Kansas City Royals
The Royals have been struggling as of late in their current 8 game stretch prior to the break. During this 8 game stretch, they’ve scored just 25 runs.
Injuries have really plagued the club.
Duffy has pitched really well with a 3.09 ERA and 1.07 WHIP. So if there is a game they have a good chance at winning, it would be this one.
In his last 3 outings, he’s given up just 2 runs in each over 23 innings total.
The Tigers have also had their share of recent struggles, like the Royals, they dropped a series to the red hot Blue Jays.
Over their last 4 games, they’ve scored just 8 runs. However, prior to their series against the Jays, they had won 7 of 9 games. This should transfer over well to the beaten up Royals.
Pelfrey has actually pitched pretty well as of late, giving up just 1 in each of his last 2 outings. He also pitched a 4.1 inning shut out on June 24th.
With the Royals offense struggling and Pelfrey’s pitching on fire, this should work out well for the Tigers.

Free Kansas City Royals vs. Detroit Tigers MLB Prediction:
The Royals are really struggling offensively, while the Tigers just came up against really tough pitching and average 4.8 runs per game on the season otherwise.
So the favorites offensively are clearly the Tigers.
Pitching wise, the edge goes to the Royals but Pelfrey has been better as of late.
The offense is just too pour for the Royals right now when they are already 25th in the league in that stat category.
