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:
#Royals vs. Det RHP Fister: Gordon 7, Bonifacio 4, Hosmer 3, Butler DH, Perez 2, Moustakas 5, Cain 9, Dyson 8, Escobar 6 and Santana 1.— Bob Dutton (@Royals_Report) September 14, 2013
This is a pretty solid lineup, all things considered.
The Detroit lineup is the same lineup that the team used last night. The Tigers official Twitter feed brings us their starting nine:
#Tigers lineup: Jackson 8, Hunter 9, Cabrera 5, Fielder 3, Martinez DH, Dirks 7, Infante 4, Avila 2, Iglesias 6. Fister is starting.— Detroit Tigers (@tigers) September 14, 2013
In Erv Da Phenom we trust. The game is on MLB Network, so you won't have to watch college football.
Song of the Day: Steve Miller Band - Swingtown
I'm sure there are people here who can't stand the SMB, but they seem to be enjoyed by most. I have one of their greatest hits CD's and it has a number of solid songs, including this one.
