On a beautiful sunny day in Kansas City, Daniel Gossett will be taking on Jakob Junis in a game that will determine the series victor. After appearing to have figured something out in Nashville and potentially turned a corner after his return to the big league rotation, Gossett struggled once again in his last effort, leaving pitches out over the plate and giving up way too much hard contact. Gossett does match up well against a swing-happy Royals lineup, so this game will give Gossett a chance to find his footing once more.
A series win to kick off the team’s latest road trip would be a step in the right direction for the team.
First pitch is at 11:15. The lineups are below.
