Royals force Game 7

Sports

October 29th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Kansas City Royals have stretched the World Series to the limit. The Royals have forced a seventh game by erupting for seven runs in the second inning of a 10-0 rout of the San Francisco Giants. Eight Royals scored a run or drove in a run — or did both — during the rally. Lorenzo Cain hit a two-run single and Eric Hosmer added a two-run double before Billy Butler capped the barrage with an RBI double.

Cain went 2-for-3 with three RBIs, and Mike Moustakas was 2-for-4 with a solo homer, two RBIs and two runs scored. Winning pitcher Yordano Ventura was outstanding over seven innings, giving up three hits and five walks with four strikeouts. Jason Frasor and Tim Collins each threw one inning of relief to complete the six-hitter.

Giants starter and loser Jake Peavy was chased in the second, charged with five runs and six hits in 1 1/3 innings. Jeremy Guthrie starts Wednesday night for Kansas City against Tim Hudson in a rematch of Game 3, won by Kansas City 3-2. The 39-year-old Hudson will become the oldest Game 7 starter in Series history.

SOSUA, Dominican Republic (AP) — Thousands of people in the Dominican Republic attended the burial of former St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Oscar Taveras. Among those at the funeral Tuesday was Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak and manager Mike Matheny.

The 22-year-old slugger was considered one of baseball’s top prospects. Taveras hit .239 with three homers and 22 RBIs in 80 games in his only season in the majors. Taveras died Sunday after authorities say he lost control of his 2014 Chevrolet Camaro. His girlfriend also was killed in the crash.

Chiefs’ Smith sustained shoulder injury vs Rams

Sports

October 28th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith played through a sprained throwing shoulder that he sustained just before halftime of Sunday’s 34-7 rout of the St. Louis Rams. Smith never mentioned the injury in his postgame remarks, and it wasn’t until Chiefs coach Andy Reid brought it up Monday that anybody learned of it outside the Kansas City locker room.

Reid said that Smith landed on his shoulder but played through the pain. The game was still very much in the balance when the injury happened, the Chiefs leading just 10-7 at the break. Smith went through a series of examinations Monday. Reid said the quarterback is “tender” and declined to say whether he will miss any practice time this week.

The Chiefs play the New York Jets on Sunday.
