Lineups: Cards in Kansas City

It’s blue vs. red…West Missouri vs. East Missouri… Kansas City vs. St. Louis.

Tonight’s the first of six contests in the battle for the state. For the Royals, Brian Bannister (2-3, 3.33 ERA) takes the mound against righty Brad Thompson (4-1, 4.56 ERA).

If you are headed out to the ballpark tonight, don’t forget it’s a Royal Blue Gil Meche T-Shirt Tuesday night…for the first 20,000 fans into the stadium. Get here early…and sport that blue! We all know how bad a sea of red looks at Kauffman Stadium…

Also…a Royals Radio Network Winner Note: Mark Grudzielanek’s home run off the left field foul pole on Friday, June 8 – when the Royals played the Phillies – earned Valerie Sweet of Lexington, Mo., a $10,000 gift card to Blue Springs Harley. Hopefully she will be riding her new bike to The K soon!
