Royals take first battle of bullpens from Giants

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) The first showdown of brilliant bullpens went to the Kansas City Royals.

After Kansas City took the lead with a five-run sixth inning, the trio of Kelvin Herrera, Wade Davis and All-Star closer Greg Holland shut down the hot-hitting San Francisco Giants.

Kansas City cruised from there to a 7-2 victory Wednesday night, evening the World Series at a game apiece as it shifts to the Bay Area for the next three games.
