Our Padres are 6-0 all-time against the Royals at home, and 19-17 all-time on Cinco de Mayo. Let's improve on both of those records tonight and get a win streak going!
|KANSAS CITY ROYALS||SAN DIEGO PADRES|
|Norichika Aoki - RF||Will Venable - RF|
|Omar Infante - 2B||Everth Cabrera - SS|
|Eric Hosmer - 1B||Seth Smith - LF|
|Salvador Perez - C||Yasmani Grandal - C|
|Alex Gordon - LF||Jedd Gyorko - 2B|
|Danny Valencia - 3B||Kyle Blanks - 1B|
|Alcides Escobar - SS||Cameron Maybin - CF|
|Lorenzo Cain - CF||Alexi Amarista - 3B|
|Yordano Ventura - RHP||Eric Stults - LHP|
In case you missed it, Blanksy was called up from Triple-A El Paso earlier today and he will make his 2014 debut tonight against the Royals, manning first base while Yonder Alonso gets a day off. This should appease lots of Padres fans who have been calling for his call-up all April.
GO FRIARS!! KEEP THE FAITH!!
