Kansas City Royals Playoff Details
Kansas City Royals Postseason History
The Kansas City Royals have been able to put together multiple eras of baseball where they have been able to compete for championships by making the postseason. Riding strong pitching when they have been in those situations, the Royals have been known for playing in series that are intense and captivating whether you are Royals fan or not.
Kansas City won its first World Series in 1985, and they did it largely with their pitching staff. In a tense, seven game series with their in-state rivals the St. Louis Cardinals, the Royals managed to limit the offense of the Cardinals in a big way. In the Royals’ four wins in the series, they held St. Louis to a combined total of three runs. One big reason for that was the pitching of Bret Saberhagen.
Saberhagen won the 1985 Cy Young award for his brilliant pitching that season, but he took his work to another level in the World Series. Saberhagen made two starts for the Royals in the series, and threw two complete games. In those 18 innings, he allowed just one earned run. In Game Seven, he threw a complete game shutout, as the Royals won in an 11-0 blowout of the Cardinals, with Saberhagen receiving series MVP honors.
Kansas City became champions again in 2015, when they defeated the New York Mets in a five game series. After falling to the Giants in the 2014 World Series in seven games, the Royals were resilient all season long, and were rewarded with their second championship. During the series, the Royals won multiple extra-inning games, including a 14 inning win in Game One that set the tone for the rest of the series by giving all momentum to the Royals.
In terms of rivalries, the rivalry between the Royals and the < href="/new-york-yankees-tickets/playoff-tickets">New York Yankees was incredibly entertaining during the late 1970s up to 1980. The teams met in the playoffs four times from 1976 to 1980, with the playoff format at the time moving the winner straight into the World Series. The Royals got the better of the Yankees in the form of a three game sweep in the 1980 American League Championship Series, putting a bow in the rivalry during that era.
