World Series Game 5: Game Thread

New, 97 comments

This is the biggest game of the year because it could be the last.

Jeff Curry-USA TODAY Sports

The New York Mets now face elimination. The Royals have a 3-1 series lead so tonight could be the final game of the 2015 World Series. The Mets would have to win three games in a row to snatch victory away from Kansas City. That seems pretty unlikely at this point. But it's baseball and things like that do happen. That's why we watch.

Kansas City Royals at New York Mets: 7:15 pm CST
