Sporting Kansas City picked a great time to further add to the misery in the history of two of the biggest cities from each end of the state of Missouri. Ever since the 1985 World Series, St. Louis fans have to live with the anguish and despaired ever since Major League Baseball umpire Don Denkinger Robbed the City of St. Louis and awarded Kansas City in game of 6 when he made the ill-fated call on first base when Jorge Orta, who led off, hit a bouncer to the Cardinals’ first baseman and was called safe despite replaying clearing showed he was out. The Kansas City Royals went on to win game 6, 2-1 and went on the win game 7 and the World Series against the St. Louis Cardinals.
Sunday night Sporting Kansas City score goals in bunches in the first the half goals from Logan Ndenbe on the 27th min, Remi Walter in the 36th and Gadi Kinda 39th min. Tim Paker was the only one who scored for City SC in the 28th minute. Daniel Salloi finally put the nail when he scored on the 61st minute to give Sporting Kansas City a 4-1 victory. City SC loss was the worst defeat for a number one seed in either conference in MLS postseason. The good news is for City SC is they can bounce back but they face a must win next Sunday at Children’s Mercy Park in Kansas City, Kansas on November 5th at 4 pm. A victory means the series will return to St. Louis on November 11th, a loss means that the historical inaugural season for City SC will end in great disappointment especially against their rival from I-70 West of Missouri.
