ALDS Game 5 Lineups: Astros vs Royals

Both teams with the same starters, Gattis moves down a spot

Peter G. Aiken-USA TODAY Sports

The Astros enter the do or die game five matchup with the Royals with the same starting players. Manager AJ Hinch has switched Carlos Gomez to the fifth spot and Evan Gattis to sixth in the only change for either club.

Gomez joins Carlos Correa and Colby Rasmus to form a troika of players who have combined for six home runs in the first four games of the series.

Astros starter Collin McHugh will face the same lineup that he held to two runs in game one of the series.
