Kansas City Royals players celebrate after defeating the New York Mets in game five of the World Series 2015Reuters

Kansas City Royals made history after winning the World Series for the first time in 30 years after a stunning comeback victory over the New York Mets at Citi Field, New York, on Sunday.

The Royals won the best-of-seven series with a 4-1 result after their whopping 7-2 victory in game five.

Ned Yost's side were 2-0 down in the ninth, but they made a jaw-dropping comeback to record the victory in the 12th inning.

"What they accomplished this year was nothing less than spectacular and very, very special," Royals manager Yost said after making history.

"They just don't quit, they've got a lot of heart, they've got a lot of character and they never think they are going to lose," the American coach heaped immense praise on his players.

Catcher Salvador Perez bagged the Most Valuable Player of the 2015 World Series for the Royals, and the manager of the Major League Baseball (MLB) side could not be more happy with the Venezuelan's performance.

"He just had a phenomenal series," the Royals manager said. "I think if I had one regret during the whole playoffs, [it] was I had to pinch run for Sal[vador] there in that inning. But it opened up the door for us to score five.

"I really wish that Sal could have been out there to jump in [closerWade Davis'] arms when we got the final out," Yost explained.

Perez, who is a three-time MLB All-Star, and a two-time Gold Glove Award winner, hit .364/.391/.455 in the series to display his class once again.

"You guys know what we've done all season," Perez said. "We never quit. We never put our heads down. ... We always compete to the last out. And that's what we did tonight," Perez said after his team won the World Series for the first time since 1985.

"It's unbelievable. I always say we feel like a family here.

"We've got the same group, almost the same group [from] when I played my first year in 2007 in Arizona, in the Rookie league. It's amazing to now win a World Series and see the same guys with you. It's exciting," the Venezuelan added.
