The titans of the Cactus League, the Kansas City Royals, take their spotless 5 - 0 record to the hostile environs of Maryvale Baseball Park, where the winless Brewers of Milwaukee look to get in the win column.

And here is the Brewers lineup as penned by famed calligrapher, Scripto Oldengverdana:

Jason Vargas will set cleat to rubber for a few frames while the Brewers will send Jimmy Nelson--the lesser known son of Ricky Nelson--to the mound in the hopes of dispatching of the Royals early and often. Game time is 3:05 PM CT and can apparently be heard on 610 AM in Kansas City and through the MLB app/website for those with an audio subscription who cannot get 610 over the free airwaves.

Today's prospect-heavy lineup will feature Raul Mondesi, Jorge Bonifacio, Brett Eibner, and everyone's favorite Merrifield, Whit. The unicorn/catcher named Erik Kratz will also get a start behind the dish while Salvador Perez hits designatedly. Cam Gallagher fans will get their shot at seeing him donning a Royals uniform in a quasi-major-league game in the later innings.
