NEW YORK — Television ratings for the Royals' lopsided World Series victory were by far the lowest ever for a Game 6.

Kansas City's 10-0 win Tuesday earned an 8.1 rating and 13 share on Fox. That's down 28 percent from the previous low, an 11.3 for last year's Game 6 between Boston and St. Louis when the Red Sox clinched the title.

The rating peaked with a 9.5/15 from 9-9:30 p.m. EDT as the Royals built a big lead then fell from there.

The 8.1 was the highest of the series, with a chance for a much bigger number for Wednesday night's Game 7.
