The most exciting two words in sports: Game Seven, the Kansas City Royals destroy the San Francisco Giants 10-0 in game six on Tuesday night to force one final game to settle the World Series.
After 2,457 baseball games, we are left with a single game to decide this year's champions and in a season of such unparalleled parity, it seems only fair that this is way that the World Series will end.
These two marvellous and imprecise baseball teams will have on more shot at glory.
The Giants had an opportunity to seal a third title in five seasons but were on the wrong out of a 10-0 rout on Tuesday night as the Royals were lead by the arm of a 23-year-old rookie, Yordano Ventura.
The margins in statistical categories are incredibly tight as we prepare for a final game as both teams continue to match one another blow for blow, we are presented with those magical words, Game Seven.

- World Series catchers Posey and Perez creating buzz with fashion choices
- Kansas City Royals claim game three, but only just
All comes down to this
Giants Hunter Pearce spoke after the defeat and explained: "We have a beautiful opportunity, It's a special occasion. And hopefully, everybody enjoys it."
Giants manager Bruce Bochy exclaimed: "Do or die"
Whilst Royals' Billy Butler added: "Winner takes all"
No one can predict the outcome and the glorious season has just been added an extra sense of magic with the series being concluded in the only way that seems fitting, a final game that will allow one team to emerge victorious.
Wednesday night will lay the stage for either team to make history in their own right, the Royals looking for their first title since 1985 whilst the Giants are in the midst of what could be claimed as a dynasty after their five years at the top of baseball.
The two teams are certainly a toss-up, the Royals may have won one more game during the regular season and lost two fewer come the post-season but over the long, viscous season in the major league, those advantages are basically non-existent after 176 and 178 games for both teams.
Pitching battles will ensue, a chance for sluggers to put their names in lights as the clutch performers of a World Series game seven.
There have been blowouts throughout the series but you can sure bet that this will be a nail-biter right up until the climax until we can finally crown this years World Series winner.
