Back on Saturday, it was Jason Vargas for the Royals up against Ryan Vogelsong for the Giants. The Royals sent Vogelsong to the showers early after driving in four runs off of him in just two and two-thirds innings. At that point, the Royals were up four to one, and it looked like the Royals might take a three to one lead.
But the Giants weren’t just going to give the Royals that kind of lead, and they stormed back by scoring ten unanswered runs. The final score would be 11-4, Giants tying the series up at two a piece.
In Game 5, Madison Bumgarner was on the mound, and he was dominant.
The Giants scored five runs, which was way more than enough, as Bumgarner would pitch a complete game shutout. The Giants took the series lead three to two.
Yesterday, the Royals needed to win this game to force a Game 7. The Giants just could not get any of the Royals out. Yordano Ventura, who had RIP OT on his hat for Oscar Taveras who got in a car accident over the weekend in the Dominican Republic and died, pitched a gem. He went seven scoreless innings, as the offense exploded with ten runs. The series was tied at three, and we were headed for a Game 7.
Game 7 exceeded expectations by far. It was a great game as Jeremy Guthrie and Tim Hudson were on the mound. They both left the game early as both teams wanted to give the ball to the bullpen.
Each team scored two runs in the 2nd inning, then Michael Morse hit an RBI single in the third to give the Giants a three to two lead. Madison Bumgarner came in in the 5th inning in relief on two days rest. He pitched great, and he went all the way into the 9th.
But with two outs, Alex Gordon got to third on a single and an error by the center fielder. Salvador Perez could not capitalize on the situation, as he would pop out to the third baseman Pablo Sandoval, and the Giants have won the World Series.
That is all that I have for you today! See you later MLB fans!
