The Kansas City Royals are your 2015 World Series champions.

Though the Mets struck first during Sunday’s Game 5 in New York, KC rallied to put two on the board in the top of the ninth and send the game into extra innings.


The contest marks the first time a World Series has had two extra-innings games since the Diamondbacks stunned the Yankees back in 2001.

Royals infielder Christian Colon — in what was his first at-bat of the 2015 postseason — gave KC the lead in the 12th by singling in Jarrod Dyson. The Royals would go on to add five more runs in the 12th, eventually winning Game 5 by a final score of 7-2.

Catcher Salvador Perez was named World Series MVP but was spared the embarrassment of having to talk to Rikk Wilde following the game. (VIDEO: ‘Technology And Stuff’ — Chevy Guy Delivers Cringeworthy World Series MVP Speech)
