The Kansas City Royals are one victory away from winning the 2015 World Series crown. For the second time this series, they orchestrated a late rally to upend the New York Mets, extending their lead to 3-1.

New York entered the eighth inning up 3-2, but Kansas City drew two walks off Tyler Clippard before a costly Daniel Murphy error squandered the lead. Two more hits off closer Jeurys Familia extended the edge to 5-3, which held up as the final score.

Steven Matz, who started the season in Single-A, threw five stunning innings. But the rookie pitcher coughed up a second run in the sixth inning, the furthest he has pitched this postseason. Michael Conforto, who also started the season in Single-A, belted two homers that went to waste.

The Royals continued to chip away with nine hits, including Ben Zobrist's fourth double of the series. Exclaimed by a two-out save from Wade Davis, the bullpen quieted the Mets to one run through five frames. They can now finish the series Sunday night. 

FINAL: Royals 5, Mets 3

Royals Lead Series 3-1
