The Giants could not muster up anything all night, finishing with just 6 hits. The only threat they had was in the 3rd, when they loaded the bases for Buster Posey. Posey would hit in to an inning-ending 6-3 double play to end the threat.
The Royals received RBI's from Mike Moustakas, Nori Aoki, Lorenzo Cain (2), Eric Hosmer, and Billy Butler during the 7-run 2nd. Cain would add an RBI double in the 3rd to make it 8 runs over 2 innings. Alcides Escobar's double in the 5th made it 9-0, and Moustakas went deep in the 7th for the 10-0 score.
Jake Peavy started for the Giants, and his postseason struggles continued. He gave up 5 runs on 6 hits in 1.1 innings, running his postseason record to 0-2 with a 9.58 ERA. His record at Kauffman Stadium is now 1-7 with a 7.28 ERA. The 32-minute bottom of the 2nd snapped the Giants streak of scoring 15 consecutive runs. All 9 Royals had a hit by the 3rd inning, which tied the mark set by the 2001 Arizona Diamondbacks.
It was yet another blowout in the series, as it is the 5th game in this World Series decided by 5 or more runs. Game 7 will take place on Wednesday night, with Tim Hudson and Jeremy Guthrie squaring off. Madison Bumgarner is expected to come out of the bullpen when needed, pitching on 3 days rest.
Home teams are now 23-3 in Games 6 and 7 since 1982, with the previous 8 home teams that won Game 6, winning it all in Game 7. The last road team to rebound from Game 6 loss, and win Game 7, was the 1975 Cincinnati Reds at Boston.
