SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- The Kansas City Royals got another solid performance from their bullpen on Friday to take a two-games-to-one lead in the World Series.
Royals relievers tossed four hitless innings to lead a 3-2 win over the Giants in San Francisco. Kelvin (KEHL'-veen) Herrera worked out of a sixth-inning jam before Herrera, Brandon Finnegan, Wade Davis and Greg Holland combined to retire the last nine Giants in order.
The strong relief work came after winning pitcher Jeremy Guthrie allowed two runs and four hits in five-plus innings. Guthrie had a two-hitter and a 3-0 lead until Brandon Crawford led off the sixth with a single and scored on Michael Morse's RBI double. Buster Posey's grounder plated the Giants' second run later in the sixth.
Right fielder Lorenzo Cain made a pair of nice catches and put the Royals ahead to stay with an RBI grounder three batters into the game. Kansas City padded its lead in the sixth as Alex Gordon hit an RBI double and scored on Eric Hosmer's (HAHS'-murz) single.
Kansas City is now 10-1 in the postseason, with the lone loss coming against the Giants on Tuesday. San Francisco has dropped two straight after winning their previous seven World Series games.
Losing pitcher Tim Hudson allowed three runs and four hits in 5 2/3 innings.
Game 4 is Saturday in San Francisco. Ryan Vogelsong will try to even the series for the Giants against Jason Vargas.
UNDATED (AP) -- The Tampa Bay Rays have announced that manager Joe Maddon has exercised an opt-out in his contract, which was due to expire after next season.
Maddon has managed the Rays for nine seasons, compiling a 754-705 record. He took Tampa Bay to the playoffs four times and won the AL pennant in 2008.

-- Retiring White Sox star Paul Konerko and Philadelphia shortstop Jimmy Rollins are the first co-winners of Major League Baseball's Roberto Clemente Award. The annual honor is given for contributions on and off the field that best represent the sport. Konerko founded the "Bring Me Home Campaign," that assists foster children in Illinois, and Rollins developed JRoll's Aces in 2007 through The Rollins Family Foundation to provide tickets to children in disadvantaged areas who excel in academics.
-- The Detroit Tigers say slugger Miguel Cabrera has undergone successful surgery to remove bone spurs in his right ankle and to repair a stress fracture. Cabrera dealt with ankle problems during the Tigers season, which ended with the team eliminated from the AL Division Series by Baltimore.
-- St. Louis Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright has undergone what the team describes as minor elbow surgery that should not set him back for next season. The Cardinals say it was an arthroscopic procedure to trim a small piece of cartilage from the right elbow.
UNDATED (AP) -- The attorney leading the NFL players' union investigation into the Ray Rice domestic violence case tells The Associated Press the league has not provided documents and witnesses requested by the NFLPA's investigators, while the Baltimore Ravens have refused any cooperation. Attorney Richard Craig Smith is questioning the NFL's sincerity in calling for transparency, saying all parties should cooperate in both investigations. Commissioner Roger Goodell originally gave Rice a two-game suspension for violating the league's personal conduct policy, then made it an indefinite suspension once video of Rice hitting his then-fiancee was released publicly.
UNDATED (AP) -- Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne will not play in the team's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday because of an elbow injury. Wayne was initially listed as day-to-day before being ruled out today by coach Chuck Pagano.
Wayne has caught 38 passes for 434 yards and one touchdown this season.
In other NFL injury news:
-- Bengals receiver A.J. Green is expected to miss Sunday's big AFC North matchup against the Baltimore Ravens because of an injured right big toe. He's missed the last two games with the injury, suffered during a season-opening win in Baltimore. Pro Bowl linebacker Vontaze Burfict was listed as probable with a strained neck after sitting out two games because of concussions.
-- New England Patriots sacks leader and defensive end Chandler Jones will not play Sunday against the Chicago Bears because of a hip injury that is expected to keep him sidelined about a month. The third-year pro has 4 1/2 sacks this season after recording 11 1/2 last season.
-- Buffalo Bills receiver Marquise Goodwin is in jeopardy of missing his second straight game because of a hamstring injury. The speedy second-year player has not practiced since getting hurt during practice last week.
SANTA CLARA, (AP) -- Marcus Mariota (mar-ee-OH'-tah) finally threw his first interception of the season, but it did nothing to prevent sixth-ranked Oregon from staying in the hunt for a FBS playoff berth.
Mariota matched his season high with five touchdown passes and became the Ducks' all-time leader in passing yards while leading a 59-41 romp over California last night. The Heisman hopeful was 18 of 30 for 326 yards through the air, and he also ran for 36 yards on six carries for the 7-1 Ducks,
Royce Freeman scored two TDs while rolling up 112 rushing yards. Charles Nelson padded the rout by scoring on a 58-yard punt return.
COLLEGE ATHLETICS-NORTH CAROLINA/WILLIAMS
CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -- North Carolina men's basketball coach Roy Williams says it's a "very sad time" at the school.
Williams was referring to an investigation that found widespread academic fraud within the athletic department, including his program. Williams says he was "dumbfounded" by the details in the report and says the school "made some mistakes for a long time." As for his own program, Williams said he "thought we were doing the right thing."
The report released Wednesday outlined how fraud ran unchecked in a department for nearly two decades. It involved more than 3,100 students -- about half were athletes -- taking sham classes and earning artificially high grades.

Elsewhere on ice:
-- Jonathan Drouin (DROO'-an) scored his first NHL goal and Steven Stamkos netted his sixth of the season as Tampa Bay doubled up Winnipeg 4-2. Ben Bishop made 40 saves to help the Lightning improve to 3-1-0 on their five-game road trip.

-- Jarome Iginla (juh-ROHM' ih-GIHN'-luh) scored his first two goals of the season and had an assist as Colorado hammered Vancouver 7-3. Matt Duchene (doo-SHAYN') added a goal and two assists to the victory, while Tyson Barrie set up three goals.
-- Edmonton made it three straight wins since an 0-4-1 start as Jordan Eberle (EB'-ur-lee) provided two goals and an assist in the Oilers' 6-3 victory against Carolina. The Hurricanes remain the NHL's only winless team at 0-5-2.
UNDATED (AP) -- The Boston Bruins and New York Islanders each lost key regulars because of injuries suffered in the Isles' 3-2 win on Thursday.

Kevin Harvick will start 33rd, worst of all drivers still left in the Chase for the championship.
CHESTER, Pa. (AP) -- The United States women's soccer team has clinched a trip to next year's World Cup by earning a spot in the CONCACAF Women's Championship.

SAN ANTONIO (AP) -- John Cook and Marco Dawson each shot 7-under 65s for a share of the first-round 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. Nine others are at minus-5.
HAINAN ISLAND, China (AP) -- American Jessica Korda rebounded from an opening double bogey for a share of the second-round lead Saturday in the Blue Bay LPGA in China.
Korda made seven birdies in a 14-hole stretch -- the last three on Nos. 14-16 -- and shot a 5-under 67 to match South Africa's Lee-Anne Pace at 11-under 133 at Jian Lake Blue Bay.
After rain washed out play Friday and forced tour officials to cut the event from 72 to 54 holes, the start of play Saturday was delayed three hours.
UNDATED (AP) -- Ted Bishop has been removed as president of the PGA of America over a sexist tweet directed at Ian Poulter.
Bishop was unhappy about comments Poulter made in his book about the Ryder Cup captaincy of Nick Faldo in 2008 and Tom Watson last month. Bishop said Faldo's record stands by itself. Comparing it with Poulter's achievements, he referred to Poulter as "Lil Girl."
He had one month left on his two-year term.
