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.

Moises Sierra was claimed on waivers by the Royals.

Sierra was waived by the White Sox, after hitting .276 with three stolen bases and two home runs over 127 at bats. He also spent time in triple-A, but actually performed worse in the minors. He's got decent pop and speed, so hopefully he can use those tools to his advantage, but doesn't have much more upside than as a utility player in the majors.

Madison Bumgarner did not throw a bullpen between starts because he wants to leave his options open, to be ready for Game 4 id he is needed.

Manager Bruce Bochy said that while Ryan Vogelsong is slated to pitch in game four, there is the option for Bumgarner to instead pitch. The decision will likely be based upon the outcome of tonight's game, but if the Giants lose, there's a good chance that Bumgarner gets the ball for Game 4.
