The Royals defended their home turf in game 6 to force a game 7 in the World Series, thanks to a 10-0 rout of the Giants.
Kansas City never game San Francisco a chance in game 6, as they put 7 runs on the board in the bottom of the 2nd inning, batting through the entire lineup.
Big World Series blowout wins aren’t new to the Royals. They won their only franchise championship in 1985 with an 11-0 win over the St. Louis Cardinals.

Dan Snaith operates in subtleties. And he does it better than everyone else.
Arriving on the electronic scene in the late 90s, the Canadian-born composer turned the so-called IDM (intelligent dance music) movement on its head. This is his game—take what exists, tear it up, make it better. Snaith is permanently evolving and reinventing himself. While guised under the various stage names of Manitoba, Daphni and Caribou he has done everything from shoegaze to krautrock and back again. No matter the name, the project is the always the same for Snaith: to produce fully developed, deconstructed soundscapes to dance to.

This past weekend, Loyola soccer faced two tough tests, with the men playing against the number 20 team in the nation, Boston University, and the women playing their last home game of the season against Navy.
Both teams held strong, earning hard-fought ties, the men’s game ending 1-1, and the women’s game ending in a 0-0 shutout.
The ties are incredibly important for both teams, as it keeps a 4-game shutout streak alive for the women, and makes the men the first team to steal a point from Boston University in the Patriot League this season.
