The Kansas City Royals’ unbeaten playoff streak came to a dramatic halt in last night’s World Series Game 1. Trounced 7-1 by the San Francisco Giants, the Royals look to even the Series a one game a piece tonight as we watch World Series live stream Game 2 Royals vs Giants or on TV on Fox.
Last night’s starting pitcher for the Royals, James Shields, earned the nickname “Big Game James” in the minor leagues. His World Series performance last night made you wonder why. Before Game 1 of the World Series he had a career postseason ERA of 5.19 in nine starts. Thanks to Hunter Pence and five of the first six San Francisco Giants batters last night, Shields’ postseason now includes 28 hits and 15 runs in 19 innings.
The Royals’ starting pitcher tonight as we watch World Series live stream Game 2 is Yordano Ventura. Ventura had a 5-7 regular-season record with a 3.27 ERA in 16 home starts, and his postseason this year has been even worse.
Meanwhile, Giants pitcher Madison Bumgarner was dominant in Game 1. The NLCS MVP is now 3-1 this postseason and 3-0 all-time in World Series games. Bumgartner’s replacement on the mound tonight will be Jake Peavy. Like the Royals’ Ventura, the Giants’ starting pitcher will be battling some of his own demons.
Peavy (1-0, 1.86 ERA) has allowed two runs and six hits in 9-2/3 innings of two starts this season. His most recent start, NLCS Game 2, saw him give up two runs and four hits with three walks in four innings. The Giants lost that game 5-4 to the St. Louis Cardinals.
