The Royals play the Giants on Sunday for the first time since the seventh game of the World Series. San Francisco is having a split-squad day, so Kansas City will miss Madison Bumgarner, their chief October antagonist.

Here is the lineup, with Danny Duffy on the mound. The group looks like the expected Opening Day configuration, save for Ryan Jackson standing in for Omar Infante at second base.

1. Alcides Escobar, SS

2. Alex Gordon, LF

3. Lorenzo Cain, CF

4. Eric Hosmer, 1B

5. Kendrys Morales, DH.

6. Alex Rios, RF.

7. Salvador Perez, C.

8. Mike Moustakas, 3B.

9. Ryan Jackson, 2B.
