Game 83, Royals at Mariners
Rowland-Smith vs Greinke, 7:10 pm.
The last time the M’s played Kansas City, they beat Felix and we beat Greinke, so it all evened out at the end of the series. Well, they beat Felix (sort of) again last night, but I’m not going to bet on the M’s repeating history tonight. Greinke vs Hyphen… not great for the M’s.
Line-up wise, Saunders moves up to 7th. He’s had a couple of impressive at-bats that led to walks the last few days, which is my guess for the impetus behind this move. Good to see Wak getting him a little higher in the line-up.
