The Kansas City Royals will be making an appearance in the World Series for the second straight year.

Kansas City defeated the Toronto Blue Jays in game six of the American League Championship Series (ALCS) four to three.

Game six started out hot for the Royals as Ben Zobrist hit a solo home run to make the score one to zero in the bottom of the first inning.

In the bottom of the second inning Mike Moustakas hit another solo home run to make the score two to zero.

The shutout did not last long as in the top of fourth José Bautista hit home run for the Toronto to make the score two to one.

It then turned into a pitching duel until the bottom of the seventh inning when Moustakas hit a RBI (run batted in) single to make the score three to one.

Bautista came back in the top of eighth and hit a two run home run to tie the game up at three.

Mother Nature had a word in it with a 45-minute rain delay.

Following the rain delay the Royals came out and got a run to make the score four to three after an Eric Hosmer single that scored Lorenzo Cain.

That would be the game after the Blue Jays left two runners on third and second base.

The Kansas City Royals will be playing the New York Mets in the World Series with the first game on Tuesday October 27 at Kauffman Stadium.
