parade is scheduled to begin at 12:00 PM-CT and will run through downtown Kansas City, MO.
