The Royals went 1-for-11 with runners in scoring position, the only hit being Lorenzo Cain's infield single. After throwing a complete-game shutout in Game 5, Bumgarner threw five more scoreless innings in Game 7 to preserve a one-run lead. "I just missed here and there", he said.

Cueto signed a six-year, $130 million deal with San Francisco before last season, but has an opt-out after this season that could allow him to hit free agency once again. I know that has a lot to do with some things.

That ended Bumgarner's streak of 18 scoreless innings against the Royals, dating to the 2014 World Series opener. He appears likely to do so after a stellar first season by the bay (2.79 ERA in 219.2 innings) and a solid start this year (3.79 ERA and three wins in 19 innings), attempting to secure a deal greater than the $84 million guarantee he would receive over the next four years in San Francisco. "It's just another series for us", Yost said.

Salvador Perez came through in the clutch with a one-out RBI single, and despite the Giants getting Aaron Hill to third in the ninth, they were unable to get to Royals' closer Kelvin Herrera. It wound up finding a hole in the netting behind the plate and struck a fan, and Posey motioned to him to keep it. Posey proceeded to strike out.

C Buster Posey was activated from the seven-day concussion list prior to Tuesday's game.

The last time Giants manager Bruce Bochy was hospitalized for a heart issue, San Francisco needed to survive 14 shaky innings under bench coach Ron Wotus to beat the Miami Marlins.

Giants OF Mac Williamson (quad) began a rehab assignment at Class A San Jose on Wednesday, while OF/1B Michael Morse (hamstring) was batting cleanup as the designated hitter.

The San Francisco Giants will look to rebound after dropping 4 of their last 6 games, including a 4-3 loss in their series finale against the Rockies. Cueto has won his first three starts this season.
