The Kansas City Royals had a golden opportunity to defeat the Blue Jays Wednesday and move on to their second straight World Series but that didn’t happen with no offense an no pitching. Starter Edinson Volquez was charged with five runs on three hits and four walks through five innings to absorb the loss. The Royals offense was stuck in the sand with just four hits and a walk with Salvador Perez launching his second long ball of the series in the 8th inning. Yordano Ventura toes the rubber in game six of the ALCS for his second start against the Blue Jays. Ventura did not get a decision in a 6-3 win where he allowed all three runs on eight hits over 5.1 innings.
Price is the best the Blue Jays have and was unbeatable over the last two months of the season. Ventura has electric stuff if he doesn’t overthrow and keeps the ball down in the zone. Both hurlers have been giving up runs in the postseason and does that trend suddenly stop?
