Another nice fall night in Kansas City for Game 2. There's some wind tonight - these fans dressed head-to-toe in blue are hoping this World Series doesn't become a blowout.

No lineup changes from the opener. The Royals are looking to alter their luck against Jake Peavy. He's hittable, unlike the pitcher who has emerged as the best October ace in baseball, Game 1 winner Madison Bumgarner.

The Royals give the ball to flame-throwing 23-year-old Yordano Ventura. Amped up? Let's see if the rookie hits 100 mph on the radar in the first inning.

It's about 10 minutes before the first pitch, a few Giants are already hanging over the dugout rail, taking in the scene. Seems like those guys in orange and black are here pretty often, doesn't it?
