The Series returned to Kansas City tonight – in more ways than one. After three hours and twenty-one minutes of baseball, the Royals shut out San Francisco with ten unanswered runs. Admittedly I felt the Royals would be the underdogs in this contest, but with a fired up hometown crowd, Game 7 will prove to be an extraordinary one.
If there were any doubts about whether or not Kansas City belonged in the World Series, Game Two was the litmus test. The Royals erupted last night in a 7-2 victory over San Francisco. The score was stalled at 2-2 going into the bottom of the sixth when a string of KC hits by Butler and Perez brought in three more runs. The nail in the Giants’ coffin was Omar Infante’s monster two run homer in the bottom of the sixth. We’ll see if the Royals can bring some of that mojo to San Fran on Friday night.
Kansas City hosted the San Francisco Giants in game one of the 2014 World Series last night. It didn’t take long for the Giants to dominate with an early 3-0 lead thanks to a deep center two-run dinger by Hunter Pence. The Royals struggled to take control defensively digging four arms deep into their bullpen. Seeing extra innings was common in the division series, but it only took nine to put KC out of their misery. Hopefully the Royals can mount a comeback in game two.
