Royals rally in 8th, beat Mets to take 3-1 lead

(AP) -- The Kansas City Royals rallied for three runs in the eighth inning after second baseman Daniel Murphy's error and startled the New York Mets 5-3 Saturday night for a 3-1 lead in the World Series.



The Royals posted their seventh postseason comeback win this October. Now, one more victory in November will clinch their first crown since 1985.



Edinson Volquez, who pitched Game 1 for Kansas City only hours after his father died, has returned from the funeral and will start Game 5 Sunday night. Matt Harvey starts for the Mets.



Mets rookie Michael Conforto hit two home runs, and a sellout crowd kept getting louder and louder on Halloween night. But the fans at Citi Field gasped, then went silent after Murphy's misplay.



Murphy let Eric Hosmer's grounder go under his glove with one out, allowing the tying run to score. Mike Moustakas and Salvador Perez followed with RBI singles.
