Immediately after the amazingly long second inning, Yordano Ventura ran into a wall. Ventura immediately walked three in a row, with Panik fighting off pitch after pitch before his walk. Fortunately, Buster Posey had, quite possibly, the worst at-bat of the World Series. Down by 7 with the bases loaded with only one out, witnessing the pitcher walk three straight, Posey swung at the first pitch. This produced a weak grounder that resulted in a double play and no damage done.
WIth Omar Infante's ground rule double in the third, every single player in the starting lineup got a hit. Every one. That's what singles train do. And then Cain also hit a ground rule double, extending his legend. We're at the point where we can sort of predict who the MVP will be for each team should they win--Bumgarner for the Giants and either Cain/Hosmer for the Royals are most likely to me.

Guthrie Ventura is still pitching.
