Royals Storm Back To Take Game 6, Tie Series 3-3

The Royals, down 3-2 coming home into game 6, had the offseason near them heading into 8 o'clock tonight. 7 runs in the second inning changed that thought and delayed it for another day. 

Jake Peavy was on a short leash heading into game 6 and it wasn't long before he was subbed out for Petit. Peavy lasted just 1 1/3 innings pitched. Petit came in relief with the bases loaded and 1 out and gave up a single by Cain that would score 2 runs and then 2 straight doubles by Hosmer and Butler to put the score to 7-0. The Royals never looked back from there eventually winning 10-0. 

Game 6 for the Giants was a must-win until Bochy realized after the 2nd inning the holy may have been too deep to climb out of. Petit was pulled and will likely be available in tomorrow's game 7 matchup since he was limited in how many innings he went tonight. 

Madison Bumgarner is a maybe for tomorrow, at least most sources close to the Giants say. Bumgarner would be going on short rest so if the Giants did play him it could be risking him being tired. Hudson should be the starter. Bumgarner will be available in the bullpen no doubt. Hudson is perfectly capable starting the game and doing well. 

No win in the World Series has been a close game. The Royals and Giants have taken their turns dominating each other. The world wanted a good World Series, and they're going to get one when Guthrie goes up to the mound against either Hudson or Bumgarner on Wednesday night.
