Royals Strike Back

Game 2 of the World Series wasn't viewed by myself until the 4th inning. I was involved in some family fun time and that became more important than the Fall Classic, but it's ok because when I turned the game on it was 2-2 at the beginning of the bottom of the 4th.

Peavy was pitching great and Ventura had a high pitch count, but he was holding his own. Honestly, the action was once again rather mundane except for the bottom of the 6th where the Royals posted a 5 spot as Billy Butler started off with an RBI single to make it 3-2 Royals.

Salvador Perez decided to add on with a huge 2 RBI double to make it 5-2 Royals, and Hunter Strickland then gave up a 2 run homerun to ultimately make it 7-2 and a benches clearing incident where Strickland started barking at Perez when he walked across home plate after Strickland said something. Strickland was pulled, but it was more of the Royals night than it was the Giants faltering.

The score stayed the same as the Royals won 7-2 and tied the series up at 1-1 heading to San Francisco. They will play 3 games in San Francisco starting Friday night.
