Giants’ starter Jake Peavy seemed to be in control of the game up until the sixth inning; he had retired 10 batters in a row.  The Royals scored 5 runs in the sixth frame against Peavy and four relievers, highlighted by a two-run homer by Omar Infante.

The more than 40,000 fans at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City stayed to watch the Royals finish off the Giants in Game 2.

“It’s crazy out there, man. Our fans were just rabid’” said Kansas City Royals manager after the game.  “They were into the game from the first pitch. You look up there, and I think there’s half the crowd that doesn’t sit down for the entire game. I don’t know how they keep their energy going, but they sure do. It’s a fun atmosphere,” he added.

The Giants return to San Francisco to host the Royals in game three. 

Royals’ pitcher Herrera got the win after relieving starting pitcher Yordano Ventura who pitch 5.1 innings and allowing 2 earned runs.

San Francisco returns home to host the Royals on game three on Friday.

It’s great to get a win here. This is a great club. We had a tough time here in August, and for us to leave here with a split, you’d like to get greedy, but we know it’s going to be a tough series,” said Giants Manager Bruce Bochy after the game.  

“It was a tight game up until the 6th there. But that’s the way it’s going to be, I think. With their pitching and our pitching and the way both teams play, we are going to have a fight, I think, every game,” added Bochy.

For game three Royals’ pitcher Jeremy Guthrie will face Giants veteran left-hander Tim Hudson.
