Game 19 Open Thread - Royals vs Indians

James Shields vs. Danny Salazar

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

The Kansas City Royals will look to move back above .500 tonight as they face off against the Cleveland Indians at Progressive Field.

James Shields will take the mound for Kansas City. Shields has picked up where he left off last season, sporting a 2.00 ERA with a 3.47 FIP after four starts. Danny Salazar will start the game for Cleveland. The 24-year-old has been erratic to start the year, striking out 17 batters over 14 innings but has issued 8 walks and surrendered 12 runs.

Salvador Perez is still in the Royals lineup, because he actually had offseason surgery that turned him into a cyborg. David Lesky of Pine Tar Press brings us the batting order:

Carlos Santana will start at 3B for Cleveland tonight. I personally have not seen Santana play the hot corner, so I'm excited to watch his, um, prowess out there. Nick Camino of WTAM 1100 brings us the Indians lineup.

Let's win one today. For America.
