Giants at Royals, 2:00PM HST/5:00PM PT, TV: Fox
Kansas City’s rookie Yordano Ventura starts for the home team, while 13-year veteran Jake Peavy is on the hill for the visiting San Franciscans.
Insert paragraphs about “the team which goes up 2 games to none in a seven-game series wins umpty-ump percentage of the time” and blah blah blah. The Giants know that. The Royals know that. Neither team cares about it. It’s this Series they’re playing, not all those ones in the past.
That said, the Royals really would like to win at home tonight, to get the split and to get their fans excited.
