Recent history favors Kansas City. Home teams have won nine straight Game 7s in the Series since Pittsburgh’s victory at Baltimore in 1979.
A couple hundred fans stood behind the Royals dugout for more than a half-hour after the final out, screaming and waving white rally towels. Bring on Game 7!
The Kansas City Royals eked out a win over the San Francisco Giants in Game 3 of the World Series. Here are 5 things you missed.
Tim Hudson starts for the Giants against Jeremy Guthrie as the Royals play their first game in San Francisco since 2005, when they took two of three.
Royals infielder Miguel Tejada has been suspended 105 games by Major League Baseball for violating its joint drug program, one of the longest suspensions ever handed down.
Lucas Duda drove in 4 runs as the Mets defeated the Rockies 7-5 on Saturday night.
Alex Rodriguez hit a home run and collected three hits in his spring debut as the Yankees defeated the Phillies, 7-4 on Sunday.
Jeremy Guthrie shut down the New York Yankees for seven innings, perhaps driving up his price in a trade, and the Baltimore Orioles got homers from Mark Reynolds and Derrek Lee in a 4-2 victory Friday night.
Dependable Dodger starter Hiroki Kuroda makes a better trade deadline fit for the New York Yankees than Ubaldo Jimenez or for that matter any available starter on the trade block. It wouldn’t take a massive deal to land the services of the Japanese hurler.
