Royals Jeremy Guthrie gets the loss in Game 7


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/29/2014) Royals pitcher Jeremy Guthrie picked up the loss Wednesday in Game 7 against the Giants.

Guthrie allowed three runs on four hits over 3 1/3 innings. He struck out three and did not issue any walks during the performance. Manager Ned Yost had a quick hook with the season on the line, leading to Guthrie getting pulled despite a low pitch count. After putting two men on base to start the fourth, Guthrie was replaced by Kelvin Herrera. Herrera would allow a run-scoring single to Michael Morse. That run would be charged to Guthrie, ultimately sticking him with the loss.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/28/2014) Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas went 2 for 4 with a double, a home run and two RBI in his team's 10-0 skewering of the Giants in Game 6 of the World Series Tuesday.

Moustakas kicked off a seven-run second inning by driving home a run with a double. He then capped off the offensive explosion with a solo blast in the seventh inning. It was Moustakas' fifth postseason home run, but he's been very quiet over the past two weeks, collecting just three hits in 23 at-bats over his previous seven games before delivering a big performance Tuesday.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The Royals pulled the series even at 3-3 behind a seven-run second inning on offense and the effective wildness of the rookie Ventura (1-0), who walked the bases loaded with one out in the third inning but induced a ground-ball double play to escape unscathed. The Royals have won all five playoff games in which Ventura has pitched, though this is his first decision recorded. The two teams head to Wednesday for a decisive Game 7 in Kansas City.

That wasn't so in the second inning, where he opened by giving up two singles and a double to bring a run home. After striking out a batter, the Giants starter surrendered back-to-back singles to bring another run home and another San Francisco pitcher into the game. The Royals went on to score a total of seven runs in the inning. The two teams meet Wednesday in the decisive Game 7 with the championship on the line.
