Lineups: Happy Father's Day!

Right now, there doesn’t seem to be any better condition to catch a ballgame at Kauffman Stadium this afternoon and celebrate Father’s Day! The weather is beautiful – for (what seems like) a first on Sunday’s at home this year! The first 10,000 dads – or grown men who look dad-like! – will receive a Royals Father’s Day Travel Bag. The Sprint Fun Run around the bases after the game is a sure-fire treat for all ages. And, the Royals have already secured a winning record, 5-3, for the homestand – their first winning homestand of 2007.

Today’s series finale against the Marlins marks the third straight rubber game on this nine-game homestand and the third opportunity for the Royals to walk away with a winning series. Brian Bannister (3-3, 2.91 ERA) takes the mound for the Royals, while southpaw Scott Olsen (5-5, 4.81 ERA) steps in for the Marlins. Here are the lineups…
