Alex Gordon on Royals' bench Sunday afternoon
Kansas City Royals left fielder Alex Gordon is not starting in Sunday afternoon's series finale versus left-hander Wade Miley and the Houston Astros.
Ryan McBroom is manning left field in place of Gordon on Sunday and hitting fifth. Jorge Soler is in right and Bubba Starling is starting in center. Whit Merrifield is at designated hitter.
The Royals are heavy underdogs at home, but the matchup features one of the highest over/unders on Sunday's slate (10.5 runs), so it offers some potential upside.
