Angels Vs. Royals Lineups: Albert Pujols Batting Third On Saturday

The Los Angeles Angels got off to a strong start on Friday evening by knocking off the Kansas City Royals by a score of 5-0. While Albert Pujols was held hitless, the Angels came through late with some clutch hitting. Combine the late heroics with a stellar pitching performance from Jared Weaver and it was a very promising start to 2012.

The two clubs will meet again for a Saturday matinee on FOX. Here are the lineups for both teams:

Angels:

Aybar SS
Kendrick 2B
Pujols 1B
Morales DH
Hunter RF
Abreu LF
Wells CF
Callaspo 3B
Wilson C

Haren P

Royals:

Gordon LF
Cain CF
Hosmer 1B
Butler DH
Francouer RF
Betancourt 2B
Moustakas 3B
Quintero C
Escobar SS

Hoch SP

Looking for something to watch for? Dan Haren, who has been picked by many to win the AL Cy Young, struck out 25 batters in Spring Training. He only walked two. The Royals lineup isn't a bad one, but all signs point to a very strong day for the righty.

First pitch is set for 1:05 p.m. from Los Angeles.
