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!

Today's Lineups

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!!
