Jason Vargas limited the Orioles to one run over 5 1/3 innings Wednesday in Game 4 of the ALCS.

Advice: The Royals could have gone with staff ace James Shields in this one because of Monday's rainout, but they stuck by Vargas and he delivered, yielding just two hits over his five-plus frames. Royals manager Ned Yost wisely went to the bullpen in the top of the sixth inning and the KC relief corps was again dominant, finishing off the ALCS sweep. The Royals are headed to their first World Series in 29 years.

Jason Vargas remains the Royals' scheduled starter for Game 4 of the ALCS on Wednesday.

Advice: The Royals could have pushed James Shields up to start on regular rest following Monday's rainout, but manager Ned Yost has decided to stick with Vargas. The veteran left-hander allowed just two runs over six strong innings in Game 1 of the ALDS against the Angels.
