Game 6: A Blowout and a Game 7

The Kansas City Royals allowed fans to cancel any non-baseball plans the for the tomorrow night with a seven run second inning. When it was all over, the Royals had won 10-0.

Lorenzo Cain knocked in three runs and Eric Hasmer added two more. The three and four hitters combined to go 4 for 8 with 2 walks. Mike Moustakas hit a two-run homer off Hunter Strickland in the seventh.

In addition to Kansas City's bats coming alive, young Yordani Ventura shut down the Giants in seven innings, only giving up three hits. The Giants were not as fortunate on the hill. Jake Peavy was credited with giving up five runs. Yusmeiro Petit gave up two and so did Jean Machi.

This will be the first Game 7 of the World Series since 2002.
