The Royals came out swinging in game 6, cruising to a 10-0 and forcing a game 7, putting them once again in the drivers seat.
Thanks to the huge lead they built early in game 6 they have a fully rested bullpen ready to go and that is big as this whole series has come down to pitching, both good and bad.
All signs indicate that Tim Hudson will start for the Giants, but if things don’t go well don’t be surprised to see wonder-kid Madison Bumgarner come in in relief.
Bumgarner would be pitching on 2 days rest, but it is possible they could get 3 innings out of him, which could be bad for the Royals depending when/if he enters the game.
The Royals will be starting Jeremy Guthrie, who did a decent job in his last outing through 5 innings.
If he can produce another solid outing like that one until the bullpen takes over then this is the Royals game to lose.
My prediction: Royals take the series: Royals 4-Giants 3.
