Johnny Cueto, Royals Put Mets in 2-0 Hole with Game Two Victory

Cueto: Complete Game W
Player of the Day for Wednesday, October 28, 2015

World Series

Having taken game one in a marathon 14-inning, 5-4 win, the Kansas City Royals put the Mets into a two-games-to-none hole with a 7-1 victory in game two.

The Mets scored first, picking up a run off Johnny Cueto in the top of the fourth inning, but the Royals responded with four runs off Jacob deGrom in the bottom of the fifth, adding three more in the eighth to complete the scoring.

Meanwhile, Cueto proved practically untouchable, allowing just two hits while going the distance. Cueto didn't allow a hit after the fourth inning, setting down 15 in a row before yielding a walk to Daniel Murphy with two down in the ninth. Walking three and fanning four, Cueto earned his first World Series victory. Mets' starter, deGrom took the loss.

The series shifts to New York for games three, four, and, if necessary, game five. Game three is scheduled for an 8:07 pm ET start on Friday.
