As the Royals prepare to face the Houston Astros in Game 1 of the ALDS, here is your pre-game soundtrack. The Star has compiled a Spotify playlist of the expected Game 1 lineup and added a few walk-up songs from bench players and pitchers that could play a crucial role this series. The list is not complete — see below — but it’s a pretty good start.

Here’s the playlist, with a track listing below:

The expected lineup:

1. Alcides Escobar, “Pierdo la Cabez” — Zion Y Lennow

2. Ben Zobrist, “The Dawn” — Julianna Zobrist

3. Lorenzo Cain, “Trap Queen” — Fetty Wap

4. Eric Hosmer, “Hood Go Crazy” — Tech N9ne

5. Kendrys Morales, “Se Cree Mala” — Plan B

6. Mike Moustakas, “Roots Reggae Music” — Rebelution

7. Salvador Perez, “Fanatica Sensual” — Plan B

8. Alex Gordon, “I Mean It” — G-Eazy

9. Alex Rios, “Miss You” — The Rolling Stones

The bench:

Jarrod Dyson, “I Don’t Get Tired” — Kevin Gates

Paulo Orlando, “Eu Vim Pra Ficar” — MC Guime

Christian Colon, “Off the Corner” — Meek Mill Ft. Rick Ross

The pitchers:

Wade Davis, “Ackrite” — Dr. Dre

Kelvin Herrera, “Abayarde” — Tego Calderon

Finally, you may be asking: What about Game 1 starter Yordano Ventura? Well, his walk-up song isn’t on Spotify — it’s actually a tribute track titled “Yordano Ventura” by an artist named Gago MC — but it is on YouTube.

Enjoy.
