Through three innings of World Series Game 3, Royals lead Giants 1-0

Leave a comment

Royals shortstop Alcides Escobar led off Game 3 of the World Series with a double to left field off of Giants starter Tim Hudson, and the Royals quickly capitalized. After moving Escobar to third base on an Alex Gordon ground out, Lorenzo Cain brought him home with a ground out of his own to shortstop Brandon Crawford.

The Royals kept threatening in the second inning, putting on the first two batters of the frame against a shaky Hudson. But Salvador Perez was robbed of a hit on a line drive by a sprawling Travis Ishikawa in left field, and then Hudson induced a 4-6-3 double play out of Jarrod Dyson to keep the Giants’ deficit at one run. Hudson was able to cut through the Royals with very little issue in the third.

Royals starter Jeremy Guthrie yielded a pair of second-inning singles, one of which was erased when Hunter Pence was caught attempting to steal second base. Other than that, the Giants haven’t been able to mount an attack against the right-hander.
