Royals Battle Giants in Pivotal MLB 2014 World Series Game 5

Royals Battle Giants in Pivotal MLB 2014 World Series Game 5
Following an 11–4 blowout win by the Giants last night, San Francisco and Kansas City hook up for Game 5 of the Major League Baseball World tonight. This is the 44th time the Fall Classic has been tied at 2-2 and the Game 5 winner has won the title 28 times. First pitch flies at 8:07 PM ET on October 26, 2014, from AT&T Park in San Francisco, CA.

Battle on the Bump: Madison Bumgarner vs James Shields

Though the ratings are down, we’ve been treated to a very entertaining Fall Classic as the best-of-seven is now a best-of-three. NLCS MVP and a front-runner for the World Series MVP, RHP Madison “Bigger Game” Bumgarner heads to bump versus James “Big Game” Shields in a rematch of WS Game 1 starters. That worked out pretty good for San Fran during their 7-1 series opening win in Kansas City as Bumgarner allowed just one run on four hits over seven sparkling innings. Madbum has now pitched 38.2 innings in the 2014 playoffs and he’s allowed just six earned runs (7 total) on 22 hits with 33 strikeouts. The Bay Area Boys roughed up Shields in Game 1 as they scored five runs on seven hits and Big Game left the game after just three innings of work.

Royals are looking to reload after their second Fall Classic pounding

It took them a while to get going, after spotting the Royals a 4-1 lead, but San Francisco pounded out nine runs over three innings (5th to the 7th) to earn their series tying win last night. The Giants top six batters went 11 for 26 with five walks and they scored a combined eight times. Kansas City rebounded after their Game 1 blowout loss with a bashing of their own as they took Game 2 by a 7-2 count. Don’t expect a repeat as Bumgarner has given up three runs or less in 14 of his last 15 starts and the Giants have posted an 11-4 record during that stretch. San Francisco will draw on recent playoff success as this is a “must win” situation with the next two games being back in Big Blue Mizzo. The Giants have won four straight Game 5 playoff matches by a combined 20-8 count.

San Francisco vs Kansas City Game Day Call: The Giants bats didn’t fall completely silent in their Game 2 loss as they banged out nine hits but they couldn’t push the runners around the bases. That bodes well for those wondering if the Giants will have some pop left in their bats following their 16-hit barrage last night. With two pitchers who are headed in opposite directions dealing in this contest, we are backing the Bay Area Bulldogs tonight. Give us San Francisco with a 350 wager on the money line posted at the SportsBetting.ag sportsbook.

MVP Call: With Bumgarner still a healthy +500 to win the World Series MVP Award, we are going to bet that with 100 units. When he gets the win tonight – he will be an MVP lock once the Giants win the World Series. If Yordano Ventura sparkles and the Royals win Game 6 and the series, his +4000 ML price is a handsome payout. Playing with funds in our “longshots with a chance” bankroll we’ll back the rookie fireballer with a 50 unit wager.
