The San Francisco Giants may have knocked off the team with the National League’s best regular season record but that doesn’t mean they’re the new favorites to win the World Series, or the National League Pennant for that matter.
One team has waited decades to return to the postseason, the other looked World Series-bound before stumbling and barely eking into the playoffs on the final day. Just how long in the making is this rematch? The teams last played in 1981.
The Royals took the season series, winning five of seven against the Athletics, who have the best record in the majors.
The Kansas City Royals won their eighth straight game and took over the AL Central lead Monday night when Yordano Ventura outdueled Sonny Gray during a 3-2 win over Oakland Athletics.
Alex Gordon and Salvador Perez each homered and Danny Duffy pitched into the seventh inning as the Royals beat the Giants 7-4 Sunday.
James Shields threw a four-hitter and Alex Gordon homered as the Royals won their sixth straight, beating the Giants 5-0 on Saturday night.
James Shields pitched eight sharp innings for his first win in nearly a month, and the Kansas City Royals beat the Oakland Athletics 4-2 on Sunday.
