Royals/Mets World Series Game Four starting lineups

Hey, technically that's "our" plate.

Jeff Curry-USA TODAY Sports

The Royals lead the series 2-1, but the Mets have some confidence back after a big 9-3 win in Game Three. Let's see how the Royals respond. Here's how Manager Ned Yost lines up his hitters against left-handed rookie Steven Matz.

SS Alcides Escobar

2B Ben Zobrist

CF Lorenzo Cain

1B Eric Hosmer

3B Mike Moustakas

C Salvador Perez

LF Alex Gordon

RF Alex Rios

P Chris Young

No Royals hitter has ever faced Matz, who has made just six Major League starts this year. The Royals are 31-27 against left-handed starting pitchers this year, but have hit them nearly as well as right-handers, going .272/.323/.406 against southpaws compared to .266/.321/.416 against right-handers.

Here is how Manager Terry Collins lines up his Mets against right-hander Chris Young.

RF Curtis Granderson

3B David Wright

2B Daniel Murphy

CF Yoenis Cespedes

1B Lucas Duda

C Travis d'Arnaud

LF Michael Conforto

SS Wilmer Flores

P Steven Matz

Yoenis Cespedes is 1-for-12 with a double and a walk lifetime against Chris Young. David Wright 1-for-10 with three walks. Curtis Granderson is 0-for-3 with a walk. Daniel Murphy is 0-for-3 with two walks. Lucas Duda and Travis d'Arnaud are both hitless in one trip against Young, while Wilmer Flores walked in his only appearance.

First pitch is at 7:15 CT on FOX.
