Royals Vs. Indians: Starting Line-Ups Announced

After a miserable homestand in which the Kansas City Royals went 0-11, the team will likely look forward to getting back on the road of all things just to have a change of scenery in hopes of curing the jinx the team is obviously under. The young line-up can't get a timely hit in any shape or form, and the pitching does just enough to lose a game. It's been a very unfortunate streak for a team with much higher hopes in 2012. Tonight they can begin to turn things around on the road at Cleveland. Here's the starting line-ups.

KANSAS CITY ROYALS
1. Chris Getz (L) 2B
2. Alex Gordon (L) LF
3. Billy Butler (R) DH
4. Eric Hosmer (L) 1B
5. Jeff Francoeur (R) RF
6. Mike Moustakas (L) 3B
7. Humberto Quintero (R) C
8. Mitch Maier (L) CF
9. Alcides Escobar (R) SS

CLEVELAND INDIANS
1. Jason Kipnis (L) 2B
2. Asdrubal Cabrera (S) SS
3. Shin-Soo Choo (L) RF
4. Carlos Santana (S) C
5. Travis Hafner (L) DH
6. Shelley Duncan (R) LF
7. Jack Hannahan (L) 3B
8. Casey Kotchman (L) 1B
