Series Preview

Today's Lineups

Michael Bourn - CF Howie Kendrick - 2B
Mike Aviles - LF Mike Trout - CF
Nick Swisher - 1B Albert Pujols - 1B
Carlos Santana - 3B Raul Ibanez - DH
Ryan Raburn - DH David Freese - 3B
Asdrubal Cabrera - SS Erick Aybar - SS
Yan Gomes - C Hank Conger - C
David Murphy - RF Collin Cowgill - RF
Elliot Johnson - 2B J.B. Shuck - LF
Zach McAllister - RHP C.J. Wilson - LHP

Zach "Old Rough and Ready" McAllister takes the mound on just three day' rest because Carlos Carrasco has been moved to the bullpen and the team hasn't called anyone else up yet. (Will it be Trevor Bauer or Josh Tomlin?)

Meanwhile, Jason Kipnis is out of the lineup after exiting last night's game early with an abdominal strain. He was not sent for an MRI today, which seems like good news. Hopefully with rest today and tomorrow (when there's no game) will allow him to be back on Friday. Even a Monday return wouldn't be so bad, given how bad it looked last night.
