GAME 2-- The series was tied up last night inside Kauffman Stadium which had a sold out stadium as Kansas City and the San Francisco Giants are now squared away at one apiece. This marks nearly three decades since the Kansas City Royals had won their last World Series game. After the first game there were plenty of sports pundits around the nation who were quick to write off the boys in blue, but they showed in game 2 that they are looking to fight and have a chance to step into MLB history.
The Crowed was tallied at 40,446 and for most of the match the most of them were at a stand during the entire game. The Royals fanbase have been very vocal with their support for the current team for most of the season, you could see some passionate cheering in the crowd during game 2.
Going in to the gith inning is was still tied at 2-2, although this was the inning that the Royals would break out and made the hits they needed to secure the win. Bill Butler was inspirational for his team in the 6th with an RBI and after the game said, "We showed them that we have fight in us, and I think they knew that already, but we stepped up big there as a team, and that gave us some confidence."
The Giants manager Bruce Bochy knows this is going to be a fight and said, "With their pitching and our pitching, and the way both teams play, we're going to have a fight, I think, every game." When the game first started off it looked as if the Giants could take another big lead, but the hot bats went cold as the 100 Mph fastballs started finding their way. Royals pitcher Orlando Ventura allowed 2 runs as he pitched into the 6th, the 23 year old looked very calm on the mound under the partly cloudy skies.
The Giants ended up using five pitchers tieing only two other teams in recorded history, the Cardinals lost to the Royals in 1985 and Orioles also lost to the Pirates in 1979. The Giants will have Hudson pitch in game three, he has never pitched in the world series before and has started 11 out of the 12 postseason games he has been apart of. The Royals will go with the 11-year veteran in Guthrie, however he only made his first postseason start in the ALCS game against the Orioles.
