Game 130: Pineda vs. Gee

On August 13, the Royals were 56-60, and sat 10-plus games out of the playoffs. Since then, they have won 12 of 14, and are now just 3 games out of the second wild card spot. Their stock hasn't been all that different from the Yankees, with both teams clawing their way back into the playoff hunt after being left for dead, which adds an interesting wrinkle to this series.

Here's tonight's lineup:

  1. Jacoby Ellsbury, CF
  2. Aaron Hicks, LF
  3. Gary Sanchez, C
  4. Didi Gregorius, SS
  5. Starlin Castro, 2B
  6. Brian McCann, DH
  7. Chase Headley, DH
  8. Aaron Judge, RF
  9. Tyler Austin, 1B

The first pitch is scheduled for 8:15 PM.
