The calendar has flipped to September and it’s officially time to make every game count.
A huge AL Central series takes place this weekend as the Kansas City Royals and Detroit Tigers get set for battle.
The series has AL Central implications, along with Wild Card potential.
The Tigers are coming for both the AL Central and the Wild Card.
Detroit enters play Friday trailing by just 4.5 games in the Central and have currently jumped into the AL Wild Card 2nd spot, tied with Baltimore.
Detroit comes in fresh off a sweep of the White Sox, where they came from behind in all 3 games.
The Tigers will send out Anibal Sanchez, who was knocked around in his last outing. Sanchez has been an up and down pitcher all season long, as he allowed 5 runs to the Angels on 8 hits in 5.2 innings of work.
Sanchez had success against the Royals earlier this season, throwing 7.0 scoreless innings. In his career, the RH has a 2.56 ERA against them.
Kansas City Royals
The Royals aren’t going quietly as they try to get a chance to defend their title here in 2016.
Currently, they sit 7.5 off the pace in the AL Central and 3.0 out of the 2nd Wild Card spot. They’ll get a chance at the Indians later this month, but they first have to take care of business against the Tigers for that to matter.
Kansas City dropped 2 of 3 to New York at home, which came after an 18-4 streak.
The Royals send out the red hot Danny Duffy, who is 11-2 with a 3.01 ERA.
Duffy had won 10 consecutive games, but that came to a quick stop as he was torched by the Red Sox for 7 runs. The loss marked his first one since June 6th.
Duffy shut the Tigers down earlier this season, as he allowed just a solo home run in 7.2 innings of work.
