Game 2 starters Ventura, Peavy study in contrasts

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) The starting pitchers for Game 2 of the World Series are a study in contrasts.

The Royals will send out rookie Yordano Ventura, the hard-throwing right-hander from the Dominican Republic who grew up idolizing Pedro Martinez and now talks to him just about every day. San Francisco will counter with veteran Jake Peavy, the hired gun from Mobile, Alabama, who helped Boston win the World Series last year.

"A lot of energy, I think, on both sides," said Peavy, pointing out perhaps the one thing they have in common. "We'll have our work cut out for us, for sure."
