Zack Greinke is taking the mound for the Kansas City Royals as he tries to improve on his 7-11 record. Greinke is sporting a 3.99 ERA.
His last outing was superb as he went eight innings and gave up one run against the Anaheim Angels. Of course the Royals scored just one run and the game went to extras where they eventually lost.
Such is Greinke's luck.
The Indians will be trotting out Jeanmar Gomez, a 22-year old right hander with a 1.54 ERA and a 3-0 record.
Here's how the Royals are batting in the first game.
