ALCS between Toronto and Kansas City begins tonight at 7:30 P.M. in Kansas City. Toronto led the majors in home runs and Kansas City struck out fewer times than anyone else and were second in the American League in stolen bases. Toronto will need to get the Royals behind early on the scoreboard and get into the bullpen. They will also need to keep Royals runners close to the bag.

Kansas City 6 Toronto 3. Kansas City takes advantage of a defensive lapse by Toronto to start a five run rally in the seventh inning. Ben Zobirst lead off with a flyball that dropped between second baseman Ryan Goins and right fielder Jose Bautista - a play Goins called for when he should have let Bautista make the play. The Royals had trailed 3-0 and Toronto starter David Price had set down 18 straight batters. The Blue Jays compounded their problem squandering a bases loaded one out chance in the sixth and a two on out chance in the ninth.

New York Mets 4 Chicago Cubs 1. Noah Syndergaard combines with four relievers to shut down the Cubs on five hits. Chicago got its only run in the sixth on an RBI double but were unable to get runners on base consistently. Daniel Murphy sat on a 1-2 curveball that got inside the rightfield foul pole for a two run shot in the first inning. New York leads the series 2-0.

New York Mets 8 Chicago Cubs 3. Once again, the Cubs get shut down on six hits as the Mets send them home for the season. Jason Hammels got only four outs and was charged with five runs on four hits, two of them fastballs that reached the seats in the first inning accounting for four runs. Chicago could only manage one leadoff hit in the series and would strand four runners in the fourth and fifth innings, three in scoring position. The four game sweep was the first for the Mets in franchise history.

Kansas City 5 New York 4, 14 innings. Defensive lapses, stolen bases, the longball, and the bullpen prove vital in the longest Game 1 in World Series history. Alcides Escobar took advantage of defensive breakdown by centerfielder Yoenis Cespedes and left fielder Michael Conforto who overran his drive into leftcenter for an inside the park home run. It was the first such hit in the World Series since 1929 by George "Mule" Haas of the Philadelphia Athletics against the Cubs. The Royals tied the game at 3-3 in the sixth on a single by Lorenzo Cain, a steal of second which eliminated the possibility of a 1-6-3 doubleplay on bouncer back to the mound, and a single.

A two out single in the top of the eighth, a stolen base, and bouncing ball booted by Hosmer gave the Mets a 4-3 lead. Alex Gordon bludgeoned a hanging sinkerball over the centerfield fence in the ninth to send the game to extra innings. A throwing error by the Mets' third baseman, a single, and an intentional walk set the stage for Hosmer. Kansas City's bullpen shut down the Mets over the final six innings, though the Mets had a first and second chance in the 11th. Kansas City leads the series 1-0.

Kansas City 7 New York 1. Johnny Cueto shuts down the Mets on one run and two hits, but issued three walks. One of those came around to score. Mets face a team that posted the fewest strikeouts in the majors and their ability to make contact is proving to be the difference so far. Jacob De Grom was unable to put away hitters after getting two strikes and apparently was not making adjustments.
