World Series Game 3: Game Recap, Stats & Highlights

Mets Win Oct 30 World Series

Going into Game 3 of the 2015 World Series and down 2-0 in the series against the Kansas City Royals, the New York Mets needed a big outing from Noah Syndergaard on the mound and for their bats to wake up after going into a slumber during Game 2. Syndergaard struggled early on but the New York bats did wake up enough to make it a series again with a 9-3 win at Citi Field to pull within 2-1 in the best-of-7 affair.

Kansas City would get on the board first however in the opening inning on an Eric Hosmer groundout but unlike other nights, the Mets would respond. David Wright cranked out a two-run homer off Royals starter Yordano Ventura in the bottom of the first and it was a 2-1 game. After the Royals responded with two of their own in the second inning to retake the lead, Curtis Granderson put New York back on top with a two-run home run. Granderson would score three times for the game from his leadoff spot. Michael Conforto added a RBI in the fourth inning, the Mets had a 5-3 lead and knocked Ventura out before the inning was over.
The Royals would load the bases in the sixth inning against Syndergaard but Alex Rios grounded out to end the inning and the threat. In the bottom of the inning, the Mets broke the game wide open with four runs including a two-run single by Wright to give him four RBI for the game. Syndergaard finished with six strikeouts over his six innings of work to get the win for the Mets. Ventura went 3 1/3 innings and gave up five runs in the process.
Game 4 will be Saturday night at Citi Field again with Chris Young starting for the Royals against Steven Matz for the Mets. Game time is 8:07 p.m. Eastern/7:07 p.m. Central time as New York takes to even the series at two games apiece.
