good morning from kauffman stadium. we begin on an ominous note because no team on the road has won a game 7 of the world series since the pittsburgh pirates and you have to go back to 1979. that's why last night's game 6 was so critical for san francisco. jake peavy was so good in the regular season for the giants, not last night. 2-0 kansas city in the second with a base hit past pablo sandoval. peavy hit the showers with the bases loaded. he only got four out last night! not much better for petit. kansas city scored 7 in the
6:24 am
