Bring on a Game Seven!! The Kansas City Royals made that a certainty, with authority, as young Yordano Ventura shut down the San Francisco Giants Tuesday night at Kaufmann Stadium.
A seven run second inning didn’t hurt either!
With the suspense gone early, in a game devoid of pictures, we all wished the old “slaughter rule” would be implemented by outgoing Commissioner Bud Selig so we could all get back and rest up for the deciding Game Seven.
It seems everyone covering The Series is sick… I have NEVER seen so many people coughing, hacking, and suffering from laryngitis in one place than I have the past few days covering the Series.
Trying to escape from the sickly has been challenging. I’m on the cusp. It’s crazy! I even heard the Royals are suffering from these symptoms as well. If that’s the case, they sure didn’t show any ill effects from it last night!
Jake Peavy was hit hard early, and the usually reliable Yusmerio Petit wasn’t so reliable on this night as the Royals pounded out a seven run second inning to send the Royals faithful into a loud and fun filled tizzy that didn’t stop until hours after the game.
There is nothing like a one-game, winner take all, “mano e mano” showcase like a Game Seven!
