The Kansas City Royals won their first World Series in 30 years Sunday night, in an extra-innings comeback victory over the New York Mets.

The Royals headed into Sunday's matchup at Citi Field with a 3-games-to-1 lead over the Mets, but quickly fell behind and were down 2-0 heading into the top of the ninth inning. They tied the game thanks to RBIs from first baseman Eric Hosmer and catcher Salvador Perez, sending it into extra innings, and scored five runs in the 12th to win the championship 7-2.

Perez, who hit a leadoff single in the 12th inning in addition to tying the game in the ninth, was named the MVP of the series.
