The Giants are poised to win their 3rd World Series Championship in 5 years, but they will have to do it against a formidable Royals team that seems to find a way to win when they have to.
The one thing San Fran has on it’s side is momentum thank to starting pitcher Madison Bumgarner, who pitched a shutout to secure the 5-0 win.
The last pitcher to pitch a complete game shutout in the World Series was Josh Beckett in ’93, putting the 25 year old Bumgarner in a truly elite class.
Unfortunately, the Giants don’t him starting tonight; they will have to rely on Jake Peavy to come out and get them that 3rd ring and avoid a game 7.
That will not be an easy task, as Peavy has had a terrible postseason, so he will need to dig deep and grinding it out while his team must come up with runs.
That might be hard to do as well, as Royals pitcher Yordano Ventura held the Giants to 2 runs in his game 2 start and not one player was able to get more than one hit off of him.
If Ventura is on his game the Giants won’t be able to manufacture the runs they need and there will be a deciding game 7 tomorrow night.
My prediction: Royals 5 – Giants 1.
