Let the Games Begin - Royals Take on Rangers

The day has finally come where it all begins. This afternoon the Kansas City Royals will take on the Texas Rangers in Surprise, Arizona in the first 2011 Spring Training game. The lineup for today's game is as follows-

Mike Aviles 3B

Melky Cabrera CF

Billy Butler 1B

Kila Ka`aihue DH

Jeff Francoeur RF

Alex Gordon LF

Brayan Pena C

Chris Getz 2B

Alcides Escobar SS

Per the KC Star-

The Royals plan to open the game with two innings apiece from Kyle Davies and Bruce Chen. Nate Adcock, Louis Coleman, Tim Collins, Luis Mendoza and Kevin Pucetas are scheduled for one inning.

I am interested is seeing how Adcock, Coleman, and Collins do particularly. Adock and Coleman have a chance to face some major league regulars, while the three pitchers after Collins will likely be pitching against back-ups.

Check back this afternoon for a game recap of the first Royals spring training game.
