KANSAS CITY Jeimer Candelario Jersey , Mo. Eventually, it seems, the Royals get to everybody in October.Well, not Madison Bumgarner, of course. But the Mets dont have use of San Franciscos big lefty, so theyre in trouble. They do have Jacob deGrom, and for four masterful innings of Game 2, he looked like he was set on doing a pretty good Bumgarner impre sion.MORE: World Series in photos | Dale Jr. pulling for RoyalsHe didnt allow a hit through three innings, and though a leadoff error helped Kansas City load the bases in the fourth, New Yorks long-hairedright-hander got through Miguel Cabrera Cool Base White Jersey that inning unscathed. The Mets still led1-0heading into the fifth.And thats when the Royals did that thing the Royals do at home in the playoffs.Alex Gordon, who just might be the best No. 8 hitter in postseason history, led off the frame with a walk, and Alex Rios followed with a single.Leadoff man Alcides Escobar failed to put down a sacrifice bunt, but that turned up KC, too, because he wound up singling up the middle to drive home Gordon with the tying run.Feel like Escobars at bat there is a pretty good illustration of these Royals. Sam Mellinger (@mellinger) October 29, 2015Ben Zobrist grounded out on a sharply hit ball to first Mikie Mahtook Jersey baseman Lucas Duda, which moved Rios and Escobar up to second and third.After Lorenzo Cain lined out to shallow center Rios bluffed, but didnt try to score for Kirk Gibson 1984 Practice Navy Jersey the second out, Eric Hosmer drilled a single up the middle, scoring Rios and Escobar to give the Royals a 3-1 lead.Kendrys Morales singled to move Hosmer to third, and then Mike Moustakas singled to chase home Hosmer for a 4-1 lead.In his three previous postseason starts, Jacob deGrom had allowed 6 hits or fewer in each OUTING. Surrendered 5 hits in that INNING. Adam Rubin (@AdamRubinESPN) October 29, 2015The inning was so very Royals.They didnt record anything close to an extra-base hit. They didnt swing for the fences. They Kansas Cityd deGrom out of the game. His final line: fiveinnings (playoff worst), six hits (ties playoff worst), four earned runs (he'd allowed only four in 20 playoff innings, total), two strikeouts (playoff worst Daniel Norris Jersey ), three walks (ties playoff worst).That's what the Royals do.
