Tuesday Thread: Indians at Royals

The Royals look for a fourth straight victory when they host the Tribe at 7:10

Peter G. Aiken-USA TODAY Sports

Hey everybody, Chris Young is on the mound and Steve Physioc is behind the microphone!

Uh....oh, that's...yeah.

Hey, Whit Merrifield is suddenly Ben Zobrist, Eric Hosmer and Lorenzo Cain are good enough to carry this team, and the Indians aren't terribly good when they're being forced to put the ball in play. The Royals are just 2.0 games back of the Tribe, so if they can steal another one, they'll go for the opportunity to play for first place in just 24 hours.

The lineup (yes, Alcides Escobar is still batting second):

S'go, Royals. It may be Young's last opportunity to stay in the rotation. Let's hope he comes through.
