Bumgarner, Pence helps Giants lead Royals 5-0

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Hunter Pence hit a two-run homer off James Shields in a three-run first that silenced the crowd at Kansas City's first World Series game in 29 years, Madison Bumgarner pitched two-hit ball and the San Francisco Giants led the Royals 5-0 after six innings in Tuesday night's opener.

Kansas City became the first team to start a postseason 8-0 and entered with 11 consecutive postseason wins, one shy of the record set by Yankees from 1927-32 and 1998-99. And the Royals swept the Giants during a three-game series from Aug. 8-10.

But whatever momentum Kansas City had quickly dissipated on a warm autumn evening as Bumgarner extended his Series scoreless streak to 21 innings - the second-longest at the start of a pitcher's Series career behind Christy Mathewson's 31 for the New York Giants from 1905-11. Bumgarner ran his record postseason road scoreless streak to 32 2-3 innings.
