KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Following a five-day rest since wrapping up the American League championship, the Kansas City Royals showed up flat in last night's opening game of the World Series. With a shorter break, the NL champion Giants came out smoking and they walked off the field with a 7-1 victory.

Madison Bumgarner continued his post-season mastery, going seven innings, allowing just three hits and striking out five.

His counterpart, Royals starter James Shields, gave up seven hits and five runs in just three innings of work.

On tap tonight for the second game of the best-of-seven series the Royals will send Yordano Ventura to the mound against Jake Peavy (PEE'-vee). Ventura was 14-10 during the season and left his last start, against the Orioles in the ALCS, with shoulder tightness. Peavy went 7-13 but has loads of postseason experience as this is his eighth playoff start. He pitched for the world champion Red Sox last season.

Following tonight's game the two clubs will shift to San Francisco for Games 3, 4 and, if need be, 5. The third game will be played Friday night in the City by the Bay.


UNDATED (AP) -- The Maple Leafs and Senators were scheduled to face-off tonight in Ottawa but because of shootings today in that city the game has been postponed. A gunman shot and killed a Canadian soldier standing guard at a war memorial in the country's capital, then entered Parliament, where dozens of shots rang out, according to police and witnesses.


ASHBURN, VA. (AP) -- Redskins' coach Jay Gruden (GROO'-dehn) says there's a chance that injured starting quarterback Robert Griffin III might be able to play in Monday night's game with Dallas. For now, Colt McCoy will start the game but Gruden says Griffin is a "wild card."

Gruden says Griffin still needs to be cleared for full contact and satisfy the coaches that he's ready in order to play.


INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Colts linebacker Erik Walden has been fined $27,562 after being ejected for making contact with an official during Sunday's victory over Cincinnati. Walden says he was trying to move around umpire Bruce Stritesky and that he didn't mean to bump into him.

Indianapolis, which led 10-0 at the time of the incident, beat Cincinnati 27-0 for its fifth consecutive victory.


NEW YORK (AP) -- By a vote of 17-13 the NBA owners have voted down proposed changes to the league's draft lottery system. Earlier in the week there appeared to be enough support for reforms that would make it more difficult for teams with the worst records to secure the top pick in the draft.

The vote means the existing system will remain in place for now. The team with the worst record will still have a 25 percent chance at getting the top pick and cannot drop lower than fourth.


ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- Georgia, the ninth-ranked team in The Associated Press Top-25 poll, says it will file a request with the NCAA for tailback Todd Gurley's eligibility to be reinstated. Gurley has been suspended for the last two games while Georgia investigated allegations he broke NCAA rules by receiving improper benefits. Coach Mark Richt (rihkt) has confirmed the allegations involved autographs.

Despite playing without Gurley, who was considered a leading Heisman Trophy candidate before the suspension, the Bulldogs have racked up a record of 6-1. They have this week off and then a game against Florida next week.


SINGAPORE (AP) -- Serena Williams has suffered one of the most lopsided losses in her career as she was routed 6-0, 6-2 by Simona Halep (HAL'-ehp) at the WTA Finals in Singapore. The last time Williams, who has won 18 Grand Slam tournaments, managed to win just two games in a WTA Tour or Grand Slam match was in 1998 when she was 16.

The loss in the round-robin match snapped Williams' 16-match winning streak at the year-end championships, where she is the two-time defending champion.

Williams calls the one-sided loss to Halep "very embarrassing."
