Mike Moustakas returns to the Royals lineup, hitting sixth and playing third. It's nice to see Moustakas back in the lineup, mostly so I don't have to see Jamey Carroll play third.
David Lesky of Pine Tar Press brings us the Royals starting lineup:
#Royals lineup vs. Fister: Lough RF, Hosmer 1B, Butler DH, Gordon LF, Perez C, Moustakas 3B, Bonifacio CF, Getz 2B, Escobar SS, Davis P— David Lesky (@DBLesky) August 17, 2013
I'm not sure why Bonifacio is playing center instead of Dyson, but it's not a big deal either way.
Omar Infante returns to the Tigers lineup at second base, while Brayan Pena is back behind the plate with Alex Avila still on the 7-day DL. The Tigers official Twitter account brings us their batting order:
#Tigers lineup: Jackson 8, Kelly 9, Cabrera 5, Fielder 3, Martinez DH, Dirks 7, Infante 4, Pena 2, Iglesias 6. Fister is starting.— Detroit Tigers (@tigers) August 17, 2013
I predict Detroit will score more than one run against Wade Davis today. FSKC will carry the game locally, so MLB.TV people should not be blacked out.
Song of the Day: Rage against the Machine - Bullet in the Head (NSFW)
RATM is one of the few bands that I have never seen live that I would really like too. If you're feeling nostalgic for the 90's, the music video for "Bullet in the Head" should fill your fix.
