Kansas City Royals fans said they would take the crown, and they finally did.

The Royals captured their second ever World Series title early Monday morning with a 7-2 victory over the New York Mets.

It took 12 innings to decide a winner, but speed once again proved to a killer for the Royals' opponents.

Kansas City's Lorenzo Cain helped start the scoring in the top of the 9th with a stolen base, and Jarrod Dyson followed suit in the 12th.

This is Kansas City's first World Series title since 1985.
