Royals' season ends 90 feet short in World Series

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) The roars from the field had died away. Kauffman Stadium had fallen silent for the first time all night. In the Royals' clubhouse, Alex Gordon had finally peeled off his dirt-stained jersey.

He had just watched the San Francisco Giants celebrate their third World Series title in five years, capped by a 3-2 victory in Game 7 on Wednesday night. But all he could think about was whether he could have scored the tying run with two outs in the ninth inning.

"It was a good hold," Gordon said, eventually. "Close, but just short."
