In a weird and wacky Game 1 of the 2015 World Series, with one swing of the bat Curtis Granderson gave the New York Mets a 2-1 lead.

Game 1 of the 2015 World Series has already seen almost everything. Literally.

The game lead-off with an inside-the-park home run thanks to a combination of Alcides Escobar flying through the base-paths and Yoenis Cespedes doing his best “short-arm” wide receiver impression.

Then, Fox Sports seemingly lost communication with the entire world. Viewers at home were left with Dontrelle Willis and company uttering useless words to us.

The most regular part about the game came by way of Curtis Granderson, who smashed a clutch, solo home run in the top of the fifth-inning to give his New York Mets the 2-1 lead.


In the next inning Cespedes scored on a Michael Conforto sac-fly in which he challenged the Gold-Glove arm of Alex Gordon in right field. We currently sit at 3-1 Mets with the Royals challenging Matt Harvey in the bottom of the sixth-inning.
