World Series Game Capsule
(Friday, October 24)
Final Score: Kansas City 3, San Francisco 2
San Francisco, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - A solid bullpen and strong defense have the Royals within two victories of a World Series championship. Kelvin Herrera, Brandon Finnegan, Wade Davis and Greg Holland combined to throw four no-hit innings of relief, as Kansas City edged the San Francisco Giants, 3-2, in Game 3 of the Fall Classic. Run-scoring hits from Alex Gordon and Eric Hosmer in the sixth inning provided the visitors with a 3-0 lead, and the Royals held on after the Giants broke through with two runs against Jeremy Guthrie in the home sixth. Holland closed the door by retiring the side in order to give Kansas City a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven series. It was Holland's seventh save of this year's playoffs, tying a single-season mark that is shared by John Wetteland (1996), Troy Percival (2002, Angels), Robb Nen (2002, Giants), Brad Lidge (2008, Phillies) and Koji Uehara (2013, Red Sox). Game 4 is Saturday, again at AT&T Park. Jason Vargas starts for the Royals, and Ryan Vogelsong toes the rubber for the Giants.
