Athletics Vs. Royals Lineup: Chris Carter At First Base

Here is the lineup for tonight's game between the Oakland Athletics and the Kansas City Royals. Let's start with how the Athletics lineup looks.

Coco Crisp, CF
Jemile Weeks, 2B
Josh Reddick, RF
Yoenis Cespedes, LF
Chris Carter, 1B
Brandon Moss, DH
George Kottaras, C
Josh Donaldson, 3B
Cliff Pennington, SS

The first five batters are probably some of the A's best, with Carter moving to first base tonight. Moss takes over as the DH and gives the Athletics decent power on the inside. George Kottaras starts at catcher. Two of the weaker spots come at the bottom of the order with Donaldson at third base in the eight hole and Pennington wrapping things up at shortstop.

Pennington has struggled for most of his career against the pitcher he'd face tonight, one Jeremy Guthrie. Can he put it together tonight?

Here is the Royals lineup.

Alex Gordon, LF
Alcides Escobar, SS
Billy Butler, DH
Mike Moustakas, 3B
Salvador Perez, C
Jeff Francoeur, RF
Eric Hosmer, 1B
Lorenzo Cain, CF
Chris Getz, 2B
