Breaking even: Royals top Giants in Game 2 of World Series

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — By the looks of it, the Kansas City Royals might be streaking again. After suffering their first loss of the postseason in the World Series opener to San Francisco on Tuesday, the Royals bounced back and defeated the Giants, 7-2, in Game 2 on Wednesday night at Kauffman Stadium and evened the series at one game apiece. With the score tied at two in the bottom of the sixth, the Royals broke the game open with five runs on five hits, capped by Omar Infante’s two-run homer to left. Billy Butler and Salvador Perez also added RBI hits in the inning. read more

Kevin Haskin: Struggles for Shields continue with Game 1 loss

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The better nickname would have been Big Yield Shields. But his first name is James. And he starts key games.

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

‘Modern Family’ star pokes fun at Giants fan on flight to World Series

ericstonestreetEric Stonestreet loves his Royals. (Photo by Jordan Strauss/Invision/AP) Emmy-winning actor Eric Stonestreet, who plays Cameron on ABC’s ‘Modern Family’, has jumped headlong onto the Royals bandwagon. So when the 43-year-old actor saw a man with a San Francisco Giants cap sitting behind him on his flight to Kansas City for Game 1 and Game 2 of the World Series, Stonestreet took to Instagram to tease him.
