World Series, Game 7: Giants vs. Royals lineups

3 Comments

Here are the lineups for Game 7 of the World Series, in Kansas City:

Giants:
CF Gregor Blanco
2B Joe Panik
C Buster Posey
3B Pablo Sandoval
RF Hunter Pence
1B Brandon Belt
DH Michael Morse
SS Brandon Crawford
LF Juan Perez

SP Tim Hudson

Giants manager Bruce Bochy has finally seen enough of career first baseman Travis Ishikawa struggling defensively in left field, benching him in favor of Juan Perez even with a right-hander on the mound for the Royals. Michael Morse stays at designated hitter.

Royals:
SS Alcides Escobar
RF Norichika Aoki
CF Lorenzo Cain
1B Eric Hosmer
DH Billy Butler
LF Alex Gordon
C Salvador Perez
3B Mike Moustakas
2B Omar Infante

SP Jeremy Guthrie

Ned Yost is sticking with the same lineup he used in Game 6, which featured only a slight change from his standard lineup in that he flip-flopped Mike Moustakas and Omar Infante.
