Royals-Orioles game averages 5.9 million viewers

The Kansas City Royals’ extra-innings victory in the AL Championship Series opener averaged 5.9 million total viewers – up 9 percent from last year’s comparable game.

The Royals won 8-6 in the 10th inning Friday night in Baltimore. Kansas City and Baltimore are the two smallest markets in ALCS history.

The telecast peaked with 6.8 million viewers from midnight to 12:15 a.m. EDT, helping TBS win the night across all of cable television.

Last year’s comparable game was the St. Louis Cardinals’ 3-2, 13-inning victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 1 of the NLCS.
