Royals Game Preview: June 29 at Minnesota

KC’s bats erupted for a season-high four home runs last night.  Eric Hosmer posted his second career multi-homer game and Billy Butler tied Bo Jackson for 10th on KC’s all-time home run list.

The clubs will tangle in an afternoon game today – 3:10 p.m.  This game will not be televised – we hope that you can get to the viewing party at the Power & Light District in downtown KC or listen on the Royals Radio Network.

Here’s a look at the lineup vs. former MU Tiger Kyle Gibson, who is making his Major League debut:

Royals lineup:  Gordon – LF, Escobar – SS, Hosmer – 1B, Butler – DH, Perez – C, Moustakas – 3B, Cain – RF, Tejada – 2B, Dyson – CF and Davis – RHP

Twins lineup:  Thomas – CF, Dozier – 2B, Mauer – C, Morneau – 1B, Plouffe – DH, Arcia – LF, Parmelee – RF, Carroll – 3B, Florimon – SS, Gibson – RHP
