There’s no Goliath in this year’s World Series, just two wild-card teams who keep beating the odds and walking off with playoff wins. So far, the Royals have won all 8 of their post-season games, while the Giants have dropped just two.
Starting Tuesday night, someone is going to start losing. Who? Think of it as a clash of hot streaks. The Royals have been scoring more runs than they did all season, while the Giants pitchers are giving up fewer. One of these streaks has got to give, and it may make the difference in the series.
