Royals’ Lough to bat in No. 3 spot against Cardinals

Outfielder David Lough has gotten off to a nice start in his latest stint with the Royals, batting .345 in his first 29 at-bats since he was recalled on May 17. Because of that – not to mention a match-up against a familiar pitcher – Royals manager Ned Yost had Lough slated to bat third for the first time in his big-league career on Thursday against the Cardinals.
