When Mike Moustakas hit a normal pitch in the 11th he had no idea how hard he had hit it. The ball had just enough juice to float over the fence giving the Royals a 1-0 lead over the Angels as Kansas City won 3-2 in 11 innings.”I knew I hit it pretty good, but that fence out there is pretty tall,” the Los Angeles born Moustakas said. “It’s probably the biggest one I’ve ever hit so far,” said Moustakas “It felt really amazing.”. Game 2 of the best-of-5 series is Friday
In a game that was twice as long as a normal baseball game the Giants outlasted the Nationals 2-1 in 18 innings after Brandon Belt belted a solo shot to win the game “That’s how we do it. On paper, it might not be the flashiest thing, compared to a lot of teams. But I like this group against anybody in baseball,” said Tim Hudson, “Who’d have thought we’d have came here and won the first two? Everybody in America probably didn’t think we had a shot. But everybody in this locker room knew that we did.” It was the longest game in postseason history totaling 6 hours and 23 minutes. The Giants lead the series 2-0.
