After winning the first game easily, the Rangerettes jumped out to an 8-3 lead in the second game
"We substituted a little in the second game, but that didn’t hurt us. Our passes started landing a litle short. I think we just relaxed a little.” Davidson .< id.

Missouri-based Series opens Saturday in KC
Friday, October 18,1985 Page 10A
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - They’ll have to go a little bit farther this time to decide the championship of Missouri.
Back in 1944, when St. Louis was about as far west as you could go and still see major league baseball, the St. Louis Cardinals were involved in another World Series. Their opponents then were the St. Louis Browns.
The whole affair was played in Sportsman’s Park. The teams didn’t have to do much more than change from their home whites to road grays.
This time the Cardinals have to cross the breadth of Missouri to play the Kansas City Royals in this Show-Me Showdown starting Saturday night. Fans from 49 other states and other parts of the world presumably will be watching to see whether the championship winds up belonging to the eastern or western border of Middle America.
It’s the first intrastate World Series since the Los Angeles Dodgers and Oakland A’s, on opposite ends of the Golden State Freeway, went at it in 1974. Los Angeles and the California Angels could
have been in this one. So could the New York Mots and New York Yankees. They all were in contention.
"The media always talks about a Subway Series, so there’s nothing wrong with an 1-70 Series,” George Brett, the Royals’ third baseman, said.
A few disc jockeys and other radio types on the eastern and western borders of the rest of America, namely in New York and Los Angeles, have been cynically suggesting that ABC, which owns the telecasting rights to the Series, is ready to take the pipe over potentially dismal ratings for this best-of-seven matchup.
“Whoa, not so fast,” said Tim McCarver, one of the New' York Mets’ broadcasters who will be joining Al Michaels and Jim Palmer in the network booth. "This is the World Series. I think it transcends sports in the same way that the Super Bowl is more than just a championship football game. They could be playing this thing in Wichita and Topeka and you’d still attract the viewers. The World Series is a special part of Americana."
It also is the first all-night World Series. When ABC and NBC (which telecast it in alternate years) bought the rights, extra money changed hands so that the networks could dictate the starting times — and ABC opted for prime time from start to finish.
One thing the fans won’t get to see this year is the designated hitter. This is "the other year,” when the games are played under National league rules. So the pitchers will bat and Dick Dowser, manager of the American league champion Royals, will have to exercise a bit more strategy than he has had to during the course of the season’s 162 games and the seven-game playoffs against the Toronto Blue Jays. Hal McRae, normally the KC DH, now will be limited to pinch-hitting duties.
“It means I’ll just have one swing a game,” he said, "and I’ll have to make that one count.” With McRae out of the lineup, Steve Balboni, the Royals’ young strikeout-prone slugger, likely will bat fourth.
