Royals break the tie; 2-1 KC

In a game that had much more entertainment then the prior two games of this series, the Giants fans could have told you to think better.

Game 3 of the World Series was a game of starters full of question marks. Jeremy Guthrie who historically is known to be an average pitcher had his start riding on the hopes of the Kansas City Royals getting a 2-1 series lead, while the Giants had a pitcher who had never made it this point in his lengthy career; Tim Hudson. The questions were more riding on how were they going to react and in what nature would they be able to contribute in such a big series that neither pitcher had ever witnessed. Well hey did a pretty good job.

Tim Hudson got into a bit of a jam on the 1st inning giving up a lead off double that eventually came around to score to give Kansas City a 1-0 lead. Other than that the game moved rather quickly, and scooted to the 6th where the Royals jumped to a 3-0 lead, where a victory seemed certain considering the greatness of HDH. But, the Giants found a way to pull the game back in.

The bottom of the 6th the Giants found a way to bring back those two runs they gave to make it 3-2 going into the 7th inning. Unfortunately, that was all that the Giants could muster as the Royals shut it down the rest of game winning in the city where Lorde isn't allowed to be played. The Royals took a 2-1 series lead to make game 4 a virtual must win for the Giants on Saturday night!

I'll see you after tomorrow night!
