Mets World Series: Highlights from the Mets' Game 4 loss to the Royals

Despite the loss, there were some bright spots for the Mets.

After a Game 3 win against the Royals in the World Series, the Mets fell in Game 4 by a score of 5-3. Steven Matz pitched well in his World Series debut, but he ended up not factoring into the decision. Jon Niese bounced back after a rough Game 2 by recording two outs in the fifth, and Addison Reed maintained his stellar postseason form.

Here are some video highlights of the positives for the Mets from Game 4.

The game started off with an eventful top of the first, as Travis d'Arnaud was interfered with while trying to throw to second.

To lead off the bottom of the third, rookie Michael Conforto hit his second homer of the postseason, making him the youngest Met ever to hit a home run in the World Series.

The very next batter was Wilmer Flores, and he got on with a single. He ended up scoring on a sac fly, but the Royals challenged the play to see if the Mets' shortstop left third base early. The call was upheld.

Conforto led off the bottom of the fifth with another dinger. This put him behind Andruw Jones and Tony Kubek as the third-youngest player in MLB history to hit two homers in a World Series game and the first Met to do so since Gary Carter in 1986.

In the top of the sixth, Bartolo Colon faced Salvador Perez with a man on second. After a long battle between the two, Colon struck out the Royals' catcher to end the threat.

With runners on the corners and one out, Daniel Murphy put an end to a bad inning with this double play, preventing the Royals from adding to their lead.

The Mets, down in the series three games to one, take on the Royals tonight in Game 5.
