The Royals face Lyles for the first time since he shut them down for one run over six innings in a 3-1 Astros victory. Kansas City has just been facing a run of great pitchers during their offensive slump - Sam Deduno, Tyler Lyonds, Jerome Williams, Billy Buckner, Jason Vargas, Dallas Keuchel, A.J. Griffin, Tom Milone. One of these days the Royals will get to face a crummy pitcher and tee off on him.
