Kansas City Royals News

Escobar pounces quickly, providing spark for Royals

Before some fans at AT&T Park had even finished taking their seat, Alcides Escobar hammered the first pitch of the game from Tim Hudson for a double. He scored later in the inning on a groundout to give the Royals a lead they'd never surrender in their 3-2 victory in Game 3 of the World Series on Friday.

Drastically different lineup comes through for KC

Ned Yost adapted to National League rules with a drastic lineup change, and after his Royals pulled out the 3-2 win that gave them a 2-1 advantage in this Fall Classic, only one word could accurately depict him: Genius.

Yost's faith, sixth-inning moves work for Royals

Ned Yost knows that baseball games aren't won in the sixth inning. And he vows that his team will never lose one at that late-but-not-too-late point of the game, either, not if there's anything he can do about it. "My mind-set is that I'm not getting beat in the sixth inning with the bullpen I've got," Yost said on Friday after his team let the Giants back into the game in the bottom of that frame but choked off the rally and held on to win, 3-2.

Hosmer's 11-pitch at-bat epitomizes KC kids' growth

If the Kansas City Royals go on to win this World Series, we can look back at a moment in Game 3 on Friday night that might just tell the whole story. First, though, let's push the pause button and rewind to 2011 to understand how far these Royals have come. That was around the time they proudly wore the label of "baseball's best farm system."

Guthrie delivers Royals a postseason gem by the Bay

His 147-pitch victory in a 2003 NCAA Regional was the signature start of Jeremy Guthrie's postseason career, but perhaps no longer. The one the folks in California will chew on now is the five-inning performance in Game 3 that helped Kansas City to a 3-2 win and 2-1 World Series lead over San Francisco.

Vargas, Royals in search of commanding Series lead

A Royals team that was under .500 as recently as July 22 is now two wins away from claiming the World Series crown. And a Giants team that has owned even-year Octobers of late faces its first World Series deficit in the Bruce Bochy era. It's going to be fascinating to see how Ryan Vogelsong and the Giants respond and whether Jason Vargas and the Royals can seize control in Game 4 tonight at AT&T Park

Statcast: Perez's scoop and throw too fast for Blanco

Trailing Game 3 of the World Series by one run in the bottom of the eighth inning, the Giants desperately needed a baserunner. They almost got one on a Gregor Blanco bunt, but Statcast shows how a smooth play by Royals catcher Salvador Perez and a poor decision by Blanco helped Kansas City hold on for a 3-2 victory and 2-1 Series lead.

Game 3 Did you know: Holland ties postseason saves record

Here is a look at a number of interesting facts and figures from Friday night's Game 3, including just how important a Game 3 victory is when a Series is previously tied 1-1 and how Royals starter Jeremy Guthrie now finds himself in the same company as -- Babe Ruth?

Royals perfectly suited for National League style

The Royals' remarkable fielding combines with a deep pitching staff to give them the ability to win low-scoring games. Kansas City is probably better constructed to compete in the National League and it showed with a 3-2 win over the Giants in Game 3 of the World Series on Friday night.

Herrera's first MLB at-bat comes in World Series

Kelvin Herrera was 16 years old the last time he stepped into a batter's box in a competitive baseball game. And yet, there he was on Friday night, called upon to bat in a one-run game in the World Series. He promptly struck out on three pitches, but not before fouling off a Sergio Romo fastball.

Fresh from campus, Finnegan making history

After six postseason appearances, rookie southpaw Brandon Finnegan is beginning to look like an old pro, "like he's had five, seven years in the league," according to third baseman Mike Moustakas. But Finnegan admitted to feeling some jitters on Friday night in the Royals' 3-2 win over the Giants in Game 3 of the World Series.

Vargas aims to use AT&T Park to his advantage

Jason Vargas' first meaningful outing at AT&T Park coincides with a chance to give his Royals a commanding 3-1 lead in this Fall Classic. It'll come against a Giants team he held to two runs on nine hits in five innings on Aug. 8, a lineup the 31-year-old left-hander called "really good."

Royals seize control of Series, edge Giants in Game 3

Kansas City took charge of this World Series on Friday, but the Royals were exhibiting no exaggerated claims of confidence or undue displays of bravado after their 3-2 victory over the Giants in Game 3 at AT&T Park. The Royals, though, might be in better shape than they dare to think after taking the Series lead, two games to one.
