Royals crush Giants to force winner-take-all Game 7 in World Series

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The bottom of the second inning Tuesday night lasted 40 pitches, a lifetime in one dugout and a blur in the other.

The crowd at Kaufmann Stadium exalted and waved blue towels and hollered for more, and more they will — everybody will — get.
