Aaron Hicks is playing center field again tonight. Austin Hays is in left and Colton Cowser is in right.
Jordan Westburg is the third baseman, and he’s batting ninth.

Tyler Wells has a 3.18 ERA and the majors’ lowest WHIP at 0.927. He’s allowed two earned runs in each of his last seven starts, and two or fewer in eight straight.
Right-hander Michael Grove, a second-round pick in 2018 out of West Virginia University, is making his ninth start and 12th appearance. He’s allowed 36 runs and 58 hits in 47 innings.
Left-handers are hitting .345/.430/.586 against Grove, and right-handers are hitting .267/.294/.476.
