New York Mets

After losing Game 1 of the World Series in heartbreaking fashion, the New York Mets will lean on ace Jacob deGrom in Game 2.

When things seem to be at its darkest is when, and only when, champions somehow find the light.

There’s no doubt that the New York Mets 5-4, 14-inning loss to the Kansas City Royals in Game 1 of the 2015 World Series was a shot to their solar-plexus. Although the AL Champs saw Matt Harvey grab a two-run lead and the untouchable Jeurys Familia a one-run lead, they didn’t flinch en route to coming back twice within a blink of an eye.

This is exactly why Jacob deGrom taking the mound in Game 2 sets up perfectly.

He’ll oppose the supposed ace of the Royals in Johnny Cueto. From a lineup standpoint, the only change Terry Collins makes is inserting a hot Juan Lagares into center-field, while Yoenis Cespedes shifts to left.

First pitch comes your way at 8:07 PM ET from Kansas City.
