Lorenzo Cain returns to the Royals lineup, but is playing right field instead of center. Jarrod Dyson may be faster, but Cain is the better defender and should play center when the pair are in the lineup. Bob Dutton of the Kansas City Star brings us the Royals batting order:

In Erv Da Phenom we trust. The game is on MLB Network, so you won't have to watch college football.
