Giants win World Series, beating Royals in close Game 7

And Kansas City's dream of winning its first World Series in 29 years ended Wednesday night, as the Royals lost a hard-fought Game 7 to the San Francisco Giants, 3-2, at Ewing M. Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City. The Royals got their 2 runs in the second inning, then were shut out when Giants ace Madison Bumgarner took the mound in the unusual role of relief pitcher, allowing only two hits in the last five innings. This is the Giants' third World Series championship in five years.
