The Kansas City Royals claimed game three of the World Series on Friday night with a 3-2 victory over the San Francisco Giants.
The Royals won it comfortably in the end taking the lead once in the game and never losing it but the Giants did everything they could to take the advantage in the series.
The series is now 2-1 in favour of Kansas City but the next two games will still take place in San Francisco so they are far from safe.
Kansas are now on a two game winning streak in the series after running away with game two, defeating the Giants 7-2.
The Giants in the mean time may have lost their momentum from that four game winning streak which saw them overcome their series with the St Louis Cardinals and take the lead against Kansas City.

The Giants will be desperate for the win in their home stadium which will bring them back on level terms as an impressive performance will tie the series 2-2.
Meanwhile a win for Kansas City will leave them just one win away from being crowned World Champions.
A good night for Kansas
The game was a positive performance from the Royals who started brightly with Alcides Escobar driving the ball deep into left field on the very first pitch.
Escobar would eventually make it home and give the Royals the only score in the first inning after Lorenzo Cain make the hit and grounded at short stop.
Escobar would score again at the top of the sixth this time after Alex Gordon doubled to deep right.
The Royals didn't stop there as they scored their third and what proved to be game winning run again in the sixth through Gordon after Eric Hosmer singled to center.
The sixth inning was by far the biggest of the game as San Francisco gave themselves hope of a big come back, scoring twice in the bottom of the inning.
Brandon Crawford and Michael Morse were the players to make it home for the Giants but they couldn't complete the comeback and fell to a defeat on home turf.
