The Battle for Grass Creek resumes tonight in Kansas City, with the Royals looking to building on a 3-2 season series lead. How close has the Battle been? The Royals have scored 22 runs, the Mariners, 21.

I would expect nothing less from Baseball's Greatest Rivarly.


Lineup

Seattle Mariners @ Kansas City Royals

09/15/08 8:10 PM EDT

Seattle Mariners Kansas City Royals
Ichiro Suzuki - RF David DeJesus - CF
Yuniesky Betancourt - SS Mike Aviles - SS
Raul Ibanez - LF Jose Guillen - RF

Tug Hulett - DH Billy Butler - DH
Matt Tuiasosopo - 3B Alex Gordon - 3B
Kenji Johjima - C Miguel Olivo - C
Luis Valbuena - 2B Alberto Callaspo - 2B

This may be the best lineup the Royals have fielded this season, depending on how you come down on the Buck/Olivo question.

The pitching matchup is Carlos Silva against Hiram. Silva's ERA is 6.53.

I'm looking forward to hitting the game thread sometime around the third inning with a glass of campari next to my computer...
