Exactly one year ago today, Marco Gonzales and Jakob Junis faced each other at Kauffman Stadium. It was a game to forget for Seattle, with Marco getting knocked around early and the bats unable to figure out Junis. This rematch, however, promises more intrigue.
Lineups ... Haniger gets a day off. Beckham out another day pic.twitter.com/bGyvBECeRb— Ryan Divish (@RyanDivish) April 9, 2019
Tim Beckham sits for the second straight day, though it’s possible we may see him pinch-hit in the later innings. Mitch Haniger is also somewhat surprisingly getting his first day off of the season, and with his bat scuffling a bit the past few days, may be for the best. This lineup still looks threatening though, with all of Jay Bruce, Edwin Encarnación, and Daniel Vogelbach in the middle for the second straight game. Please keep the dingers and winning going tonight, guys.
