KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Kansas City Royals kept waiting for Blue Jays ace David Price to give them some hope.
It turned out to be Toronto’s leaky defense that provided it.
After managing one hit over six innings, Ben Zobrist’s easy fly that somehow fell for a hit began a five-run rally against Price in the seventh inning Saturday. The Royals rolled the rest of the way to a 6-3 victory over Toronto and a 2-0 lead in the AL Championship Series.
“We needed to catch a break,” the Royals’ Alex Gordon said, “and Zobrist’s ball was it.”
