KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — With more dominant defense, an opportunistic offense that plated two runs in the first inning and a bullpen that shut down the Baltimore Orioles once again, Greg Holland and the Kansas City Royals wrapped up a four-game sweep of the American League Championship Series with a 2-1 victory on Wednesday. Next stop: the Royals' first World Series appearance since 1985, when the team last made the playoffs. Kansas City hosts the first two games of the October Classic beginning Tuesday against the winner of the National League Championship Series between the San Francisco Giants and St. Louis Cardinals. Jason Vargas combined with three relievers on a four-hitter, with Holland earning his fourth save of the ALCS. It was the first time the American League East champion Orioles have been swept in 21 postseason series.
