It's already the 75th game of the season? Life goes by too quickly when you are working all the time and can only sneak in one Royals game a week (quietly cries to self).

It's the battle of rookies today at Kauffman Stadium, with Roenis Elias facing off against Yordano Ventura. Elias has made 15 starts this season, posting a 3.91 ERA with a 4.10 FIP. His strikeout rate is solid, but he has also been prone the free pass. Ventura has started 13 games, with a 3.26 ERA and a 3.29 FIP.

Ned Yost is rocking his lefty-killer lineup, with Lorenzo Cain leading off and Justin Maxwell and Danny Valencia earning the starting nods. Andy McCullough of the Kansas City Star brings us the lineup:

An old friend brings us the Mariners starting order. We miss you, Bob:
