As October ends, so is the New York Mets and Murphy’s incredible month.  The Mets lost 5-3 to the Kansas City Royals, after second base Daniel Murphy’s error in the eighth inning.

The Mets were leading the game, after rookie Michael Conforto homered twice, and they got help from right fielder Alex Rios, who lost track of the outs on a sacrifice fly.

The Mets lost their chance to tie the Series, and the Royals did what they do best, come back from a deficit.

“We certainly talked about it before. They truly don’t ever stop,” Mets manager Terry Collins said.

The decisive play came with two runners on first and second on a pair of one-out walks.

Jeurys Familia came on with a 3-2 lead, allowing Eric Hosmer to hit a soft grounder toward Murphy, and just when fans were ready to celebrate a double play and the end of the game, the ball escaped under the glove of the National League Championship Series MVP as he charged in. After this the ball continues rolling toward right field, and Ben Zobrist did not hesitate and ran from second base towards home.

“There’s no way to describe it. It hurts when you feel like you got a direct hand in a ballgame,” Murphy said. “I didn’t do the job. That’s the most frustrating thing.”

After this Mike Moustakas and Salvador Perez followed with RBI singles.

“Hoz did a good job of putting the ball in play and make some things happen,” Moustakas said. “It’s just kind of how the ball bounced today. It kind of rolled right for us.”

Yoenis Cespedes hit a single, but it didn’t help much after he was doubled off first base, when Lucas Duda’s easy liner to third, allowed Moustakas to toss it to first, and the Royals finished off an incredible comeback.

“This game will show you something new every day,” Danny Duffy said. “I feel like I’ve said that about a thousand times this postseason and it’s what makes this game beautiful. It’s what makes this game great. We find ways to win however we can.”

This game was filled with surprises, Conforto had become the first rookie to connect twice in the World Series since Andruw Jones with the Atlanta Braves did it at Yankee Stadium in 1996.
