Arizona Diamondbacks Daily Dose: Royals Are One Win Away


Good Afternoon Arizona Diamondbacks fans and Venom Strikes readers! Happy Daylight Savings Time for all of our readers not located in Arizona. Congratulations on getting an extra hour of sleep. For people that live in Arizona like me, our clocks don’t change.

I hope that everybody’s Halloween went well. I was at work all day but I still got to eat candy and bowl with some of my co-workers. I would have been at a Halloween party but I guess that is how life goes sometimes!

Let me know what you all did last night in the comments section. With that being said, the Kansas City Royals are one win away from their first World Series championship in 30 years after coming back to beat the New York Mets in Game Four, 5-3 thanks in large part to a error by Daniel Murphy, and some bizarre pitching changes made by Mets manager Terry Collins.

Kansas City now lead the series 3-1, and you all know what that means.

The Royals have their minds set on a big celebration tonight. After losing last year’s Fall Classic in seven games to the San Francisco Giants, Kansas City can redeem their fans, their city, and themselves by winning it all tonight. Returning from his father’s funeral, Edinson Volquez takes the ball for the Royals and hopes to accomplish just that.

Matt Harvey (aka the Dark Knight) looks to put a dent in those hopes in front of his home crowd and send the series back to Kansas City for Game 6.

Be sure you’re watching! The game starts at 6:00 P.M. Arizona time and can be seen on FOX.
