Vargas pitches Royals to 2-0 win over Bumgarner, Giants

Kansas City Royals vs. San Francisco Giants- 4/18/17 MLB Pick Odds and Prediction

"We went 1 for 11 with runners in scoring position and the one was an infield hit". After throwing a complete-game shutout in Game 5, Bumgarner threw five more scoreless innings in Game 7 to preserve a one-run lead.

"Nick and I did a good job of moving the ball in and out", said Cain, who allowed four hits and two walks while striking out three. "I had a lot of traffic I had to work through". This will be the first time the Giants have been to Kauffman Stadium since Game 7 of the 2014 World Series, where the bad guys ultimately reigned supreme and swiped the crown from our beloved boys in blue.

Just like the start of that season, the Giants have fallen under.500, and they have had a very hard time hitting with runners in scoring position.

Salvador Perez added an RBI single in the eighth, just the third run surrendered by Giants relievers in the past nine games. Human attendance was 24,402 and canine attendance was 382 for "Bark at the Park.". Jeff Samardzija gave up all 4 runs on 8 hits with 8 strikeouts, taking the loss to fall to 0-4 this season.

Russell's HR caps 4-run 9th as Cubs top Brewers 7-4
Russell is the youngest Cubs player to hit a walk-off home run since Anthony Rizzo in 2012 according to CSN's Christopher Kamka. After Jon Jay got on with one out, Miguel Montero followed suite with a single to give runners on the corners with one out.

Bench coach Ron Wotus said manager Bruce Bochy is still on track to rejoin the team Friday night in Chicago.

The Giants activated catcher Buster Posey from the seven-day concussion list and designated backup catcher Tim Federowicz for assignment before Tuesday night's game against the Royals.

Players for the Kansas City Royals stand for the national anthem before a baseball game against the San Francisco Giants on Wednesday, April 19, 2017, in Kansas City, Mo.

If the Giants' rough 5-9 start wasn't enough to worry fans, the potential departure of a key contributor might just do it. Starter Johnny Cueto told the San Francisco Chronicle over the weekend that he wants to end his career in the American League, despite only spending three months of his 10-year major-league career in the AL thus far. Duffy has 17 strikeouts through 20 innings.
