deaths were down from 133 last year.

Members of the Kansas City Royals hoist up the Commissioner's Trophy on the field after defeating the New York Mets in the 2015
World Series at Citi Field yesterday.
Kansas City ended a 30-year wait
for a World Series title as the Royals
reigned over Major League Baseball
with a 7-2, 12-inning victory over the
New York Mets yesterday.
A pinch-hit single by utility infielder
Christian Colon scored the go-ahead
run off reliever Addison Reed in the
12th and the Royals added four more
runs in the inning as they captured the
best-of-seven series 4-1 .
The visitors swarmed into the middle
of the diamond in the hushed Citi
Field stadium for a celebration by the
mound where closer Wade Davis had
struck out the side to end it.
Catcher Salvador Perez was named
Most Valuable Player of the Series
after batting .364 with two RBIs,
three runs scored and a .391 on-
base average, and expertly handling
a pitching staff that more than held
their own against the vaunted Mets
“It is unbelievable we feel like a
family here and we knew we were
going to do something special this
year, I felt it in spring training,” Perez
“Now I don’t feel pain, I don’t feel
nothing. I am ready to celebrate.”
The Royals’ triumph was all the
sweeter coming after their agonizing
Game Seven loss in last year’s World
Series to the San Francisco Giants
and a large contingent of blue-shirted
Royals supporters crowded around
their dugout to share in the joy.
“The heart, the desire, and their
competitiveness and their character
showed through every single game,”
Kansas City manager Ned Yost said
about his players.
It marked Kansas City’s first Fall
Classic crown since their 1985
triumph against cross-state rivals the
St Louis Cardinals.
The Kansas City comeback kids
trailed 2-0 heading into the ninth but
rallied to tie the game, ruining the
shutout bid of starter Matt Harvey
and handing closer Jeurys Familia his
third blown save of the series.
At the end of eighth, the crowd
chanted “Harvey! Har vey!” hoping to
see him come out to pitch the ninth,
and the Mets ace ended the suspense
when the bearded 26-year-old ran
from the dugout to the mound to Citi
Har vey, who had dueled with Royals
starter Edinson Volquez in the tense
battle, walked leadoff hitter Lorenzo
Cain, who promptly stole second base.
Eric Hosmer followed with a line-
drive double to left that scored Cain to
make it 2-1.
Mets manager Terry Collins then
called in Familia, who was charged
with blown saves in game one and
Familia got Moustakas to ground out
to first as Hosmer raced to third. Perez
hit a grounder to third baseman David
Wright, who bluffed Hosmer back
toward the bag before throwing on to
first base for the out.
As soon as Wright released the ball,
Hosmer broke for home and first
baseman Lucas D uda’s throw to the
plate came in wide as Hosmer slid in
safely to tie the game.
The title-clinching victory was
Kansas City ’s remarkable eighth
come-from-behind win of the post-
“ What they accomplished this year
was nothing less than spectacular and
very, very special,” manager Yost
“They just don’t quit, they ’ve got a lot
of heart, they ’ve got a lot of character
and they never think they are going to
Mets manager Terry Collins was
gracious in defeat.
“I congratulate the Royals. They
played absolutely great,” Collins said.
“ We couldn’t get it done, and we’re
hoping to get another chance at it. I
just told he players, I’ve done this for
a long, long time and this is the most
fun I’ve ever had in all the years,” said
Collins, who at age 66 is the oldest
manager in the majors.
“I’m very, very proud of them.”

Dylan Walker’s future at South
Sydney is now even murkier, with the
representative centre reportedly issued
with a show cause notice over his role in
September’s drug overdose.
The four-time Australian representative
was rushed to hospital alongside winger
Aaron Gray on September 22 after taking
a dangerous cocktail of prescription drugs.
The NRL immediately launched an
investigation into the incident and now
the Rabbitohs have requested that the
21-year-old faces the board to explain his
role in the night, according to Nine News.
It is believed the toxicology report of the
pair will confirm no illicit substances were
taken, instead showing Walker and Gray
dangerously mixed three prescription
Endone and tramadol.
Walker is already reportedly on the
outer at Redfern, with recent reports
linking him with a move to Manly in
order for the Rabbitohs to potentially
make room for Sam Burgess.
The South Sydney junior has scored 32
tries in 61 games for the club and was a
key member of their 2014 premiership
victory. — AAP
Cash-strapped NRL clubs could be
lured into committing to the league long
term after embattled ARL Commission
chairman John Grant reportedly
promised a $3 million pay day for each
It comes with a catch though: the
$1.5m-a -year deal over two seasons only
stands if they sign their competition
participation agreements according to
News Corp Australia. If they do not, the
cash payout becomes a repayable loan.
Tensions between the clubs and the
NRL reached boiling point last week
when a club chairmen described a
meeting between five other club bosses
and Grant as “ backwards”.
Clubs are desperate for extra funding,
and their frustrations with the NRL
have led to rumours of a breakaway
league being formed by the clubs.
As a result, all 16 clubs have agreed not
to sign any NRL agreements until their
requests are met.
However, the combined $48m cash
offer might be just too good to resist
for struggling clubs. Not all club
powerbrokers are necessarily impressed
though. One chairman labelled it as a
“sugar hit” and Grant ’s way of “buying
Another said: “ The $3m is a catch-up
payment from the past. All the money
from the last broadcast deal effectively
went straight to the players.
“Clubs have been the victims from the
last deal because we have had serious
inflationary pressure on coaching staff
and other costs, which we have had no
money to cover. ”
