NEW YORK (AP) — The Kansas City Royals rallied for three runs in the eighth inning after Daniel Murphy's error and beat the New York Mets 5-3 on Saturday for a 3-1 lead in the World Series.

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

Mets rookie Michael Conforto hit two home runs and the hosts never trailed until the eighth, when Tyler Clippard issued two walks with one out.

Second baseman Murphy let Eric Hosmer's ground ball go under his glove, allowing the tying run to score. Mike Moustakas and Salvador Perez followed with RBI singles.
