White Sox Vs. Royals Lineups: Standard Lineup Set For Chicago

The Chicago White Sox are sending out their standard lineup on Sunday vs. the Kansas City Royals, but it's their opponents order that has already raised some eyebrows. The Royals today are batting center fielder Lorenzo Cain in the cleanup spot and maligned utility man Yuniesky Betancourt in the five-hole. Budding start third baseman Mike Moustakas is all the way down at No. 7, thanks to lefty Chris Sale being on the mound.

Here are both teams lineups heading into Sunday:

White Sox

  1. Alejandro De Aza, CF
  2. Kevin Youkilis, 3B
  3. Adam Dunn, DH
  4. Paul Konerko, 1B
  5. Alex Rios, CF
  6. A.J. Pierzynski, C
  7. Dayan Viciedo, LF
  8. Alexei Ramirez, SS
  9. Gordon Beckham, 2B

Royals
