Madison Bumgarner tossed seven innings of one-run ball to lead the Giants in a 7-1 victory over the Royals in Game One of the World Series from Kauffman Stadium. Bumgarner allowed just three hits and a walk while striking out five and Hunter Pence hit a two-run homer as part of a three-run first inning. Pablo Sandoval also drove in two for San Francisco, which takes a 1-0 lead in the best-of-seven series.
