Ventura to become first Royals rookie to start in World Series at any position

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Win or lose, Jake Peavy is a treat to watch when he pitches. He scowls, he shouts, he grimaces, he grins. Never hard to tell how things are going for him. And depending how he does for the San Francisco Giants on Wednesday night against Kansas City rookie Yordano Ventura, this World Series could quickly shape up as an even match or a mismatch. read more

Giants' Jake Peavy, Angels' Josh Hamilton are emotional contrasts

San Francisco Giants right-hander Jake Peavy, who will start Game 2 of the World Series against the Kansas City Royals on Wednesday night, has always been a pitcher who wears his heart on his sleeve … and his cap, his jersey, his pants and his stirrups, for that matter.

Hunter Pence made great, evil faces after his home run

Here are five of them. There was so much to highlight from Game 1, so much mirth. Did you see Brandon Belt protecting his genitals? Alex Pavlovic would like to draw your attention to Brandon Belt protecting his genitals. Did you see Jake Peavy and David Ortiz acting like adorable dorks who haven't seen each other for months, which is exactly what they are? It's even better than it sounds: Your browser does not support iframes. This brings us to Hunter Pence, who is an absolute delight. I feel painfully sorry for the 27 teams who have never had him on a roster. His mural will span five...

Royals notebook: Veteran Peavy, rookie Ventura excited for Game 2 showdown

By Matt Galloway matthew.galloway@cjonline.com KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Good or bad, Jake Peavy has never been one to shy away from his emotions on the mound. Whether it comes in the form of childlike enthusiasm or full-blown rage, he is easily one of the most animated pitchers in the sport. On Wednesday, it will be another pitcher’s emotions the San Francisco Giants’ starter will aim to exploit: Kansas City Royals rookie Yordano Ventura. “I think we all know how talented he is,” Peavy said, “and we’ll try to hopefully take advantage of some of the excitement.” read more
