After becoming a postseason hero with homer after homer, NY Mets second baseman Daniel Murphy made an error on a ground ball hit by Paulo Orlando in the 12th inning of Game 5.
Following that mistake, the Kansas City Royals, leading by 3-2 at the time, went on to score four more runs, ultimately winning the World Series in five games.
The final score was Royals 7, Mets 2 in 12 innings.
Murphy had become a hero of another kind during the series - his anti-gay comments from last spring came back to light and he was hailed by the haters of Teabagistan.
But today, the baseball "god" becomes the goat.
