Kelvin Herrera was 16 years old the last time he stepped into a batter's box in a competitive baseball game. And yet, there he was on Friday night, called upon to bat in a one-run game in the World Series. He promptly struck out on three pitches, but not before fouling off a Sergio Romo fastball.

Before some fans at AT&T Park had even finished taking their seat, Alcides Escobar hammered the first pitch of the game from Tim Hudson for a double. He scored later in the inning on a groundout to give the Royals a lead they'd never surrender in their 3-2 victory in Game 3 of the World Series on Friday.

Brandon Finnegan

After six postseason appearances, rookie southpaw Brandon Finnegan is beginning to look like an old pro, "like he's had five, seven years in the league," according to third baseman Mike Moustakas. But Finnegan admitted to feeling some jitters on Friday night in the Royals' 3-2 win over the Giants in Game 3 of the World Series.

A few hours before World Series Game 3, Michael Morse was sick -- a flu bug, he thinks -- leaving the Giants potentially without their best bench bat in a critical game. Yet by the time manager Bruce Bochy approached him in the middle innings to ask what he could contribute, Morse was feeling well enough to hit.

Jason Vargas' first meaningful outing at AT&T Park coincides with a chance to give his Royals a commanding 3-1 lead in this Fall Classic. It'll come against a Giants team he held to two runs on nine hits in five innings on Aug. 8, a lineup the 31-year-old left-hander called "really good."

Trailing Game 3 of the World Series by one run in the bottom of the eighth inning, the Giants desperately needed a baserunner. They almost got one on a Gregor Blanco bunt, but Statcast shows how a smooth play by Royals catcher Salvador Perez and a poor decision by Blanco helped Kansas City hold on for a 3-2 victory and 2-1 Series lead.

Joe Panik arrived in the big leagues in late July and ended the revolving door at second base in San Francisco, and he said he couldn't have had such a successful run if not for the confidence his manager and teammates have shown in him.
