Ben Zobrist’s hit began a five-run rally against David Price in the seventh inning. The Royals 6-3 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays on Saturday in Game 2, puts them 2-0 in the American League Championship Series.

Kelvin Herrera breezed through the eighth, and Wade Davis made it through a shaky ninth inning for Kansas City after Luke Hochevar and Danny Duffy were solid in relief of Yordano Ventura.

According to Royals manager Ned Yost “Our guys never quit. They keep going.”

Royals had one hit by Price before stringing together four singles and a double in their go-ahead inning. They got hits from Eric Hosmer, Mike Moustakas, Alex Gordon and Alex Rios that produced runs, with an RBI groundout from Kendrys Morales.

It was an enormous crash for Price, who at one point had recorded 18 straight outs.

The reigning AL champs have won nine straight ALCS games since their memorable seven-game series against Toronto in 1985, that year they won their only World Series. Baltimore has the 10 straight win record of 1960 and 1970.

The Blue Jays are heading home for Game 3 on Monday night. Except from three teams the previous 25 teams to take a 2-0 lead have won the series.

“You got to get a win under your belt,” Blue Jays manager John Gibbons stated. “It won’t be easy, no doubt about that. But you get one win out of the way, it can turn things around in a hurry.”

Till the sixth inning, it looked like the Blue Jays would forge a 1-1 tie.

Ryan Goins scored a run in the third, ending an 18-inning scoreless streak by Royals pitchers, and Edwin Encarnacion and Troy Tulowitzki had RBIs in the sixth.
