Mets seek improvement in clutch vs. Royals

The Kansas City Royals and the New York Mets will continue a three-game series Saturday night with the Mets likely looking at missed opportunities from their 4-1 loss in the opener.

In their 2015 World Series loss to the Royals, the Mets blew leads in all four defeats, including blowing two ninth-inning leads.

On Friday, the telling stat was New York's 1-for-9 production with runners on base. Trailing by three runs, the Mets loaded the bases in the ninth before a game-ending groundout.
