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.

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.

The Greyhounds earned their second straight Patriot League win with a 2-0 shutout victory against American University.
With this win, the Hounds improve to 6-8-2 on the season and 2-3-2 in conference play.
Also, this win keeps Loyola alive in the Patriot League with the playoffs starting in 2 weeks.
Senior goalkeeper, Colleen Folan, came up big in the game, shutting down American’s numerous opportunities and recording her eighth clean sheet of the season.
The Hounds look to keep this Patriot League momentum going as they play their last home game of the season on Sunday, October 26th against Navy.

It seems an eternity since Manning threw his first career TD pass to Marvin Harrison back in 1998, but now in 2014 and in the heart of his 17th NFL season, Manning sits at a record 510 career TD passes, a record he will continue to add on to for as long as he plays.
The record-breaking 509th TD pass came with 3:09 remaining in the first half on an 8-yard pass to wide receiver Demaryius Thomas.
When asked about the historical catch, Thomas said, “I thought before the play I might have a chance…I just wanted to make sure I got my feet down. I’m grateful for the chance.”
Manning, a player known for keeping his calm demeanor and his emotions in check, couldn’t help but give a big smile as he saw the official signal for touchdown pass number 509.

What may be even more impressive is that way that they beat Seattle. The Cowboys won using a gameplan that hasn’t appeared in Dallas since they last won a Super Bowl, a gameplan that revolves around balance and physicality.
Dallas’ offensive line is proving that they are one of the best in the league, their defense is being physical at the point of attack and forcing turnovers, running back Demarco Murray is playing like an MVP back, starting with 6-straight 100-plus yard games on the ground, and quarterback Tony Romo is looking sharp and not turning the ball over.

The sweeps were incredibly impressive on both sides, considering that the O’s beat the last 3 AL Cy Young winners in their 3 games, and the Royals were able to hold off the best offensive team in all of baseball.
Baltimore advances with home-field advantage for the ALCS as the AL East Champions, and Kansas City fights their way through Oakland and Los Angeles to advance as the AL Wild Card team.
Even though the O’s were the higher seed in their series, both the O’s and the Royals were the underdogs in their respective ALDS matchup.
Looking ahead to the ALCS between Baltimore and Kansas City, a couple of things stand out: (more…)

This is the Royals’ first trip to the postseason since 1985, when they won the franchise’s only World Series title. They returned to postseason baseball and certainly put on quite a show for all of the baseball fans, eager for even more great games in this postseason.
It didn’t look too promising for the Royals in the 6th inning, when they suddenly found themselves down 7-3 with the momentum tilting fully towards Oakland.
