Pitching Matchup

RHP Lance McCullers Jr. (8-3, 3.77 ERA, 90 SO) vs. Ian Kennedy (1-7, 5.31 ERA, 75 SO)

Tonight should be an exciting game as Lance McCullers Jr. always has the potential to dominate an opposing lineup on any given night. With the Royals lineup not looking especially tough this year, McCullers has that much better of a chance to do something special.
