GOG #03 - Royals come rumblin'

The A's remain home after a rare Sunday off day to face Eric Hosmer and the KC Royals. The Royals, fresh off a series win versus LAAAAAAAAAAA, come here and face 3-4-1 in our rotation. The A's and Yoenis Cespedes are just happy to face a pitcher that's not named Felix Hernandez and a leadoff hitter not named Chone Figgins.
