World Series

Giants win Game 5 of the World Series, lead Royals 3-2

It probably had more to do with Madison Bumgarner's pitching than the sprit of Robin Williams, but with their 5-0 win Sunday night, the San Francisco Giants are one win away from taking the World Series. Bumgarner not only shut out the Kansas City Royals at San Francisco's AT&T Park, he also pitched a complete game — the first time a Giants pitcher has done either of those feats in a World Series since 1962. In 117 pitches, he allowed just four hits.

The Giants now lead the Royals 3-2 in the best-of-seven series. Games 6 and 7 (if necessary) will be in Kansas City.
