The 12.9 million viewers Wednesday on Fox for the Kansas City Royals' 7-2 win over the San Francisco Giants were an increase of 6 percent from Game 1. The 7.9 rating with a 14 share was still the second-lowest ever for a Game 2. The Giants' 2-0 win over the Detroit Tigers in 2012 drew a 7.8/12.

The Giants' 7-1 victory Tuesday earned a 7.3, a record low for a Game 1. San Francisco led 5-0 after four innings. On Wednesday, the game stayed tied into the sixth.

Ratings measure the percentage of homes with televisions tuned to a program, while shares represent the percentage of TVs in use at the time.
