SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Hunter Pence and Pablo Sandoval charged up a pulsating crowd with their shouts and swings, and the San Francisco Giants surged past the Kansas City Royals 11-4 Saturday to tie the World Series at two games apiece.

Down by three runs in the early going and in danger of dropping into a huge hole, the Giants and their fans rallied.

The win ensured the Series will go back to Kansas City to decide the championship. In the meantime, there's Game 5 on Sunday when postseason ace Madison Bumgarner starts for the Giants against struggling James Shields.

The fired-up Pence got three hits, drove in three runs, scored twice and made a terrific catch in the ninth inning. Sandoval delivered a huge, two-run single that he punctuated by tossing his bat several feet.
