Kelvin Herrera had his first major league at-bat in Game 3 of the World Series.

It is hard to believe the Royals are leading the World Series after giving a relief pitcher his first big league at-bat in a one-run game. Herrera struck out on three pitches.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Ryan Vogelsong will start Game 4 of the World Series and Madison Bumgarner will start Game 5.

There were some reports prior to Game 3 that suggested Bumgarner would start Game 4 if the Giants lost, but that will not be the case. Bumgarner has never pitched on short rest, which he would have to do in order to start Game 4. He would be available out of the bullpen if there is a Game 7.

Mike Morse had a pinch-hit RBI-double and scored a run during the Giants' Game 3 loss to the Royals in the World Series on Friday.

Morse has done much of his damage in the postseason as a pinch hitter, though he started games 1 and 2 of the World Series as the Giants designated hitter. Morse will likely continue to come off the bench unless the series returns to Kansas City.

Alcides Escobar went 2-for-4 with a double and two runs scored during the Royals' 3-2 win over the Giants in Game 3 of the World Series.

Escobar provided most of the offense Friday night as the Royals scored all three of their runs against Giants starter Tim Hudson. Escobar is batting .313/.327/.458 in the playoffs with seven runs scored.

Greg Holland earned his first save in the World Series after he threw a perfect inning to close out the Royals' 3-2 win over the Giants in Game 3.

Holland now has seven saves and a 0.90 ERA in the postseason. Holland and three other relievers combined to shut down the Giants after Jeremy Guthrie left in the sixth inning with a 3-2 lead.

Jeremy Guthrie earned the win after he allowed two runs on four hits with no walks or strikeouts over five innings as the Royals beat the Giants 3-2 in Game 3 of the World Series.

Guthrie held the Giants scoreless through five innings, including a stretch of 10 consecutive batters retired at one point. He allowed both runs in the sixth, though the bullpen was able to preserve Kansas City's one-run lead. Guthrie was the first starting pitcher to go five innings in the World Series without a walk or strikeout since Greg Maddux in 1996.

GM Terry Ryan confirmed Miguel Sano will not play winter ball.

Sano is still recovering from Tommy John surgery after tearing his UCL early in 2014. While a TJ surgery's recovery time is significantly shorter than the normal one year timetable for a pitcher, Sano still won't be ready for Winter Ball. After the Twins' other top prospect, Byron Buxton, stumbled through a injury plagued minor league season, Minnesota may be more cautious with the 21-year old Sano, who is known for his massive raw power. Because he's not going to be able to play winter ball, the possibility of Sano getting called up to the majors at some point next summer is looking very unlikely.

James Shields said he has been flying open in his delivery and rushing to the plate, causing his pitches to flatten out.

Shields has been dreadful this postseason, giving up 15 runs over just 19 innings (7.11 ERA). Hopefully the change in mechanics will give his pitches some life, leading to less hard contact. The Royals will count on Shields later in the World Series, so this mechanics fix could have a huge impact on the course of the series.
