Scioscia makes slight tweak to lineup for Game 2

ANAHEIM -- Angels manager Mike Scioscia is sticking with the same personnel for Game 2 of the American League Division Series on Friday.

Scioscia is going with right-handed-hitting C.J. Cron at designated hitter against flame-throwing Royals right-hander Yordano Ventura and sticking with Josh Hamilton after an 0-for-5 showing in Game 1.

The only tweak came between Erick Aybar and David Freese, with the switch-hitting Aybar moving up to fifth against a right-hander. Here's the full lineup:

Kole Calhoun, RF
Mike Trout, CF
Albert Pujols, 1B
Howie Kendrick, 2B
Erick Aybar, SS
David Freese, 3B
Josh Hamilton, LF
C.J. Cron, DH
Chris Iannetta, C
