The weather is lovely here at Comerica Park for the second game of the Royals season, which starts at noon on Fox Sports KC and KCSP (610 AM). The forecast calls for freezing rain on Thursday morning, so this feels like a welcome reprieve.

Royals (0-1)

1. Nori Aoki, RF.

2. Omar Infante, 2B.

3. Eric Hosmer, 1B.

4. Billy Butler, DH.

5. Alex Gordon, LF.

6. Salvador Perez, C.

7. Mike Moustakas, 3B.

8. Lorenzo Cain, CF.

9. Alcides Escobar, SS.

Tigers (1-0)

1. Ian Kinsler, 2B.

2. Tyler Collins, LF.

3. Miguel Cabrera, 1B.

4. Victor Martinez, DH.

6. Austin Jackson, CF.

7. Alex Avila, C.
