SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- The Kansas City Royals try for their third straight win in the World Series tonight as they hope to build on last night's 3-2 victory. The win gave the American League champs a 2-1 series lead.
The weather forecast is iffy as the National Weather Service is calling for a 60 percent chance of showers by game time.
It's Ryan Vogelsong on the mound for the Giants against Jason Vargas for the Royals.
UNDATED (AP) -- Mississippi State, the top team in The AP poll, is in Lexington, Kentucky, this afternoon for a game with the Wildcats. State began the day with a record of 6-0 while Kentucky is 5-2.
Third-ranked and undefeated Mississippi travels to Baton Rouge for a tough test tonight against 24th-ranked LSU. Ole Miss is firmly in the race for a Southeastern Conference title and a spot in the four-team college football playoff, but a stumble against the Tigers would at least dent the Rebels' hopes of accomplishing both. LSU maintains slim hopes of getting back into the SEC West race, knowing it'll have to win its last four league games -- and get some help -- in order to climb up the standings
In other Top-5 matchups today:
-- Fourth-ranked Alabama is at Tennessee tonight. Alabama likely must win this game to keep its hopes of reaching the College Football Playoff alive. A victory would help the Crimson Tide remain just behind No. 1 Mississippi State and No. 3 Mississippi in the SEC West.
-- Fifth-ranked Auburn hosts 4-3 South Carolina tonight. The Tigers are trying to rebound from a loss to No. 1 Mississippi State two weeks ago and might need to win out to have a shot at capturing the SEC West title and making the College Football Playoff. South Carolina is trying to snap a two-game SEC losing streak
UNDATED (AP) -- Defensive tackle Gerald McCoy has signed a seven-year extension with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The $98 million deal makes McCoy the highest-paid player at his position. A 2013 All-Pro, McCoy will get $51.5 million guaranteed, the most ever given to a defensive tackle in NFL history. His new deal will average $14 million per year.
FRANKLIN, Tenn. (AP) -- Running back Shonn Greene of the Titans was arrested for allegedly parking in a handicapped space and speeding away when an officer was issuing him a citation. Franklin, Tennessee police Sgt. Charles Warner says Greene surrendered Friday night after being told warrants had been obtained for his arrest. Greene was released on $2,000 bond. He is due in court Nov. 13.
UNDATED (AP) -- At 7-1, the Montreal Canadiens are off to their best start since 1977. The Habs try to keep it going tonight when they host the New York Rangers at Bell Centre. The Rangers are 4-3.
The Boston Bruins, who will be without captain and defenseman Zdeno Chara (ZAY'-noh CHAH'-rah) for four to six weeks, visit Toronto tonight to play the Maple Leafs. Chara tore the posterior cruciate ligament in his left knee Thursday but will not need surgery.
Nashville, the last undefeated team at 5-0-2, is home against the 3-2-1 Pittsburgh Penguins.
Elsewhere the New Jersey Devils visit Ottawa, Dallas is at the New York Islanders, Detroit visits Philadelphia, Chicago is at St. Louis, Minnesota hosts Tampa Bay, Florida is at Arizona and the Washington Capitals are at Calgary.
In the lone day game the San Jose Sharks are home to the Buffalo Sabres.
ST. SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. (AP) -- Three players share the early third-round lead at the PGA's McGladrey Classic in South Carolina. Will MacKenzie, Andrew Svoboda and Russell Henley were all 11-under after nine holes of play.
CHAMPIONS TOUR-SAN ANTONIO
SAN ANTONIO (AP) -- John Cook and Marco Dawson enter second-round play tied for the lead in the Champions Tour's AT&T Championship, the final full-field event of the season.
Scott Dunlap was a stroke back at TPC San Antonio. Jay Haas, Guy Boros, Bart Bryant, Gary Hallberg, Tom Lehman, Peter Senior, Wes Short Jr., and Kirk Triplett are two off the lead.
HAINAN ISLAND, China (AP) -- American Jessica Korda is the leader after two rounds of the rain-shortened LPGA event in China. She rebounded from an opening hole double bogey for a share of the lead with South Africa's Lee-Anne Pace. They stand 11-under-par.
American's Michelle Wie (wee) and Brittany Lang will start the last round at 9-under.
SINGAPORE (AP) -- Serena Williams is in the final of the WTA Finals after beating Caroline Wozniacki (wohz-nee-AK'-ee) in a third-set tiebreaker, 2-6, 6-3, 7-6. Williams remains on course for a third-straight title in the season-ending championships.
Her opponent in Sunday's final will be Simona Halep (HAL'-ehp), who beat Williams 6-0, 6-2 early in the round-robin tournament. The loss was the American's most lopsided defeat in 16 years.
