Royals win Game 1

Coming in a bit: The proper way to order burnt ends from Arthur Bryant's.
In the meantime, Game 1 from NBC SportsWorld:
The Royals lost it and lost it, but in the end, as, the video board boomed, “Royals WIN!” because … well … they did. There’s a story about Stanley Ketchel, a staggeringly tough early 20th century boxer who was murdered a few hours up the road in a farm town called Conway, Mo. When his manager and New York man-about-town Billy Mizner was told that Ketchel had been killed, he shrugged. “Tell ‘em to start counting to 10,” Mizner said. “He’ll get up.”
So it goes with these Royals. They kept losing the game but every time the Mets started counting to 10 … the Royals got up.
