The Kansas City Royals were hoping to keep the momentum going after taking two of three from the formidable Los Angeles Angels to open the season. They traveled to the East Bay on Monday night to take on the Oakland Athletics, but found their offense almost entirely shut down by emerging left-hander Tom Milone and picked up a 1-0 loss.
The Royals will look to get back in the win column on Tuesday night, but they'll need their bats to wake up in order to do so. KC will send lefty Danny Duffy to the mound for his first start of the season. On the Oakland side, right-hander Graham Godfrey will also be making his season debut. If the Royals can pull off the victory tonight, they'll have ace Bruce Chen throwing for them in the rubber match on Wednesday.
Tuesday night's game begins at 9:05 p.m. CT and will be televised on the MLB Network and on FOX Sports-Kansas City. You can listen to the radio broadcast on KCSP 610.
