Is it too much hyperbole to call this the most important series of the year? Maybe, maybe not, but we’ve certainly called prior series the most important of the year and my guess is future series will be called it too. It’s all relative, you know.
Royals will call upon Sam Gaviglio to make his Royals debut and just his 12th major league start. Also due to a sore area on his leg that may or may not be swelling due to a prior injury, Mike Moustakas will DH tonight.
Opposing the Royals will be Kyle “Cy” Gibson, who went to the excellent University of Missouri.
