KANSAS CITY -- Angels manager Mike Scioscia is hopeful that continuity, not change, will finally get his high-powered offense in this American League Division Series.
As expected, Scioscia opted against changing his lineup for Game 3 today (4:30 p.m. PT on TBS) at Kauffman Stadium, even though the Angels have amassed just three runs on 10 hits in back-to-back ALDS loses.
The right-handed-hitting C.J. Cron remains at designated hitter against a righty -- Royals ace James Shields -- and Josh Hamilton continues to start, even though he's 0-for-9 with two strikeouts and his timing has been off.
Here's the full lineup behind starter C.J. Wilson:
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
