News
Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas went 2 for 4 with a double, a home run and two RBI in his team's 10-0 skewering of the Giants in Game 6 of the World Series Tuesday.

Moustakas kicked off a seven-run second inning by driving home a run with a double. He then capped off the offensive explosion with a solo blast in the seventh inning. It was Moustakas' fifth postseason home run, but he's been very quiet over the past two weeks, collecting just three hits in 23 at-bats over his previous seven games before delivering a big performance Tuesday. The two teams both head into Wednesday's Game 7 needing just one more win to take home a title.

The Royals are expected to decline an option on designated hitter Billy Butler, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

Butler slumped last season, hitting .271/.323/.379 over 549 at-bats. He hit just nine home runs. Butler is owed $12 million next season, and the team is expected to go a different direction.

News
Royals pitcher Danny Duffy was limited by a rib injury throughout the playoffs, according to the Kansas City Star.

Duffy suffered a stress fractuce in his ribcage late in the year, which prevented him from throwing more than two or three innings at a time. Duffy was a candidate to start the first game of the ALDS until the injury cropped up. Duffy was excellent down the stretch for Kansas City. He posted a 2.53 ERA over 149 1/3 innings.

News
Royals pitcher Yordano Ventura picked up the win Tuesday, giving up three hits and five walks in seven scoreless innings while striking out four in his team's 10-0 victory over the Giants in Game 6 of the World Series.

The Royals pulled the series even at 3-3 behind a seven-run second inning on offense and the effective wildness of the rookie Ventura (1-0), who walked the bases loaded with one out in the third inning but induced a ground-ball double play to escape unscathed. The Royals have won all five playoff games in which Ventura has pitched, though this is his first decision recorded. The two teams head to Wednesday for a decisive Game 7 in Kansas City.

News
Royals pitcher Jeremy Guthrie picked up the loss Wednesday in Game 7 against the Giants.

Guthrie allowed three runs on four hits over 3 1/3 innings. He struck out three and did not issue any walks during the performance. Manager Ned Yost had a quick hook with the season on the line, leading to Guthrie getting pulled despite a low pitch count. After putting two men on base to start the fourth, Guthrie was replaced by Kelvin Herrera. Herrera would allow a run-scoring single to Michael Morse. That run would be charged to Guthrie, ultimately sticking him with the loss.
