Tuesday night will be the first of a three game series as the Kansas City Royals look to keep their fading postseason hopes alive in Cleveland against the division rival Indians.
The tribe was able to win two out of three in heir last series against Kansas City July 18-20.
The Royals are fresh off an 8-3 victory over the Chicago White Sox Monday afternoon while Cleveland lost the final game of a three game piece against the Detroit Tigers 9-5 on Sunday.
At this point, the Cleveland Indians appear to have the American League Central division locked up.
Not only did they have a seven game lead over the Detroit Tigers Monday, they were only 1.5 games behind the Texas Rangers for the best record in the American League.
None the less, the Indians loss to Detroit on Sunday was their sixth in the last nine games.
Tuesday will be the 27th start of the season for Josh Tomlin who has a 12-8 record. Throughout his 153.1 innings of work, Tomlin has a 4.75 ERA and a WHIP of 1.246.
Tomlin has only had one win in his previous nine starts and that came against the White Sox last Wednesday. He only gave up one run on four hits in his five innings on the mound.
This will be his 16th start against the Royals throughout his career, with a 4.66 ERA in 100.1 innings.
Kansas City Royals
Kansas City has won 5 of their last 10 and are trying to catch up with Toronto for the second American League Wild Card spot.
The Royals will send Edison Volquez out to the mound for his 32nd start of the season.
Throughout his last 175 innings of work, Volquez has a record of 10-11 with a 5.40 ERA and a 1.526 WHIP. He hasn’t been able to find the win column in any of his previous 4 starts.
