KANSAS CITY - It has been 29 years and for one Royals fan, Tuesday and Wednesday were worth the wait. Andy Muelleman is a junior at the University of Missouri and from Kansas City.

Muelleman has been a Royals fan all of his life and for the first time, gets to watch the boys in blue in the World Series.

Muelleman has been to every single postseason home Royals game of his life, which has been 5 after Tuesday night. But there has been a price to pay.

"I have skipped about 7 classes," Muelleman said.

Muelleman said he has loved every game, except the outcome of the first World Series game.

"We looked flat, and you could tell even with the fans there was something missing," Muelleman said. "The first game of the World Series was nothing like the Wild Card game where you win or go home."

Muelleman was right, but not just about the fans. The Royals looked flat as well.

The Royals mustered only four hits against the San Francisco Giants in game one. The Royals only run came on a solo home-run off the bat of catcher Salvador Perez.

Meanwhile, the Giants took an early lead and never looked back. Outfielder Hunter Pence hit a two-run blast to right-center in the top of the first. After that San Francisco never looked back.

"I still think we have a great shot of winning it all," Muelleman said.

Game two of the World Series starts at 7:07 pm.
