Kansas City Royals Got What They Needed from Edinson Volquez

If the Kansas City Royals could have asked for something better than Johnny Cueto‘s performance on Wednesday night, they got it in spades yesterday from Edinson Volquez. He erased a chunk of his previous postseason records, where he had given up 12 runs in his previous 12 1/3 innings.

Hitting 97 on the gun, he was living on the edge all night, getting call after call from the home plate umpire, Tony Randazzo. When a pitcher is getting both, what were the Toronto batters thinking by not hacking all night at a pitch located there?
