The Kansas City Royals defeated the Toronto Blue Jays in the American League Championship Series (ALCS) Game 6 at Kauffman Stadium.. The Royals will advance to the World Series for the second straight year against the NLCS undefeated New York Mets.
Kansas City Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer was named the Falken Tires High Performance Player of the Night for driving in the winning run. Hosmer’s well-placed single down the line in the eighth delivered the pennant-clinching run when Lorenzo Cain, who walked on base, scored from first. Davis retired Blue Jays star Josh Donaldson on a grounder with runners on second and third to end Game 6 of the AL Championship Series.
The Royals open the World Series on Tuesday night at home against the New York Mets.
