San Francisco Giants
Madison Bumgarner, who shows virtually no emotion on the mound, carried a shutout into the seventh inning and beat the Royals by a score of 7-1 Tuesday night.
The Giants and Royals got to the World Series by playing better baseball than better teams. Which team will emerge as champion?
The San Francisco Giants could win a third World Series in five seasons by beating the Kansas City Royals. But it won’t make them a dynasty.
The Kansas City Royals traded for starting pitcher James Shields before the 2013 season, giving up top hitting prospect Wil Myers.
The World Series between the Royals and Giants will feature two teams that didn’t even win 90 games during the regular season.
Thursday night, the Utah Jazz defeated the Los Angeles Lakers 119-86 to improve their preseason record to 4-0. Despite that, Jazz head coach Quin Snyder didn’t seem satisfied (you’ll see…).
The Giants beat the Cardinals to make the World Series. But baseball fans outside of San Francisco will be rooting for the Royals.
Travis Ishikawa made good on the big stage only a few months removed from the minors, hitting the first homer to end an NLCS on a three-run drive that lifted San Francisco to a 6-3 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 5 on Thursday night.
In the NLCS, the San Francisco Giants and St. Louis Cardinals are evenly matched. Baseball fans should hang on and enjoy the ride.
The Royals lead the Orioles 2-0. The Cardinals and Giants are tied at one game. What’s the chance of each possible World Series matchup?
Nail-biting tension. Extra-inning excitement. Game-changing home runs. Baseball’s postseason has offered up a lot of drama, if you can stay awake long enough to see it.
