Kansas - The Kansas City Royals have reached the World Series of Major League Baseball (MLB) for the first time since 1985 again. The Royals won at home against the Baltimore Orioles with 2: 1 and decided the semi-final series thus surprising significantly with 4: 0 for itself.

It was the eighth victory in eight games this playoffs for the team of coach Ned Yost. So successful was never previously a club started in the MLB knockout stages.

The final opponent will be determined between the San Francisco Giants and St. Louis Cardinals runner. The Californians lead after four games with 3: 1 wins and can move with a home win on Thursday for the third time since 2010 in the final series. Thus, the champion of 2010 and 2012 would prevent a repeat of the World Series in 1985, when Kansas City with 4: 3 prevailed against St. Louis. The Royals had not reached the playoffs since winning the title 29 years ago.
