World Series Game 2 Open Thread: Royals vs. Giants

New, comments

The Giants jumped out to a World Series lead with Madison Bumgarner on the mound last night against a not-so-Big-Game James Shields. Good news for the Royals is that the rest of the Giants rotation isn't as imposing as Bumgarner. Tonight's pitching matchup features Jake Peavy for San Francisco against Yordano Ventura for Kansas City. Can KC even the score before the series shifts to AT&T Park?
