The Royals will hope to get a good outing from Luis Mendoza (5-7, 4.32 ERA). The 28-year old right-hander started against the White Sox on July 15 and allowed two runs over seven-and-one-third innings in a no decision.
Opposing him will be Chris Sale (12-3, 2.61 ERA). Sale opposed Mendoza in that July 15 start and got the win, allowing one run over eight innings. Billy Butler is 4-for-11 against Sale with a home run in his career.
First pitch is scheduled for 7:10 CT and the game can be seen locally on Fox Sports Kansas City.
