FINAL: Royals Take 2-0 ALCS Lead With 6-3 Win Over Blue Jays

The Kansas City Royals looked dead in the water through 6 1/2 innings of Saturday's Game 2 of the ALCS. However, another late-inning magic trick wrested control of the game from the Toronto Blue Jays and a 2-0 series lead in an exhilarating 6-3 Royals win.

Toronto ace David Price was stellar over the first six innings of Game 2, mixing and matching his primary and secondary pitches to keep the Royals off balance. He looked to be on his way to an easy win after being staked a three-run lead thanks to RBI base knocks by Ryan Goins (3rd), Edwin Encarnacion and Troy Tulowitzki (6th).

However, it all fell apart for Price in the seventh. Kansas City singled on four of their first five at-bats in the frame, plating three to tie the game. Then, usual suspect Alex Gordon played the hero with his 3rd career go-ahead RBI in the 7th inning or later of a postseason game, sending Moustakas home with an RBI double.

KC would add two more from there for insurance, but the damage had already been done to Price and a stunned Blue Jays squad

Saturday's loss is the 7th straight playoff loss for David Price. He's the first since Randy Johnson to suffer such a streak.

Toronto will look to get back into the series on Monday when the ALCS shifts back to Canada.
