The Kansas City Royals are almost using the exact same lineup tonight against the Detroit Tigers that they employed on Friday night. Lorenzo Cain and Mike Moustakas have swapped spots, but everyone else has stayed the same. Bob Dutton of the Kansas City Star brings us the Royals starting nine:
#Royals vs. Det RHP Verlander: Gordon 7, Hosmer 3, Butler DH, Perez 2, Cain 8, Moustakas 5, Lough 9, Escobar 6, Getz 4 and Guthrie 1.— Bob Dutton (@Royals_Report) July 20, 2013
OBP for the last four guys in the Royals lineup: .274, .312, .275, .277. Just brutal.
Detroit is using the same lineup tonight as they used on Friday night to the tune of zero runs. Joe Martinez of Detroit Tigers Talk brings us the the Tigers batting order:
Miguel Cabrera triple slash line: .362/.455/.668. The third baseman is on pace to have a better 2013 than 2012.
Song of the Day: The Jimi Hendrix Experience - All Along the Wathchtower
No reason for this song, but I don't think you need a good reason to put on some Hendrix. Bob Dylan originally wrote and performed this song, but I'd rather listen to the Hendrix cover.
