The Yankees come out with their backs against the wall and score the first run of the game as Reggie Jackson singles in Bucky Dent. The Royals would answer with 3 huge runs in the 2nd as Frank White would rip a John fastball over the left field wall for a 3 run homer. The Royals would keep pounding the ball in the 3rd as they would put up 5 more runs. Hal McRae hits a double to drive in George Brett, White drives in 2 more with a single and Willie Wilson drives in White.
The Royals would keep piling it on in the 5th with another 2 spot. Darrell Porter with a solo homer off Ron Davis the big hit. With the score 9-1, Splitorff would take care of the rest allowing only one more run in the complete game win. Royals sweep 3-0. The Royals celebrate on the infield of Yankee Stadium as they move onto the World Series to face either the Astros or the Phillies.
