Heading into Wednesday night's Game 7 World Series matchup between the Kansas City Royals and San Francisco Giants, it was either going to be the team of destiny or the team of dynasty walking away with baseball's richest prize.

Both starters in the game- Tim Hudson and Jeremy Guthrie- didn't get out of the fourth inning. Hudson was lifted out of the second inning after he allowed the Royals to tie the game.
