Mets World Series: Lineups announced for Mets and Royals for Game 4

The more things change, the more they stay the same.

The Mets and Royals have released their lineup cards for tonight's World Series Game 4 matchup at Citi Field, and apart from the starting pitchers nothing has changed from last night.

The Royals have former Met and current gigantic human Chris Young on the hill tonight. Young kept the Mets at bay in relief in Game 1—dominated them, really. The Mets will hope for more success tonight, and maybe having had that early look at his pitching arsenal will server them well this evening.

Steven Matz will make his World Series debut—as most everyone on the Mets has done this week—and will face the same top-eight that Noah Syndergaard opposed in Friday night's 9-3 victory.
