Royals vs Giants: MLB 2014 World Series Game Seven Call

Royals vs Giants: MLB 2014 World Series Game Seven Call

Though it never reaches the hype level surrounding the NFL Super Bowl, there's something very special about a Major League Baseball World Series Game 7 finale. For just the second time in twelve years, the Fall Classic has come down to winner take all contest as San Francisco and Kansas City are set to meet in Missouri. First pitch for this edge of your seat action is slated for 8:07 PM ET on October 29, 2014, at Kauffman Stadium in the Show Me State. Picking the winner was a tough call here.

SF Giants: Face a rare Fall Classic elimination game

After rolling to 4-1 and 4-0 World Series wins in 2010 and 2012 respectively, this veteran Giants team is in uncharted waters as they get set to face the Cardiac KC Kids in a match for all the marbles. While a loss is a loss, no matter the score, the 10-0 Game 6 beat-down San Francisco suffered last night was a bit of a shocker. That said, the silver-lining may be the fact that the contest wasn't a close heart-breaking style loss. Veteran RHP Tim Hudson makes his second career World Series start after he gave up three runs on four hits over 5.1 innings in the Giants 3-2 Game 3 loss at AT&T Park last Friday.

KC Royals: Look for second franchise World Series win at the Electric K

Despite being a rout from the outset, after KC posted a seven run second inning, they were standing from the opening pitch to the final out as Royals fans generated another electric atmosphere at Kauffman Stadium last night. The Royals sent eleven batters to the plate in the second frame and pounded out 15 hits overall to force this exciting Game 7 clash. RHP Jeremy Guthrie, who allowed two runs on four hits over five innings in Game 3, heads to the bump for KC. Guthrie has been rock solid for the Royals as he has given up just four earned runs in 30.1 innings pitched over his last six starts.

World Series Game 7 Prediction: We are between a rock and hard place here as we predicted San Francisco would claim the Fall Classic prior to the Game 1 opener. While we love the Giants big game experience, the Royals are on a huge roll, they are playing at home and they have the hotter pitched on the bump - not to mention their stud lock-down bullpen. Kansas City is chalk on the Bovada betting board but we don't expect a blowout win by either side tonight. Sticking with our original prediction, we will back the Giants with a 300 money line wager on this epic Game 7 World Series finale.
