After the Royals’ postseason winning streak was snapped Tuesday and the Giants led off Wednesday’s game with a home run, one could excuse Royals fans for thinking the glow around this season was finally dimming.

But Kansas City quickly recovered, and had the game even, 2-2, before tearing through Giants pitcher after Giants pitcher in the sixth inning and handing the ball to their dominant bullpen. The 7-2 win evened the World Series at one win per team.

The Royals’ big inning included a two-run home run by second-baseman Omar Infante off Giants rookie Hunter Strickland. The rookie has now given up five home runs in five innings of postseason relief, tying a record, and got into a shouting match with Salvador Perez as the Royals catcher crossed home plate ahead of Infante.

Here’s the play-by-play of the bottom of the sixth from MLB.com:

1. Lorenzo Cain singles on a soft fly ball to center fielder Gregor Blanco.

2. Eric Hosmer walks. Lorenzo Cain to 2nd.
