Fall 2014 Day 12:
On Tuesday 21 October, the San Francisco Giants scored three runs in the top of the first inning against the Royals in Kansas City, and went on to prevail 7-runs-1 to take a 1-game-nil lead in the 2014 World Series. Game 2 is Wednesday 22 October in Kansas City

Rarity[!] and Implications of Lopsidedness:
The 7-runs-1 victory by the San Francisco Giants in 2014 World Series Game 1 is the most one-sided best-of-7 World Series Game 1 victory since the Boston Red Sox hosted and defeated the St. Louis Cardinals 8-runs-1 as long ago as Game 1 of the 2013 World Series. In the history of best-of-7 World Series Game 1, the team winning by six runs has a 2-3 series record, with an active three-series losing streak.

Earliest of Troikas:
The three runs plated by the San Francisco Giants in the top of the first inning of 2014 World Series Game 1 are the most in the top of the first inning of a World Series Game 1 since the Baltimore Orioles also scored three top-of-the-first-inning runs against the Dodgers in Los Angeles to begin the 1966 World Series (which Baltimore won in four games).

Mid-Game Five-Runs-Nil:
Game 1 of the 2014 World Series is only the second best-of-7 World Series Game 1 in which the road team led 5-runs-nil after the top of the fourth inning through the bottom of the sixth inning; the first was 1963 World Series Game 1, in which the Los Angeles Dodgers did so against the Yankees in New York (Los Angeles won the 1963 World Series in four games).
