Lineups: Grud's back

We open a three-game set with Detroit tonight, the third time the Royals (10-19) have seen the Tigers (16-11) this year. Kansas City carries a 2-4 record against the Tigers into the game, and the Royals are throwing Brian Bannister (0-1, 4.91 ERA) up against Detroit’s Justin Verlander (1-1, 2.79 ERA). Just in case you blocked out all your memories of Verlander, he’s 4-0 with a 1.36 ERA in his only four career starts against the Royals, including one already this year. Looks like it’s time to end that streak. Here are your lineups…welcome back, Grud!

For the Royals:
DeJesus – CF
Grudzielanek – 2B
Teahen – RF
Sweeney – DH
