Jeremy Guthrie will take the mound for the Kansas City Royals, while Alex Cobb will start for the Tampa Bay Rays. Check out the game preview for a breakdown of the two pitchers; I didn't completely mail this one in.

Pretty standard lineup for the Royals today, although Mike Moustakas has slid down to No. 7 after hitting No. 5 for most of the season so far. The illustrious Joel Goldberg of Fox Sports Kansas City brings us the Royals lineup:

Luke Scott will start the game in left field for the Rays after coming in as a pinch-hitter the last two games. We turn to Mark Tompkin of the Tampa Bay Times for the Rays batting order:

Song of the Day: Flogging Molly - Devil's Dance Floor

"Devil's Dance Floor" is one of the best tracks off Swagger, one of Flogging Molly's best albums. I saw Flogging Molly at the Uptown Theater a few years back, and they were one of the best headliners I have seen perform live.
