Oh joy, it's time for the annual "Fighting Jason LaCanforas come to Kauffman" series. It seems like every year, the Royals beat the hell out of the Orioles, and LaCanfora is always there to whine about it.
This year, hopefully that won't be any different. The Royals enter the series with a bit of momentum, having just taken three out of four from the Rays. Tonight, their Opening Day starter takes the hill at home looking to continue the winning ways.
It's Danny Duffy vs. Dylan Bundy in the battle of good starters. The Royals' lineup: Escobar 6, Moustakas, Cain 8, Hosmer 3, Perez 2, Soler 9, Moss DH, Merrifield 4, Gordon 7.
Alex Gordon is hitting ninth. Yeesh.
