With the game occurring in Kansas City, where attendance has not been an issue this season, there is a normal, non-Maritime-Province-courting start time for a game between the Royals and visiting Racists.

The soon-to-be Halifax Highlanders will throw Carlos Carrasco to the wolves tonight. The 28-year-old righty's peripherals have been every bit as impressive as they were last season. He currently owns a 2.66 FIP and 2.65 xFIP thanks to a sterling 10.36 K/9 and 2.04 BB/9. Of course Cleveland's defense is backing him up, so his ERA is 4.24 thanks in large part to a .336 BABIP and a 67.7 LOB%.
