ALCS excitement returns to Arian Foster Clothing KC KC for Game 3

ALCS shifts to Kansas Arian Foster Jersey Cheap City with the Royals up 2-0

Kauffman Stadium has not hosted an ALCS game since 1985, so when the Royals ride their six-game postseason winning streak home to face the Orioles for Game 3, they will be the guests of honor at what promises to be the Midwest’s most remarkable party so far this year.

“It’s going to be tremendous,” the Royals’ Billy Butler said. “The atmosphere in the Wild Card Game and the ALDS was Arian Foster Jersey tremendous. I couldn’t imagine it being better, but I think it will be.”

The Royals have not trailed in any of the first 19 innings of this series, a pair of thrilling and taut affairs at Camden Yards. The Orioles had not lost back-to-back games at home since June 28-29, and no team has won a best-of-seven LCS after losing the first two games at home.

Baltimore center fielder Adam Jones wasn’t losing any sleep over those facts during Sunday’s workout in Kansas City, and scoffed at the suggestion that the Orioles’ situation might call for a team meeting to hit the reset button.

“We know what we’re doing, we’re grown men,” Jones said. “We’re not little kids who sit around the circle and play ‘Duck, Duck, Goose.’ We’re just going to approach the game as we approach every game all season and do what we do best.”

Wet conditions are in the forecast for Monday evening, but both clubs are proceeding according to schedule, setting up a Arian Foster Apparel Game 3 pitching matchup of Orioles left-hander Wei-Yin Chen and Royals right-hander Jeremy Guthrie.

“It should make for a good three games,” the Royals’ Eric Hosmer said. “Or, hopefully, two games.”

Chen has pitched well in Kansas City, where he is 1-0 with a Houston Texans Arian Foster NFL Football Uniforms 2.84 ERA in two career starts, and the Orioles would relish seeing some better distance from their starters after Chris Tillman and Bud Norris each logged just 4 1/3 innings in Games 1 and 2, respectively. “For me, I want to keep it simple,” Chen said through an interpreter. “It doesn’t matter to me if we’re ahead or behind. For me, my job is to go out and pitch a good game. It doesn’t change, whether it’s 0-2 or 2-0. I just want to go out and pitch a good game.” Guthrie wore Orioles orange from 2007-11 and said that it feels “serendipitous” to be going up against some of his former teammates now that the organization has arrived back near the top.

“To be in the playoffs with Kansas City is very exciting,” Guthrie said. “And then to come back and play against a team that I played with before makes it even that much more interesting and ironic, I think.” Most of the Royals spoke with care after Game 2, not wanting to stir up back page headlines. But when asked if he expected to come back to Baltimore, outfielder Jarrod Dyson dropped his guard to the Kansas City Star: “No sir, I don’t. And I don’t think that they [the Orioles] think that, either.”

Understandably, that wasn’t a popular opinion in the Baltimore clubhouse. It is no accident that the O’s are among the four teams still Men’s Nike Houston Texans 23 Arian Foster Elite Navy Blue Team Color Jersey standing, and they show no indication that Arian Foster Jersey Number their confidence has been shaken by the two losses.

“I believe that we’ll come back,” Nelson Cruz said. “What’s important is what we believe in here. it doesn’t matter what people think outside from this door. That’s my only answer.”

Royals: Moose’s wild ride
Mike Moustakas was demoted to the Minors in May and struggled mightily when he was back with the Royals in September, but he is making up for it in a huge way here in October.

The 26-year-old crushed his fourth home run of the postseason in the fourth inning of Game 2, connecting with an 87-mph Norris slider and hammering it over the scoreboard in right field.

“I’m just getting good pitches to hit right now,” Moustakas said. “I don’t think much has changed with my swing or anything like that. I’m just getting good pitches and not missing them.”

Moustakas tied Willie Mays Aikens’ 1980 franchise record for homers in a single postseason. Moustakas is also the first No. 9 hitter to homer in four different games in a single postseason and has tied Adam Kennedy and Jason Varitek for the most homers by a No. 9 hitter in postseason history.

Orioles: Jones’ patience rewarded
Jones may be getting his playoff stroke going at just the right time. His third-inning homer off Yordano Ventura in Game 2 marked Jones’ first career postseason extra-base hit, coming in his 11th postseason game.

The Orioles are well acquainted with the impact that Jones can provide on both sides of the ball, but he had been patiently waiting for an October moment like this one. The Baltimore center fielder was 5-for-43 with no extra-base hits in the postseason before the homer.

“I feel better at the plate. I think that’s the key thing, is to be comfortable at the plate,” Jones said.

• Cruz owns 20 career LCS RBIs, good for a 10th-place tie all time with Reggie Jackson and Jim Edmonds. Bernie Williams holds the all-time LCS record with 33 RBIs.

Cardinals seek Custom California Angels Jersey to to solve Giants, even NLCS

Plesac and Floyd on the keys to Game 2 of the NLCS

ST. LOUIS — It is up to Lance Lynn to cut the Giants down to size and get the Cardinals even against Jake Peavy tonight in Game 2 of the National League Championship Series at Busch Stadium. The game can be viewed Customized Los Angeles Angels Jersey on FOX Sports 1 at 8 p.m. ET.

Peavy, delighted for another shot at a World Series ring after claiming one with the Red Sox last season, takes the ball from manager Bruce Bochy in the hopes of replicating Madison Bumgarner’s dominant effort in a 3-0 Game 1 victory by San Francisco.

“Lance is fairly young [at 27], but he’s been with the St. Louis Cardinals, he’s been in these situations before,” Peavy said. “With that experience, I’m sure he’s going to give us all we can handle tomorrow night.”

Peavy and Lynn are both coming off quality efforts in the NL Division Series. Peavy shut out the Nationals through 5 2/3 innings for a victory in Game 1 at Washington, while Lynn held the Dodgers to two runs over six innings in a Game 2 loss at Los Angeles.

World Series champions in 2010 and ’12, the Custom Angels Shirts Giants are riding a seven-game road winning streak in postseason play and have won 15 of the past 19 on the road during their run of excellence in October.

The Cardinals, World Series champions in 2011, have dropped four consecutive NLCS games to the Giants since surging to a 3-1 lead in the 2012 series.

Peavy, who matured as a star under Giants manager Bruce Bochy when they were together with the Padres, quickly took a liking to San Francisco and has been lights out since leaving Boston in a July 26 trade.

The NL Cy Young Award winner in 2007 with Bochy in San Diego, Peavy is 6-4 with a 2.17 ERA in 12 starts with the Giants this year after going 1-9 with a 4.72 ERA with the Red Sox. The righty credits pitching coach Dave Righetti with ironing out a few things in his delivery and catcher Buster Posey for helping him find his groove.

“I got with Dave Righetti, and Rags saw me as a young kid and watched me so many times when I was young and on track, so to speak,” Peavy said. “We tweaked just a few things. It really wasn’t anything major, but it’s made a world of difference.

“Buster Posey is a unique individual and a unique player. When you find the right chemistry and groove with a good player like that, who cares and plays that position, it can take your game to another level. And he can get the most out of you.”

Lynn, who was 15-10 for the second year in a row while shaving his ERA from 3.97 to 2.74, also works with one of the game’s premier receivers in Yadier Molina.

“I’ll still say he’s probably one of the most underrated pitchers in the game with what he’s been able to do,” Cards manager Mike Matheny said of Lynn.

Held to four hits by Bumgarner and two relievers in the opener, the Cards will try to jump-start an offense that exploded in the NLDS against Clayton Kershaw and the Dodgers.

“This time of year,” Matheny said, “it comes down to the hot team, and it also comes down to hot hitters.”

Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval — with a double, two singles and a walk — almost matched the Cards’ Game 1 offense by himself. Jon Jay had two of St. Louis’ hits.

After pounding seven homers — three by Matt Carpenter — and six doubles in the NLDS against the Dodgers, the Cards did not collect an extra-base hit against Bumgarner, Sergio Romo and Santiago Casilla.

“I’ve been through this lineup, seen more Carpenter at-bats than I probably want to see,” Peavy said. “I’ll see some more before we really nail down the game plan. We’ve watched these guys up and down. They’re a lot like us — a bunch of grinders, a bunch of professional at-bats that [they] are going to have.”

Giants: Sandoval on another Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Authentic Personalized Alternate Red Cool Base Jersey roll
Beware of “The Panda.” It is October, and Pablo Sandoval is hungry again for base hits and victories.

Sandoval, who won the Women’s Majestic Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Customized Authentic Alternate Red Jersey 2012 World Series Most Valuable Player Award in the afterglow of his three-homer epic performance in Game 1, appears intent on writing another postseason chapter with his bat. His 3-for-4 night in Game 1 has him hitting .333 through six postseason games.

“Man, [it’s] exciting to be in October,” Sandoval said. “Last year I was home watching the game on TV.”

What’s Panda’s approach this postseason?

“Have fun no matter what the situation, what the score, what the game, the type of game you play,” he said. “So just have fun out there.”

Cardinals: Jay showing the way
With a pair of singles around getting hit by a Bumgarner pitch, Jay did his part to get the Cardinals’ offense rolling in Game 1. The versatile outfielder is on fire in the postseason, with seven hits, all singles, in 13 at-bats.

Jay is picking up where he left off in the regular season, when he batted .303 with a .372 on-base percentage in 140 games. The Cards are looking for the heart of the order — Matt Holliday, Jhonny Peralta, Matt Adams and Yadier Molina — to rebound after going a combined 1-for-15 in the series opener.

“They have had some great wins, some tough losses,” Matheny said of his Redbirds. “They have been very resilient about coming back the next day and getting back to business and taking care of what they can take care of and not trying to win two games tomorrow. We’ve got an opportunity to come back and play a better baseball game, and I’m certain that’s what we’ll do.”

Worth noting
• The Giants’ 21-14 record and .600 winning percentage in NLCS play is the best among all NL teams. They have won 12 of their past 13 postseason games, 16 of the past 20 and 26 of 35. Starting with their 2010 run to the World Series title, the Giants are 27-10 in the postseason.
• Molina’s 88 career postseason hits match former teammate Albert Pujols for the most in franchise history. Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Authentic Personalized 2013 Road Gray Cool Base Jersey Molina is a .289 career hitter in postseason play, tied for seventh best in franchise history and sixth best among all catchers.
Custom Made Angels Jersey The Cards dropped a Game 1 in the NLCS at home for the first time since 2002, when they fell to the Giants. St. Louis had prevailed in 2004, ’05 and ’13.

Jadeveon Clowney Jersey The Orioles had not lost back-to-back games at home since June 28-29, and no team has won a best-of-seven LCS after losing the first two games at home.

Baltimore center fielder Adam Jones wasn’t losing any sleep over those facts during Sunday’s workout in Kansas City, and scoffed at the suggestion that the Orioles’ situation might call for a team meeting to hit the reset button.

“We know what we’re doing, we’re grown men,” Jones said. “We’re not little kids who sit around the circle and play ‘Duck, Duck, Goose.’ We’re just going to approach the game as we approach every game all season and do what we do best.”

Wet conditions are in the forecast for Monday evening, but both clubs are proceeding according to schedule, setting up a Game 3 pitching matchup of Orioles left-hander Wei-Yin Chen and Royals right-hander Jeremy Guthrie.

“It should make for a good Jadeveon Clowney Jersey for Sale three games,” the Royals’ Eric Hosmer said. “Or, hopefully, two games.”

Chen has pitched well in Kansas City, where he is 1-0 with a 2.84 ERA in two career starts, and the Orioles would relish seeing some Men’s Nike South Carolina Gamecocks Garnet Jadeveon Clowney Authentic Football Jersey Red better distance from their starters after Chris Tillman and Bud Norris each logged just 4 1/3 innings in Games 1 and 2, respectively. “For me, I want to keep it simple,” Chen said through an interpreter. “It doesn’t matter to me if we’re ahead or behind. For me, my job is to go out and pitch a good game. It doesn’t change, whether it’s 0-2 or 2-0. I just want to go out and pitch a good game.” Guthrie wore Orioles orange from 2007-11 and said that it feels “serendipitous” to be going up against some of his former teammates now that the organization has arrived back near the top.

“To be in the playoffs with Kansas City is very exciting,” Guthrie said. “And then to come back and play against a team that I played with before makes it even that much more interesting and ironic, I think.” Most of the Royals spoke with care after Game 2, not wanting to stir up back page headlines. But when asked if he expected to come back to Baltimore, outfielder Jarrod Dyson dropped his guard to the Kansas City Star: “No sir, I don’t. And I don’t think that they [the Orioles] think that, either.”

Understandably, that wasn’t a popular opinion in the Baltimore clubhouse. It is no accident that the O’s are among the four teams still standing, and they show no indication that their confidence has been shaken by the two losses.

“I believe that we’ll come back,” Nelson Cruz said. “What’s important is what we believe in here. it doesn’t matter what people think outside from this door. That’s my only answer.”

Royals: Moose’s wild ride
Mike Moustakas was demoted to the Minors in May and struggled mightily when he was back with the Royals in September, but he is making up for it in a huge way here in October.

The 26-year-old crushed his fourth home run of the postseason in the fourth inning Men’s Nike South Carolina Gamecocks Garnet Jadeveon Clowney Authentic Black Football Jersey of Game 2, connecting with an 87-mph Norris slider and hammering it over the scoreboard in right field.

“I’m just getting good pitches to hit right now,” Moustakas said. “I don’t think much has changed with my swing or anything like that. I’m just getting good pitches and not missing them.”

Moustakas tied Willie Mays Aikens’ 1980 franchise record for homers in a single postseason. Moustakas is also the first No. 9 hitter to homer in four different games in a single postseason and has tied Adam Kennedy and Jason Varitek for the most homers by a No. 9 hitter in postseason history.

Orioles: Jones’ patience rewarded
Jones may be getting his playoff stroke going at just the right time. His third-inning homer off Yordano Ventura in Game 2 marked Jones’ first career postseason extra-base hit, coming in his 11th postseason game.

The Orioles are well acquainted with the impact that Jones can provide on both sides of the ball, but he had been patiently waiting for an October moment like this one. The Baltimore center fielder was 5-for-43 with no extra-base hits in the postseason before the homer.

“I feel better at the plate. I think that’s the key thing, is to be comfortable at the plate,” Jones said.

Cardinals seek to solve Men’s Nike Houston Texans 58 Brooks Reed 10th Anniversary Elite Battle Red Alternate Jersey Giants, Giants, even NLCS

Plesac and Floyd on the keys to Game 2 of the NLCS

ST. LOUIS — It is up to Lance Lynn to cut the Giants down to size and get the Cardinals even against Jake Peavy tonight in Game 2 of the National League Championship Series at Busch Stadium. The game can be viewed on FOX Sports 1 at 8 p.m. ET.

Peavy, delighted for another shot at a World Series ring after claiming one with the Red Sox last season, takes the ball from manager Bruce Bochy in the hopes of replicating Madison Bumgarner’s dominant effort in a 3-0 Game 1 victory by San Francisco.

“Lance is fairly young [at 27], but he’s been with the St. Louis Cardinals, he’s been in these situations before,” Peavy said. “With that experience, I’m sure he’s going to give Men’s Nike Houston Texans 58 Brooks Reed 10th Anniversary Elite Battle Red Alternate Jersey us all we can handle tomorrow night.”

Peavy and Lynn are both coming off quality efforts in the NL Division Series. Peavy shut out the Nationals through 5 2/3 innings for a victory in Game 1 at Washington, while Lynn held the Dodgers to two runs over six innings in a Game 2 loss at Los Angeles.

World Series champions in 2010 and ’12, the Giants are riding a seven-game road winning streak in postseason play and have won 15 of the past 19 on the road during their run of excellence in October.

The Cardinals, World Series champions in 2011, have dropped four consecutive NLCS games to the Giants since surging to a 3-1 lead in the 2012 series.

Peavy, who matured as a star under Giants manager Bruce Bochy when they were together with the Padres, quickly took a liking to San Francisco and has been lights out since leaving Boston in a July 26 trade.

The NL Cy Young Award winner in 2007 with Bochy in San Diego, Peavy is 6-4 with a 2.17 ERA in 12 starts with the Giants this year after going 1-9 with Brooks Reed Texans Shirts a 4.72 ERA with the Red Sox. The righty credits pitching coach Dave Righetti with ironing out a few things in his delivery and catcher Buster Posey for helping him find his groove.

“I got with Dave Righetti, and Rags saw me as a young kid and watched me so many times when I was young and on track, so to speak,” Peavy said. “We tweaked just a few things. It really wasn’t anything major, but it’s made a world of difference.

“Buster Posey is a unique individual and a unique player. When you find the right chemistry and groove with a good player like that, who cares and plays that position, it can take your game to another level. And he can get the most out of you.”

Lynn, who was 15-10 for the second year in a row while shaving his ERA from 3.97 to Brooks Reed NFL Football Uniforms 2.74, also works with one of the game’s premier receivers in Yadier Molina.

“I’ll still say he’s probably one of the most underrated pitchers in the game with what he’s been able to do,” Cards manager Mike Matheny said of Lynn.

Held to four hits by Bumgarner and two relievers in the opener, the Cards will try to jump-start an offense that exploded in the NLDS against Clayton Kershaw and the Dodgers.

“This time of year,” Matheny said, “it comes down to the hot team, and it also comes down to hot hitters.”

Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval — with a double, two singles and a walk — almost matched the Cards’ Game 1 offense by himself. Jon Jay had two of St. Louis’ hits.

After pounding seven homers — three by Matt Carpenter — and six doubles in the NLDS against the Dodgers, the Cards did not collect an extra-base hit against Bumgarner, Sergio Romo and Santiago Casilla.

“I’ve been through this lineup, seen more Carpenter at-bats than I probably want to see,” Peavy said. “I’ll see some more before we really nail down the game plan. We’ve watched these guys up and down. They’re a lot like us — a bunch of grinders, a bunch of professional at-bats that [they] are going to have.”

Giants: Sandoval on another roll
Beware of “The Panda.” It is October, and Pablo Sandoval is hungry again for base hits and victories.

Sandoval, who won the 2012 World Series Most Valuable Player Award in the afterglow of his Brooks Reed Women’s Jersey three-homer epic performance in Game 1, appears intent on writing another postseason chapter with his bat. His 3-for-4 night in Game 1 has him hitting .333 through six postseason games.

“Man, [it’s] exciting to be in October,” Sandoval said. “Last year I was home watching the game on TV.”

What’s Panda’s approach this postseason?

“Have fun Brooks Reed Jersey Cheap no matter what the situation, what the score, what the game, the type of game you play,” he said. “So just have fun out there.”

Cardinals: Jay showing the way
With a pair of singles around getting hit by a Bumgarner pitch, Jay did his part to get the Cardinals’ offense rolling in Game 1. The versatile outfielder is on fire in the postseason, with seven hits, all singles, in 13 at-bats.

Jay is picking up where he left off in the regular season, when he batted .303 with a .372 on-base percentage in 140 games. The Cards are looking for the heart of the order — Matt Holliday, Jhonny Peralta, Matt Adams and Yadier Molina — to rebound after going a combined 1-for-15 in the series opener.

“They have had some great wins, some tough losses,” Matheny said of his Redbirds. “They have been very resilient about coming back the next day and getting back to business and taking care of what they can take care of and not trying to win two games tomorrow. We’ve got an opportunity to come back and play a better baseball game, and I’m certain that’s what we’ll do.”

Worth noting
• The Giants’ 21-14 record and .600 winning percentage in NLCS play is the best among all NL teams. They have won 12 of their past 13 postseason games, 16 of the past 20 and 26 of 35. Starting with their 2010 run to the World Series title, the Giants are 27-10 in the postseason.
• Molina’s 88 career postseason hits match former teammate Albert Pujols for the most in franchise history. Molina is a .289 career hitter in postseason play, tied for seventh best in franchise Brooks Reed Jersey history and sixth best among all catchers.
• The Cards dropped a Game 1 in the NLCS at home for the first time since 2002, when they fell to the Giants. St. Louis had prevailed in 2004, ’05 and ’13.
